I can't decide what kind of e-reader to get!! Which one do you all have (if any)? My friend loves her Nook but I hear great things about the Kindle too. And then if I decide on a Kindle, what kind of Kindle? Regular, Fire, etc? Aaahhh! I'm not good with having lots of choices.

 I have a Kindle 3 that I really like except that it can't be used in Canada to borrow library books. I got a Kobo Mini for Christmas which I think I'm going to like for commute reading. I haven't set it up.  I've heard that it can be difficult to do so hopefully it goes well.

Hi Jillybean - welcome to the Book Nook!

I have a Kindle DX, DH has a Kindle Touch and DS has a Kindle 3.  I also have a Kindle Fire that I got last xmas.  We are a Kindle family b/c Amazon has a huge amount of books and great prices and very important to us - the Kindle works internationally.   We also signed up for Prime when I got the Fire so lots of tv shows/movies are available for free on instant streaming.

I prefer reading on the regular Kindle vs the Fire.  The Kindle is more like paper where the Fire is like reading on a laptop.   There is the new paperwhite Kindle which does have a backlight for reading at night.   

I also suggest going to Best Buy or any other store where you can see the devices and play around with them.

If I can answer any other questions about the Kindle just let me know =)
