I have a NOOK Color and a couple of my friends (one is my friend Beth from the Kenosha Coupon Queens) have the Kindle Fire. We all love our eReaders. :)
I have never used a Kindle Fire so I had to ask a friend about the perks. She mentioned that the Kindle seems to be more game friendly (she is in a household with a NOOK Color and a Kindle, one is hers and one is her hubby's). Both are WiFi accessible and will keep a long charge. My Nook can go weeks without having to be charged depending on how much I use it.
I use my NOOK Color everyday, I read before bed and take it with me just about everywhere. I really like that the screen is so bright, I am able to read while Mr. Betsy is snoozing without having to have the light on. I also really like that I can simply call a Barnes and Noble or go into a store if I have a question.
The NOOK and the Kindle both have their own benefits and they each have good and decent deals on eBooks and free books.
Kindle Fire, Full Color 7" Multi-touch Display, Wi-Fi$199
NOOK Color $169
