B&N Nooklit Now Shipping

It looks like Barnes & Noble decided to bump the ship date up a couple weeks.

The Nook Glow, which according to the website is supposed to ship 7 May, is coming a lot sooner than expected. B&N is now sending out emails saying the Nook Glow is due to ship today. One of my readers reported getting one, and then just a few minutes ago I got one.

My order is expected to ship out today. That would tend to make last night's visit to see one in a B&N store redundant, but I thought it was worth it. I might not have ordered one without that visit.

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. Make up your bloody mind! First you say you don’t want it, then you have one incoming! Sheesh.

    I just hope QC didn’t suffer in this rush. They don’t want a bunch of YouTubes and posts from people talking about how it’s not worth the extra money.

  2. I preordered the Nook back on April 12th, and expected ship date for me is still May 1. I don’t think that these units are in general shipping early. I think that a select few are receiving theirs early. Could be you pre-ordered the quickest, and it was first come, first serve. Or BN are letting you reviewers have first crack.

    • I only ordered mine this morning, and trust me, B&N corporate is not going to help me get one early. They hate my guts.

      • Yeah that was pretty funny that they wouldn’t have you for their premiere. I learned about that new nook from your website before they even released it, so no matter what BN does you remain on the cutting edge of ereader news!

  3. B&N’s media event was held in a NYC penthouse bedroom. Space was limited. I’m sure many people were not invited.
