Amazon, B&N are in the middle of an e-reader price war TODAY

I wasn't planning to do another BFS post, but one of my readers pointed out that B&N are selling refurbished Nook Wifi ereaders for $79. You can find them on Ebay, and they come with the standard 1 year warranty.

I think I'm seeing a pattern here.

The Nook shows up in a Best Buy advert for $99. Amazon responded by offering refurbished K2 ereaders (tomorrow) for $89. B&N shoots back with the $79 Nook Wifi (they only started selling it 3 hours ago).

I was about to call this as the best Black Friday sale, but now I would bet dollars to donuts that Amazon will announce a better sale some time today.

Let's see what happens.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. They delisted the $79.99 refurb, but have re-listed it at $99.99 (and the WiFi + 3G model for $119.99) for 26 more days. (Or at least until the supply runs out.)
