Check a few of your favorite books on amazon.com and bn.com - I find that Kindle prices are sometimes lower, sometimes the same, but never higher.
Also, if you want to borrow library ebooks, with the Nook, you have to connect it to your computer to transfer books, while kindle books can be sent to your device without the need of a computer.
Both devices have their advantages and disadvantage apart from the ecosystem: The Paperwhite has a better screen resolution and is being reported to have better contrast, but is lacking the hardware buttons and sd card slot that the Glow has.
And, it may be interesting to know that Kindle users typically love Amazon customer services, not sure about BN.
Just some food for thought....
