The battle between the Kindle and Nook just took another competitive twist.

Refusing to be outdone by Amazon, Barnes & Noble has announced that readers who subscribe to the New York Times via the Nook will receive free, unlimited access to the paper’s site.

Of course, the announcement comes just one week after Kindle subscribers were granted the same deal after the paper’s paywall went active.

And whichever tablet trips your trigger, don’t jump on your e-book reader yet to catch the news on the Times’ site–the feature isn’t currently available.

According to a press release, Nook readers will be notified through e-mail in the coming weeks about how to gain free access to NYTimes.com.

So, Nook or Kindle? Alas, it looks like the Times won’t be the tie-breaker.
