Barnes & Nobles just announced their "kindle-killer" and it looks sweet! http://www.engadget.com/2009/10/20/barnes-and-noble-officially-launches-nook-e-reader-259-pre-orde/ It sounds sweet and is a bit cheaper than the Kindle. I bought a used Kindle about 9 months ago and I've loved it, but this thing looks great. My only concern is that all of the ebooks I bought on the Kindle likely won't be able to transfer (unless someone can please tell me otherwise). I guess I'll wait til November and see Amazons comeback, which I hope is sweet... but I'll have to hold off on buying ebooks until I see what happens. Why can't all ebook readers get along and make it so that you can read any ebook on any machine... similar to most mp3 players?
