I am sad that the Nook isn't doing too well these days. I really don't understand it... why people don't just love the Nook and use the Kindle or other reading devices. I love that I am able to go into a store and browse around and look at all the features .. plus have someone there to help me when I can't figure the darn thing out. I have always found the staff nice and friendly. The stores have made the Nook section fun... even though they are phasing out the Nook Color (which is the one I own) the Nook HD Tablet is a great piece of work.
I am sad to see what has been going on with the Nook lately. Barnes and Noble has added Google Play to their Tablets which I think is a move in a good direction. I can't play that on mine though since I have the outdated Nook Color. I own an iPad though so I see no need to upgrade my Nook. That is one of the problems I think the ereader market is having. Microsoft was rumored to buy Nook from Barnes and Nobles but it looks like that fell through.
The Nook is fun... but I am sure all ereaders are. I've been reading that the ebook market is slowly losing sales. I don't always read ebooks. I still love to have a real book in my hands. It is so hard to get new ebooks at the library so I have to have real books because of this. I wish there was more access for libraries to have new ebooks.
What about you? What do you think of the Nook going away?
EDIT: June 25th.. Barnes and Nobles have confirmed it will no longer sell Nook Color
