    This is actually the deal-breaker for me, any suggestions welcome. It seems that books for the 'Nook' is 2x the price to that of a book on a 'Kindle'.

    Current NYT bestseller top 5:

    The Help Amazon $9.99 B&N $9.99

    Hit List Amazon $12.99 B&N $12.99

    Water for Elephants Amazon $4.17 B&N $9.99

    State of Wonder Amazon $12.99 B&N $12.99

    The Kingdom $12.99 B&N $12.99



    So, out of the top 5, 4 of them are priced the same by Amazon and B&N. Perhaps you could give us some examples to illustrate your complaint.

    I believe the publisher usually sets the price, and the price is usually the same anytime I've tried to check.

    That said ... I love my Kindle :) But I don't have a Nook to compare it to.
