Mother’s Day Kindle Fire Giveaway ($250) 2017

2017 Mother’s Day Kindle Fire Giveaway ($250 Value)

The price of a Kindle Fire has come way down in the past few years but this giveaway is still valued at $250. That’s plenty of cash to buy a Kindle Fire AND load it full of book. The winner will have their choice of a $250 Gift Card or $250 in Paypal Cash!

I would go for the Amazon Gift Card. You can get a LOT of books for that amount of money. I could upgrade my kindle too. Which would you rather have?

Thanks to this awesome group of authors, bloggers and publishers for making this giveaway possible.

Nook Tablet v. Kindle Fire: Which Should You Buy This Holiday Season?

Nook Tablet v. Kindle Fire: Which Should You Buy This Holiday Season?

In the saturated tablet market this season, two big names in e-readers are expanding their technology and jumping into the ring with their own tablets: the Nook Tablet and the Kindle Fire. Perhaps you already own a Nook or a Kindle e-reader and you want to expand the technology to get more accessibility and features. Or maybe you are thinking of buying your first tablet and you are attracted by the lower price tag of these models and the authority that they bring with their e-reader reputations. But how do you choose which is the best? Here are a few things to consider when making the choice between the new Nook Tablet or the Kindle Fire:


Both tablets have a 1 GHz dual-core processor and feature a 7.1″ color display, providing a comparable experience. The Nook Tablet boasts superior battery life: 11.5 hours for reading and 9 hours for video, compared with 8 hours for reading and 7.5 hours for video on the Kindle Fire. Both experience lower battery power when connected to Wi-Fi.

Memory and Storage

The Nook Tablet leads with memory and storage, offering 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage (as well as 32GB of additional storage through an external SD slot). The Kindle Fire, on the other hand, only offers 512 MB of memory and 8GB of storage (with no external SD slot). However, the storage issue isn’t as clear cut as first glance. The Nook Tablet only reserves 1GB of its 16GB for user content, with the rest reserved for content purchased through Barnes & Noble. With the external space, it still offers much more storage than the Kindle Fire. However, another advantage of the Kindle Fire is that it can access Amazon’s cloud storage system, allowing users to store content there.


Both tablets are Wi-Fi capable, making access to the Internet simple anywhere a connection is available. Both allow full access to e-mail and the Web. However, they provide access to different content markets. The Kindle Fire has access to the vast Amazon marketplace (with books, television, movies and more) and its apps, while the Nook Tablet limits its content to the Barnes & Noble catalogue. Amazon has a more extensive selection of apps with more than 10,000, while Barnes & Noble currently has “thousands.”

Amazon also offers services such as Amazon Prime (which offers some free videos and books, as well as free shipping on other products), as well as video downloading services for the Kindle Fire, but there are no comparable services for the Nook Tablet.


Neither tablet has a camera, bluetooth or 3G capability. However, they do offer some extras. For example, the Kindle Fire has a built-in music player and speakers. The Nook Tablet comes with free in-person support at any Barnes & Noble store. Both offer customization options for the desktop. Both sell additional hardware such as a keyboard to personalize your experience. Deciding which of these options is the most important to you can help you decide which tablet is best for you.

The Nook Tablet and the Kindle Fire are comparable in many ways, and the final determining factor for which to buy will depend on which features you value more. The Kindle Fire has a slight price advantage ($199 vs. $249 for the Nook Tablet), but some may find that the additional cost of the Nook Tablet is justified by some of its expanded features. In the end, personal preference will make the decision.
