There’s a lot of news this week, so we’re going to dive right in.
nook Demo Units Arrive: First, we’re happy to report that nook demo units are in (or arriving in) all Barnes & Noble stores, and will be available for customer viewing beginning today. Use the nook store locator to get information about the stores near you. Please, no pushing!
First Shipments: The first customers to pre-order nook are already receiving shipping confirmations and should expect delivery within the next day or two. More will go out through the week, so we expect to see many more happy nook owners in the days ahead.
Also, we expect to have more information for people with Dec. 7 ship dates later today.
Customers with an original expected ship date of Dec. 7 are getting an email tonight indicating that their nooks will arrive by Dec. 16. We appreciate your patience as we fulfill orders in the order in which they were received.
eNewspapers and eMagazines: Some of our initial ePeriodicals have started appearing on the site. What you’re seeing today is just the beginning. Many more titles are coming in the days and weeks ahead, with prominent additions expected this week.
More on the Way: Some features are still making their way through the release process. Others (like browsing complete eBooks in Barnes & Noble stores before you buy them) are coming after the new year. We’re expecting to have in-store inventory available for purchase after the new year as well; we’ll provide details as we have them.
We’re excited for customers to see a demo of nook in our stores and for the first customers to experience eReading on nook. Please remember that nooks ordered today (here or through your local Barnes & Noble store) are expected to ship Jan. 15. If your nook’s a gift, there’s still time to get the special Holiday Certificate that you can wrap as a place-holder.
Thanks, everyone. And happy eReading!
