Though the Kindle, Kindle DX, Nook, and a host of other eReaders have come onto the scene since 2007 I really haven’t been a fan of the genre. This may have changed with the introduction of the Nook Color. I recently check this out and gave my thoughts on it in my weekly column in Laptop Magazine.
Having color is a big thing to me, and if you are looking for a eReader for your love one, you just might want to check this one out. Going for $249.00, it is a little pricey than the original or the Kindle, but it is less than the iPad. So if you are looking for a good middle ground, this could be it.
