I bought one about a year ago for my better half and she loves it. She is not a techie and found it very easy to use. I recommend getting a soft case for it, I found one in Deals for about $5 including shipping that works great.

Seriously thinking about getting one for me since the other one is never available. I read books on my phone but the difference in the screens is huge not to mention better battery life.

@gelo48: thank you for your comment. I thought about that last night, the case I would possibly need lol. But I have a feeling it is really worth the money. Especially 50 dollars.

about a month ago radio shack had these online for $19.99 but they were sold out with in minutes but I was able to get walmart to price match them I bought 5 of them and now have cheap gifts to give.

I have been in the market for one, and there a ton on Craigslist. This might be good leverage to negotiate a lower price on a barely-used model there.

I have switched back and forth between Kindles and Nooks several times, and currently have one Kindle Paperwhite while my wife has the Nook Simple touch. Both are great.

I gave my mother a Nook Simple Touch for Christmas and she loves it. She has rheumatoid arthritis that makes holding a book extremely uncomfortable. The Simple Touch plus a stand means that she can read comfortably again.

I have a Simple Touch and love it. In fact I got one for my wife a couple of years ago and when the Simple Touch Glowlight came out last year I got her one and took over her Simple Touch. She got me a Simple Touch Glowlight for Christmast last year and have since handed down my Simple Touch to my brother. We're all fans!

I love the Nook Simple Touch, one of the best e-readers ever. If you want a really good dedicated device for reading books, this is it. Super long battery life, responsive and turns pages quick, great screen, very clear/sharp, light weight, easy to hold, touch screen makes looking up words in text easier, etc. E-ink is definitely the way to go for an ereader, they're a lot nicer to read than an LCD or other similar screen.

It is hard to argue with this price point. But while the device has an overall 4/5 star review on the B&N site, there are an overwhelming number of people complaining of dealing with multiple lemon units, Wi-Fi problems, unresponsive screens, and poor customer service. After reading the negative reviews, I just couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/p/nook-simple-touch-barnes-noble/1102344735

@paulgrant: Well while I agree with negative responses and take those into consideration, 50$ for it seems reasonable. If it is faulty there is always warranty thank goodness :)

Not that you'll probably ever NEED to use it, but the Nook has one major advantage over the Kindles -- a microSD card slot. If you ever side-load books it means you can just swap the cards rather than having to reload the books onto a new device.

@czupik: i tried very hard to get one when they were 20 bucks at radioshack. woulda loved it for 20.

50 is hard for me knowing they went as low as 20

@kipshiller: It wasn't easy for me after calling every radio shack with in 60 miles of me and being told they were all sold out I then had to go to 4 Walmart before I found one that would price match it. I use one of them myself now and they work really well defiantly worth the $20.

So, I just ordered a kindle for $70 (and I still have the chance to cancel the order). Is saving $20 worth the hassle of stripping DRM and converting amazon books? Also, does B&N have anything like the Amazon Prime borrow-1-book-a-month setup?

So, I checked out the Prime lending options, and I don't see much that interests me. I just canceled my Amazon order, and purchased a Nook. Thanks, op!
