Question about

Kindle 2 or Nook 3G

I want to get an eReader. I just don't know which one to purchase. They both look nice and have their respective features. I'm going on a trip so no wi-fi, and I want internet access. The only way would would be to use the Kindle with 3G. I want to get the device with the most non-fiction books like history.

Well you sort of answered that question then. But the internet on the Kindle is horrendous so don't expect any sort of real usability out of an e-ink display for the web. Personally I wouldn't bother and you are looking at the wrong type of device.

The term "most books" is hard to define as well. Does the Amazon store have more books then the B&N store? Yeah, usually. This isn't scientific, but a quick search says Amazon has 417,650 Non-fiction books (117,000 which are history) and B&N says 17,399. There is no way to know what is actually in those numbers though and I wouldn't forget that you can add books purchased from other ebook stores (Kobo/Borders,, Sony,etc) onto the Nook that you cannot put (easily, sometimes legally) onto the Kindle.

The only thing I would suggest is find a handful of books you are interested in and do a search on the stores and see what comes up.

By browser I mean something, that I can use to look up something I don't understand.
The biggest thing that is going against me is the browser on the nook needs wifi where as the nook doesn't.
