Millions of Nooks Means More E-books

The game is changing so fast.

Barnes and Noble came out with their colour (that’s color for Americans) version of the Nook last week, and it’ll sell for $10 less than last year’s nook.  I’m betting graphic novel  and children’s book authors are going to be happy.

Now this isn’t a tablet like the ipad.  It’s a dedicated e-reader even though it has some extra bling like very fast web browsing.

What’s really amazing is that Barnes and Noble have already sold a million of the old version of the Nook and expect to sell a million of this version.

By New Year’s there are going to be literally millions of people with e-readers looking for content.  What an opportunity!

The downside is I haven’t found a way to sell through B&N yet, but I’m looking.  As traditional book retailers get more and more like Amazon, I’m willing to bet they open their distribution up too.

Must edit faster.  Must write faster.

Hey, Mike,

so how does this work? Do people buy the stories to read online? Or are they printed on demand?

Good luck. Have been enjoying your blog.

    Hey Kim:
    You don’t need a Kindle, but you do need to download the Kindle Reader software onto your computer or i-phone or any phone with Google’s Android operating system. It’s free. Then you can buy the stories and they automatically download onto your computer. I’ve got so much to say that I just realized this is a post.
