      The nook tablets are great, but before you buy you may want to consider that Barnes & Noble is not in great business shape. There are rumors about them possibly closing stores and I’ve have heard things about nook may be going away too. My kids have those because they were economical at the time and they love them. I would just think about B&N situation right now.

        Excellent point!! That’s exactly why I bought my kids used Kindle touches this past month. I love e-readers and have a Kindle Fire, but know they would be more interested in gaming than reading with a tablet. I told them they could use mine if they wanted to play a game. If I am reading a book, I can just download it to that child’s Kindle and read it, while he/she plays an app/game on my Fire. It has been a wise choice. They are reading WAY more than before they got them. Some Nooks are available in color and about available new for the same price as a used Kindle Touch, but I was wary of buying one now since B&N is rumored to be going out of business within a year.
