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.
