      I can tell you one disadvantage of the Nook versus the Kindle. At least last time I checked.  It's just a general disadvantage and may change in the future (?) but it can impact you in how useful your e-reader will be post-JMT.
      I work at a library and you can download free e-books via Overdrive in our library system. The Nook users have to sync the books via usb cable, but the Kindle users can actually do it wirelessly. This is something separate and apart from the way the two brands download purchased books wirelessly from their respective stores B&N and Amazon.

      Has anyone considered or tried a Nook e-reader? I've never used an e-reader before, but now that I'm doing the JMT, thought it would be better than taking hard copy books. The Nook Simple Touch (with backlight) looks lighter than the Kindle PaperWhite, and a little cheaper, but I'm not sure if there is an advantage to the Kindle or not. Would love to hear your thoughts.
