So the wife & I have a 1st gen Nook. Love it. We also have an ipad with the nook apps installed. I'm a gadget hound so I want to get one of the bookstore tablet's for Christmas. The problem is I don't know what the Nook Color/Tablet does that the ipad doesn't. We have accounts with BN.com and I went with the nook over the kindle originally because I hated that the Kindle had the keyboard and the Nook had lending and library functionality before the Kindle. We have Amazon Prime so having the Fire would be nice for streaming purposes, but none of our books would be on it and it's silly to have two accounts for e-books. Guess I just want some advice.
