Thanks for your input.  Voracious reader here.  I LUV actual pulp, but once on the road, would have to switch to electrons.

Gotta go the library and find the relevant Consumer Report issues on these babies.

We each have Nook Colors from last year that we gave each other.  Margo does not use hers as much as I do. Had one minor problem which Barnes & Noble corrected by having a new one sent to us and reloaded it for us.  they were very helpful.

Just jumped into this scene with one each for the wife and me.  I did the research so I went with the Nook Tablet, mostly because I could add memory.

Funny thought/rememberance.  When I went to work for Amoco we had the second largest computer system in the US only behind the DoD.  I can, and did, put put more memory in one Nook than the 500K sq ft building I worked in could have held.  And at less than 1$ per gig for two 32 gig cards, back then the disk drives were something like $1000 per kilobyte.  Times have changed a "bit".
