Although the Nook has barely left the starting gate in 2009, it's already your favorite eReader of the year! Beating out the Amazon Kindle 2 for the top spot, the Nook's sleek interface, 3G and WiFi connectivity, scrolling touch screen, and storage for an endless supply of titles in its 2GB of memory all make it the leader in portable reading. Running at a virtual tie, the Kindle DX, Sony PRS-700, and Sony's Red PRS-505 take home third place billing.
The Nook has had its share of release and supply setbacks, but that's not stopping you (and yours truly) from getting in line and placing your orders. Unfortunately, Barnes and Noble isn't expecting another shipment out to customers until February, so if you want to get your hands on this year's winner, get your order in now!
