Nook - Book Store Enters the eBook Game

Yet another e-book article, a follow-up to yesterday's e-publishing article: Nook, the Barnes & Noble ebook reader, has just hit the market...Amazon Kindle's big competitor. And it comes with some nice features, for around $250 USD you get enough memory to hold about 1,500 books, supports the open e-Pub standard, and it's running Android, Google's mobile OS.

With Barnes & Noble in the ebook reader game, school libraries and educators will have to seriously consider the very real market penetration of this technology and how to integrate it into class activities.
