I don't know much about ereaders, in fact I'm kind of clueless and lost looking at the specs and information, so I thought I would ask here to see if members here, who actually have experience with ereaders and know what they are talking about, have any advice. Based on what you've seen and heard so far about the Nook Simple Touch and Kobo Touch, as well as your experiences with these companies and ereaders in the past, which do you think would be the best bet?
I really just want an ereader that allows me to read epub files comfortably. PDF support so that I can use it to read work files on the go would be nice, but is not necessary. I'm mainly just going to use it for pleasure reading.
Thank you in advance for any advice you can give.
Wait and do not buy yet!
I think you should get real advices from real people (not paid companies) in order to get a better and final idea of how they work.
But, just comparing those two, without knowing what you like to read or where you live, I would say Nook, because B&N bookstore, I think is better than Kobo's. But that could change depending of if you live outside of USA or the type of titles you like and read.
