Barnes & Noble recently released a new version of their popular Nook. The new model is called the “Nook Touch,” and it’s very impressive! Like the original Nook (now called the “Nook First Edition”), it has a black & white screen, but the similarity pretty much stops there!
Consumer Reports Magazine evaluated the new Nook Touch against several models of the Kindle and declared the Nook Touch the Champion!

I own a Color Nook and I love it. But the difference in price could be a big deal! A Color Nook costs $249. A Nook Touch is only $139 (which is the same as the Kindle, but the Kindle is making a special offer of $114 if you “click here“).
Evaluate your options carefully. Once you commit to either Kindle or Nook your locked in. You can’t read your Nook library on a Kindle, and you can’t read your Kindle library on a Nook.
I like my Nook for reasons beyond its features. I enjoy going to my local B&N bookstore and connecting with all the in store discounts and freebies. I like being able to purchase a cup of coffee and looking through real books looking for something I like. You can’t get that from Amazon!
Barnes & Noble has a wonderful mix of the old and the new going on… I like their magic!
