Kindle or Nook: Does it matter which files they support?

I'm considering getting an ebook reader, and I'm trying to decide between the Kindle and the Nook. If I get a Kindle, am I leashing myself to the Amazon store? If I get a Nook, could I buy books from other stores or borrow ebooks from my library?

For me, buying an ebook reader is a long-term investment, and I don't want to spend a lot of money on a reader and ebooks and then find myself in some proprietary prison in a few years.
Thanks for your help!
