It's small/thin and lighter than a nook, navigation is more straightforward and easier, very long battery life, can load library books via USB, can load any free or low-priced books in epub format (including ebooks from B&N, but not amazon's ebooks).
The Sony PRS 300 might be what I'm looking for. Between the free epub books from the library plus books in the Sony Reader Library and on Google I should have plenty to read. I'll have to check it out at Best Buy, Walmart or Costco.
Thank you very much.
