Amazon's Kindle apparently blew away last year's Black Friday sales figures.
This year's most sought-after holiday gifts include the iPhone 4S and iPad 2, according to one survey.
Kindle owners envious of their Nook- or Sony Reader-carrying friends can rest easy now knowing that their e-readers, too, can rent library e-books.
More adults in the U.S. own eReaders than tablets like the iPad 2, according to the Pew Research Center. The number of eReader owners has doubled in the past 6 months since November.
The Nook's starting to look a little more like a tablet and a little less like an e-reader, thanks to a new update. With its low price tag it may be the perfect device for seniors who are looking for an e-reader with a bit more functionality.
While many of its physical bookstores may be closing, the ereader associated with Borders Books will not be affected, according to its maker, Kobo Inc.
