If reading is something you enjoy doing, one thing you will probably find yourself wondering every once in a while is whether or not an e-book reader is a good choice for you; of course, if you take a closer look at exactly what an e-book reader offers you, you will soon let go of wondering whether or not an e-book reader is a worthwhile purchase – as you will realize how wonderful it would be to have the ability to carry hundreds of books with you wherever you go, and to download books from anywhere you are – and will instead start asking which e-book reader you ought to purchase. And of course, once people reach a point where they are asking this question, the choices they tend to narrow things down to are, “Should I buy a Kindle or should I buy a Nook?”
Of course, for each reader trying to determine whether a Nook or a Kindle is the right choice for them, there will be different things that make one stand out from the other; if you ask us, however, we will tell you unashamedly that we are big fans of the Kindle, and that we would advise anyone trying to make a decision between the two to go with the Kindle over the Nook – and here are our reasons why.
1) Kindle works perfectly with Amazon: of course, the Nook works perfectly with Barnes & Noble’s online store, which is also great, but there is a lot more offered by Amazon – and there are a lot more options for seriously inexpensive books from Amazon – which makes it preferable to have something that works in concert with Amazon than with Barnes & Noble.
2) Kindle is the “innovator” when it comes to e-book readers: In the same way the majority of people would rather own an iPod or an iPad than a product that was released afterward and largely copied them, most people find that Kindle is always one step ahead of the curve, as they were the pioneers in the e-book reader market, and are consistently the largest innovators in this area as well, meaning you will always be on the cutting edge of the e-book reader landscape with a Kindle.
3) Kindle is affordable: There are, of course, different levels of prices for the Kindle, but in the end, you can get a Kindle for as little as $69, and even though there are some readers that undercut even this price, you will not find anything else that matches the quality of Kindle for a price that low! In fact, even the high-end Kindle Paperwhite retails for as little as $119!
Every person has individual tastes, but for our money, there is nothing that tops the Kindle – and this includes the Nook.
