Should my next eReader be a kindle touch or a nook touch?

I've happily been a nook classic owner for over a year now, but I'm sick of having to recharge frequently so I'm thinking of buying a new eInk reader.
I'm not sure whether I should buy the new nook or the kindle, though. The devices are nearly identical, at around the same price point, but there are several mitigating factors:
- I have a large library of nook DRMed epubs. Like, several hundred books. I'm pretty certain those could be converted, but I imagine it would be a bit of a pain, right?
- I'm a book reviewer, and I frequently receive books for review in .epub format. Would owning a kindle make reading these onerous/annoying?
- I have an amazon prime account. The new lending option sounds dang good.
- I also really liked my 3g on my nook classic. It's no longer available with the new nook. It is available for a bit more money on the kindle. Buying books on long car rides was nice.
I'm a bit unsure of how to weigh all of the above. Anyone here have experience dealing with converting epubs for kindle, or converting a nook library, or would just generally be able to offer some guidance?
(iPad etc is not an option. I want an eInk device with a really long battery life.)
