I also am a little disappointed that the Triangle Town Center location doesn't have anything yet. However, a couple months ago, the one in Cary had covers and stuff...this was before the nooks were even available in stores, so they should still have stuff. Definitely worth a trip over there, they had quite a few to choose from, and all of them out so you could hold them and stuff before you bought one.

I purchased my Nook in Bridgewater, NJ and they had a HUGE selection of covers, sleeves, etc. I purchased a really nice cover called "industriell".
It's actually this one:
Check out the reviews.

Our little nooks love beaming things from the mothership.
Open the pod-bay doors Hal.
I think you're right. The first time I took it to a B&N it hooked up to B&N's wifi while I was still in the parking lot. I almost thought I could hear it say, "Mama". It never hooks up so fast and effortlessly to my home wifi.

Actually I find mine hooks up just as fast if not faster to my Wifi setup. I wonder if most of the B&N are using N. At home I have dual N router and the minute I turn my Nook on to read it connected.
At the B&N it usually takes a few secs to connect when I hit the shop button. Was nice to get the Alice in Wonderland and the Leather Bound Book today also. This was the Huntington LI Store.
Will have to check the Lake Grove as it hasn't work there yet so maybe now it does.

I'm so jealous of the people who have local stores with accessories! The B&N at the Mall of Georgia said not only do they have none right now, they don't know that they will ever have any. They said not every store will carry accessories. I can't believe the Mall of Georgia store wouldn't have them!
