    My Kindle Fire and Nook Simple Touch came in today

      And I am loving it. Going from Nook Color to the simple touch was seamless and it is nice to beable to read outdoors and the Fire is amazing! better looking screen and easier to use than the nook and looks more expensive like in a higher end tablet and I can still read my nook books on it. your able to change security settings to allow 3rd party apps so threw getjar i was able to get the nook app. i am loving it. i still love the nook products but i am loving the kindle.

          Ha, that is the opposite of my impressions setting up my mom's KF. It just seemed like a boxy, generic, fat-bezel tablet, whereas the Nooks are actually, ya know, designed. To each their own, I suppose.

            I find the Nook Touch side of that more compelling as an upgrade than the Kindle Fire side of it. For someone who is not inside of the Amazon ecosystem, the only substantial advantage I can see to the Fire is the greater ease of getting 3rd party app access, which for me is not worth the clunkier approach to graphic novels.
            The Nook Touch, on the other hand, offers the eInk reading and battery life advantages, and when rooted can get almost all the ereader options that one might wish to have loaded onto it.
