Dazed and Confused (by all the options, Help!)

Hello there,

Not only am I a new poster, but after reading through so many of the threads I feel like I am more confused than ever and on information overload! I was all set to purchase a Kindle, then I received an email about the Nook. On paper the Nook looks great. But will it be good in reality? Should I hold out a while longer until some reviewers get their hands on a Nook??

What I want:
I want to be able to purchase and read fiction bestsellers and new releases

I want to be able to load (either straight up or thru conversion) PDF articles I need for my job (psychologist)

I want to be able to read library books (either through sideways loading, rigged conversion, whatever, as long as it works)

What I like the idea of:
text to speech
color
ergonomic/easy to hold
wi-fi
international usage.

So, I know some of these features favor Kindle, others favor Nook. Or am I missing the boat on another, better item? I like the pricepoint of these readers and can't spend a lot more.

What do I do?!?!? Help please!

Kerry
