Barnes & Noble answers Amazon's Kindle challenge with the promising $249 Nook Tablet and a price cut on the Nook Touch e-reader.
From March 24 through 30, Barnes & Noble will throw in a free Nook Simple Touch when you buy its larger HD+ tablet.
While it doesn't necessarily beat the Kindle Paperwhite, the $119 Nook GlowLight is an excellent e-reader that's strongly worth considering if you don't want to buy into the Amazon ecosystem.
The 2013 Kindle Fire HD works perfectly as an e-reader with a few extra tablet features, but users looking to take full advantage of Amazon's ecosystem should pay more for the Fire HDX.
With convenient features like Send to Kindle and Shelfari integration, Kindle for Android is a rock-solid e-reader app, especially for anyone already invested in the Amazon ecosystem.
