I had really decided to go ahead and get the Kindle because it is supposed to be the more highly rated e-reader. I've read a million arguments about the Nook vs. Kindle. I've been to the Free Kindle site link. However, what I am seeing is that the books available free are not the books by current popular authors I'd be interested in.
You can also download books free from the Project Guttenberg site for the Kindle because they are now public domain (expired copyrights). Another blogger sent me a blog called Free ebooks and Tips but it pretty much sent me back to that Amazon free book site which don't offer a whole lot... or maybe I don't know how to look which is very, very possible.
You can borrow more current books by popular authors free on the Overdrive system available through the Honolulu Library (or other Public Libraries) on the Nook or Sony eReader for three weeks.
So here I am sitting, about to click on the Amazon button to buy the Kindle because it is supposed to be the best machine around. However, my finger just can't seem to make that final push just because Kindle wants you to buy their books and won't allow you to borrow from the public library.
Therefore, I'd like to know if there are any Nook owners out there (I know there were three of four of you on my earlier post) who still totally love (or are OK with or have a gripe about) their eReaders because it sounds like it's the Kindle owners who are passionate about their machines.
POSTSCRIPT: Art says he can't stand my indecision any longer. Therefore he says we should go with my Decision #47 which was to get the Kindle now, get the next generation Nook... or maybe an iPad (which can read the Overdrive) for him later. Waaait... a ... minute... Since when did I ever mention the ipad? Hunh?
