Amazon as the pioneer to start a mobile book reader, "Kindle", where you can carry this handheld device to read books anywhere. And you can also purchase books from amazon network too. A great device and a lot of convenience. Also, Barnes and Noble follow suit, with the launch of "Nook", with similar function. I just wonder any mylot members has experience with any of these two device above. Would you prefer to use this handheld device to read your favorite books or you rather have a hard copy of those paperback?

Well I like the fact that I can order a Kindle right off. The Nook, for which I went to Barnes and Noble, asked for a brochure, and the folks kindly and happily gave me one, allowed me to sit down and read up on its features. The nook won't be available until my birthday February 1st. The Kindle, you can get now. but I tell folks this: read up, compare the two, both prices are steadily the same. Although Barnes and Noble is starting the Nook at $259 SO, that means that it can go down in time, whereas, Amazon's Kindle started at $359(the DX is currently $499 and that needs to go down a good hundred(Nooks are temporarily out of stock) but I would like to see how it feels to have one. A great space saver/

I saw my friend has pile after pile of books, and I just think that it is time to get one of those electronic books to read, which one handheld device could hold 1000 of copies of books, which he could sort and find in a matter of second. Like you said, it save a lot of space also.
