And in the e-reader race, Nook once again takes the lead!

The other day I did a blog entry saying e-readers are getting cheaper.  I raved about the fact that there is now a $79 Kindle, which I thought blew Nook out of the running.  Then an Internet friend pointed out the fact that if someone bought the cheap Kindle, they'd have to put up with ads all the time.  OK, so the Nook was going to cost considerably more, but it would probably be worth $30 or so to avoid ads.  
Today I got the news that Nook has reduced the price of the basic reader to $99.  Read about it HERE.  Oh, and there are no ads to deal with.  


Patsy, aren't you glad you haven't bought your Nook yet?

A little friendly competition is bringing the prices of e-Readers down. That's a good thing for consumers. And especially, right around the Christmas shopping season. Nook or Kindle, if you purchase one, you'll be getting hours of great reading. What's not to like?

I just forward the link to my mother. She has been asking what she should get my soon-to-be 16 year old daughter for her birthday. Thanks. :)

I hate ads!! If you pay for something, I don't think you should have to put up with them. If it's free, that's different.
