Confirmed purchaser Avid reader

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
When I lost my Kindle paperwhite I replaced it with a Nook at less than half the price. Having had it a month now I would say that there is nothing to choose between them exept the price and the lake of landscape mode on the Nook.
Bad points:
None so far.
