Which would you buy???


Kindle? Sony Reader? Nook?
I'm thinking of purchasing one of these, but I'm not sure which is better and why?
I want light weight. I want to be able to read in sunlight. I want a lot of books.
Anyone have one of these toys? Why did you choose it and how do you like it?

I'm leaning toward the Nook for it's book sharing capabilities.

I love my Kindle. It's just so easy to order books, and they have the lowest prices on the books I read. The experimental browser is just good enough to get me info when I need it.

But that's a handy extra. I would never get a non-wireless reader. Wi-fi isn't good enough... the ability to buy a book at any time from the cheapest bookstore is it for me.

A new e-reader is coming out that turned my head, based on the Android platform. I'd love it, but it's expensive, and if my e-reader could do things like too much internet, I would internet instead of read.

I have a kindle myself. I use it all the time. I find it actually very easy to read in bright sunlight. I also like it's audio capabilities. I use mine every day.

i'm leaning toward the Kindle. Although, both are pretty much the same I'm worried about B & N in general. Their big store in NYC just closed. If they go under what happens to their Nook?
Regarding the sharing on the Nook- Like it only lends out for 14 days and only to one person at a time and the lender has not access to the book until it's returned to them. The battery life is only 10 days as opposed the the kindle's 14 without the wireless on.

My folks love their kindles, but my wife played with a Nook and bit and loved it. She loves the Nook app on her iPod right now - so I think I'm gettingher one for Christmas.
