The Kindle also comes in several flavors. There's a larger one, with an 8.9 inch screen. There are also versions with cellular capabilities. The only choice you get with the Nook tablet is the color of the frame. Only the 8.9-inch Kindles have rear cameras, though -- at 8 megapixels.
Although you can't set up separate profiles for others in your family, you can enable a kids mode with restrictions on use.
AND THE REST:
I still believe dedicated e-readers are better for reading. Hiding the status bar and turning on Quiet Time can help block distractions, but with e-readers, you don't have distractions to begin with. The Kindle Paperwhite is the best of the e-readers I've tried.
A tablet is good if you want to do more than reading and don't want to carry multiple devices. I don't think you'll want to buy either the Nook or the Kindle Fire simply because it's a reading-centric tablet. You'd want them because they are good tablets.
But they are not the only good tablets out there.
