    NOOK Newsstand

      I just received my NOOKcolor. I noticed online that there are magazines advertised on the website as being part of the NOOK newsstand, but when I go to shop on my NOOKcolor some of those magazines are not available. Are those magazines shown on the website just previews of what is to come?

       

      Thank you.

          My thought is perhaps there is some lag between what the website shows and what the shop are of the nook shows.  It wasn't till very recently that the nook magazine section showed 40mags and reportedly soon it will be up to 70.  I have my eye on at least one magazine right now (well more, but one for certain) and am hopeful that shortly a couple more of my favorites will be added.

           

          I'm only putting out my opinion on this and hope someone who knows for sure can answer.

            I had recently posted on the Newsstand board that this is my biggest disappointment - that we cannot read the nice, colorful magazines on our PC. I have the original Nook and no money for a NookColor right now, but would love to downsize my paper magazines by reading many of them on my PC. 

             

            However, we must remember that B&N is looking to make a profit... and selling more Nookcolors is what they're really trying to do.  People like me who would subscribe to the magazines to read them on PC are making them dollars, but not as much as if I were forced to buy the Nookcolor, right?  Plus, this might be a limitation that the magazine publishers are forcing on B&N.  So I'm trying to keep a good frame of mind about it......!
