The Nook Touch started shipping last Wednesday, and by Sunday someone had hacked it and installed Angry Birds Seasons. it doesn't run well, but it is working.
This right here was why I wanted a Nook Touch. It's running Android v2.1 underneath, so once it's been hacked it's going to be a 6" Android tablet. I wanted to load the Kindle and other reading apps. That would have been cool.

"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."
