So here's the scoop: I used to have a Sony E-reader, and it was okay. I currently read e-books on my smartphone, but I'd like a bigger screen. What I don't know is whether I want some sort of tablet reader or a dedicated e-reader, so I'd like folks to share with me what they use and why (or why not) they love it. If you have a Kindle product and want to share that love with me, fine, but just be forewarned that I will not purchase one.
Right now I'm leaning towards the Nook. But I don't know if I want the lowest-tech, non-color Nook with e-ink technology for ease of reading, or if I want to upgrade to something flashier. If I go for a tablet, should it be a Nook tablet or other? I like the idea of doing more things on my e-reading device, but part of me wonders if that just means I would read less because I would be distracted by other things on a tablet-type of device...
I still intend to keep physical books as my primary reading material, but I want an e-reader for travel/vacation and I'd like to be able to download advance reading copies from NetGalley and other publisher sources.
What say you, gentle reader?
