Mrs. Marcos is shopping for an e-book reader. We’ve been talking a bit about e-book readers in several threads including the book club, and a post about the Kindle and how much Tearitup loves hers but because Mrs. Macro can’t make a decision herself without an endless amount of research she’s asking for more help.
I personally have no interest in a straight up e-book reader and I have advocated for the iPad/2 to several people. There are many complaints that it can cause your eyes to become tired whereas the “e-ink” used by the Nook and Kindle do not create the same problem. However, the Nook and Kindle don’t do much other (out of the box) than read books whereas the iPad/2 acts as an e-book reader and a nearly full-functioning computer.
Mrs. Marcos provided an article from CNet which compares the Nook, Kindle, and iPad and offers suggestions on what you should buy but she wants to hear from you guys. So go ahead and vote on the sidebar and then comment on below with what you’d like to see. If you don’t already own one feel free to pick what you’d like to have right now or in the future.
