    I use the kindle app because I can't find the book I'm looking for on google books. I use Nook app 90% of the time. Like it the best.

    I use Kindle because I pretty much always did and that is where I had my books. Tried the books app but didn't find what I was looking for. Basically, to me, they're similar. I'm reading for pleasure, I am sure there are different features that are appealing if you're reading text books and highlighting passages and such. Sure, Books maybe more visually appealing but honestly, it's the words on the screen...

    To me, I like the google books especially the nifty widget, makes me want to buy books from there. But Kindle has a lot more than the Google book store does, specifically in the world war 2 area.

    If I recall this was also addressed in the other thread you started. I would never consider using the Google reader for many reasons. Kindle or nook app for me. Some prefer Aldiko.

    I actually found books I want to reed on Google Books. Of course, being a mostly computer geek, I also read the books via the Web, which comes in handy at times. Google Books remembers your last read position, so you can read at your computer without people noticing it, or read from the Xoom.

    My main grump with Amazon at the moment is that their Graphic Novel Section has a lot of soft porn and porn in general. So it looks like not many of the normal american distributors for Graphic novels, like Viz, Jump, DC or Marvel or even Dark Horse are latching onto e-books at this time.

    I use Kindle because I've had one since the K2 came out. And then I also have the Amazon Kindle apps on my computer, notebook, netbook, and my
    Xoom. The Kindle is on my bedstand for before I sleep readnig.
