With its massive library, gorgeous screen, capable writing features, and multiple storage options, Kindle Scribe comes out on top vs. the reMarkable 2. There is simply more value to be had for your dollar.
For work or play?
The big question here is your use case. Are you looking for a stellar digital notebook that lets you easily jot down ideas and drawings, organize them, and then search them using optical character recognition (OCR)? Then the reMarkable 2 is your workhorse.
Are you looking for fairly solid (if a bit clunky) note taking capabilities, and exceptional reading experience, access to your entire Kindle library, and wide file support? Then it's a no-brainer: you want the Kindle Scribe.

There really isn't a marked difference in specs here, so that shouldn't be what you base your decision upon. The real clincher is the writing technology. The writing experience on the reMarkable 2 is simply unmatched by the Kindle Scribe.
Where Kindle beats reMarkable is in the other categories: screen (great lighting), reading, library connectivity, and file support.
Read till you're full and keep reading
For the casual user
If you're not looking for a productivity powerhouse that feels like real paper to write on, then go with the Kindle Scribe. You can access your whole Kindle library, the screen is well-lit and sharp, and it has exceptional battery life.
Jot that down
Get to work
What reMarkable 2 gets very right is its writing technology, which is exceptional, especially with built-in OCR for searching back through your notes. You can easily mark up documents on the go as well, though file support is fairly limited compared to the Kindle Scribe.
That being said, it's still a top-tier e-ink tablet and is ideal for business use.
