Best Buy now selling that Barnes and Noble Nook e-reader.Best Buy now selling that Barnes and Noble Nook e-reader.

This should certainly ramp up the potential exposure that The Nook receives with these added purchase locations. Although, I'm not sure if it will really help as most Best Buy locations are also selling Apple's iPad. Side by side, The Nook looks a little shabby at it's current price tag.

Barnes & Noble offers up consolation gift for those who won't receive their Nook by Christmas.Barnes & Noble offers up consolation gift for those who won't receive their Nook by Christmas.

He guesses the company will miss shipment on about 2% to 4% of the devices, adding up to $100,000 to $200,000 worth of gift certificates. That’s store credits and not cash, so Barnes & Noble will no doubt recoup some of that investment.

Unfortunately, we, the salivating public, might be afflicted with a little holiday disease of our own: Sucker Syndrome. Every one of the Nook’s vaunted distinctions comes fraught with buzz kill footnotes.

Seven reasons as to why e-readers make great gifts this year.Seven reasons as to why e-readers make great gifts this year.

There are already a sea of Kindles on my morning commute into the city on a daily basis. Go ahead, be part of the 'in' crowd and buy yourself an ereader. I'll pull out an actual book and remain an outcast. Mwa ha ha!

Five things that will make you want the new Barnes & Noble E-Reader.Five things that will make you want the new Barnes & Noble E-Reader.

I'm not in the market for an e-reader gadget but this thing looks really cool and it's way more attractive than Amazon's Kindle in terms of aesthetics. Overall it's a very surprising and pleasant effort from the folks at Barnes and Noble - and the price ain't too shabby either. Who wants to share some books with me?
