I am actually looking into this as a possible gift for my daughter's birthday - the new ones are less than an ipod touch. I am torn between the kindle 3 wifi and the nook wifi. What I haven't been able to figure out is if she would be able to access the internet and do simple searches or facebook on it - she always has her nose in a book - she has an old ipod....I can't afford an IPAD so that is out of the question. I like the nook because you can checkout books from the library.....but amazon store has cheaper books. Any thoughts?
