  • Had a bit of bother on Currys website (unable to deliver and had to collect from store 30 miles away!) so I checked out the Nook website (nook.com) and theyre doing the same offer with free delivery. :j

    I've been doing some research, after reading the comments from other posters, as I was wondering if it may be worth getting an e-reader at some point, and I found this website very useful (although american, but the general advice applies to UK devices as well).

    this seems to sum up the pros of the different screens:

    The advantage of eink is the powersaving. Most readers with eink can operate up to 8 weeks without charging.

    And are easier to read in the sun.

    Buy the Nook for £29, its better than the basic Kindle as it has a touch screen and at the moment less than half the price!

    I bought one yesterday from Sainsburys and got nectar points as well!
    I have a small question though: I wanted to read the Evening Standard on it but it says you have to pay for it. I thought the paper was free?
    Apart from this I love my Nook. Well worth the £29!
