I have never used a Nook or a Kindle before, but I can tell you that all touch-screen devices I have used in the sun weren't very good for reading. I'm sure there are accessories you can buy in order to improve that experience, but I wouldn't know what exactly. Try doing a Google search, you might stumble upon something helpful.

As long as you get one of the black and white e-ink ones. They are awesome in the sun. Just like reading paper. The color tablets will be hard to read.

Unfortunately they are not backlit so you will need some light source. They sell little clip on lights.

I have to agree with Rugaby. If you own a iPhone or iPad, you won't probably like the kindle or nook. I hate the kindle. The way it's pages turn. The flash of on and off. The girl that sits next to me in lunch always has hers and it annoys the heck out of me! Done reading the page. Flashes off then on...

But, it's easier on the eyes!
