Rumor has it that Barnes and Noble is planning to give up direct production of the Nook. Microsoft might take it over, or a breakaway child-company.
The firesale on Nooks seems to lend credence to this rumor. The upside though is that you can get Nooks at incredible prices right now
Wouldn’t that make a great Father’s Day Present for dad or hubby? Hehehe. My husband got his three days ago, a little early! (He is the nook fanatic, and I’m the kindle girl.) I also bought him Daddy’s Little Princess… sequel to the equally poignant yet side-splittingly hilarious Vader and Son.
