Hmmmm, who to believe?

I have been toying with the idea of getting an eReader.


Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE to read. I also love to own books, Anyone who has helped me move knows i LOVE to own books...lol. How much better would it be for everyone involved if all my books were contained in a neat lil 7x5 (approx, depending on which one i like) container. Now here comes the issues.

Which eReader to get. I have been reading all the reviews and talking to people who have eReaders and I am just as confused as ever. The Kindle is a known name but from my understanding it locks you into where you can get books from, the Nook same prob, The Look Book has bed reviews but i have a friend with one and she loves it PLUS you can check ebooks out of the public library (kinda defeats the owning part for me, but cool to be able to do). I hope anyone who has please please please chime in and let me know your thoughts.

Oh and I've heard the same thing about Kindle locking you in, but supposedly my nook will accept more forms of books from places other than B&N, I have not tried this yet, but the owner's manual is telling me I can buy from elsewhere.

Oops, sorry - you can do the library thing with nook too if your library offers it.
