Books, books and more books

So what should I get? Kindle, B&N Nook, Sony eReader....iPad?
When we sold the house I had to get rid of many books. Actually gave away 7 cartons to the local library. You see, books don't travel well, so I was only able to move a large container full of them.
But now the collection is inching its way back up. My "policy" of donating one book for every book I buy went away.
So now I have a bookcase in my office, one in the sitting room, two out on the porch. And a few boxes in the garage.

So maybe it's time for an eReader. My sis loves the one we bought her.

My dilemma is which one?
I can get the iPad and download the free Kindle app for it. My wife loves her iPad, it's small, and does so much more. But it's also $500+. And I can download the Kindle app for my MacBook.

As for the other 3, I order mostly from Amazon, so the Kindle looks like the best choice between the readers. But is the Nook better? What about battery life?

Anyone have any opinions? I'd love to hear what Nook users and Kindle users have to say
