Mike Cane posted this over on his new blog. I disagree with him on whether you should get a Nook, but he has a point. The head of B&N doesn't use his own product. He won't even lie and say he does. That does not inspire confidence in the survival of B&N.
“If this was a Nook,” Riggio said as he flipped through the pages of The Count of Monte Cristo, “I just look at is as, well, here are the pages, and we magically erase the pages and another book appears.” As a business strategy, he was wagering that this convenience would inspire readers to spend more. But personally, Riggio remains unswayed. He doesn’t use his own Nook. “I like to hold the book instead of the device,” he said. “I would rather own multiple books than a single book that carries everything.”
