Another Unavailable eBook Reader
Nook, eBook Reader, eBook Device - Barnes & Noble
There are some interesting features like being able to loan books to other people, and being able to read your ebooks on your computer.
So far, the Sony eBook Readers are the only mainstream reader available in Canada.
The Sony eBook store claims about 55,000 books versus Amazon's 350,000. Barnes & Noble claims "over one million" but they must be counting all the public domain stuff. I'd be surprised if they have as good a selection as Amazon.
I wonder if you'd get away with shipping a Nook to a friend's US address. The question is whether they'll let you use a Canadian credit card to pay for books (Amazon doesn't).
