My new Nook came yesterday!  Barnes and Noble came out with their latest generation that is full touch screen with E-ink.  I'm not a big fan of B&N as they are too "stuffy" for my taste but this will truly compete with Amazon's Kindle.'s site is far more user-friendly and so is the Kindle but this is really nice.

DH is the one that loves his Nook and he always buys more interesting books than I do.  I bought mine so I don't have to steal his.

Right now I'm reading "Seal Team Six: Memoirs of an Elite Navy Seal Sniper" by Howard E. Wadson. Just touch the screen and it moves to the next page.  This is so much easier than the older Nook I have.

Yeah.  I know.  Odd choice for a quilter right?  DH and I love these kinds of books and since he's already purchashed them, why buy them on the Kindle?

As far as which one is better, the new Nook or the Kindle, it's hard to say.  I'm just not a B&N person.  If came out with a touch screen Kindle, I'd go for that.  I think it would just depend on your perception of the two stores and who you would want to support.

I have the Nook with the apps and I love it. You will really enjoy it. Think your new biking hobby is a good one and you have absolutely inspired me with that Bargello quilt - also am thinking of digging my old fashioned bike out of the shed and just going for a ride. Thanks Bernie
