Nook Gets the Ax

Bye Bye NookBad news for Nook owners!  On Monday, Barnes & Noble announced it will be speeding up its digital retreat from its experimental venture to compete against Amazon’s Kindle with the Nook ereader.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise since Barnes & Noble’s Nook ereader captures only 8% of the market. In comparison, Amazon Kindle commands 74% of all US ebook purchases and 71% of total dollars spent on ebooks in the US’

It’s anyone’s guess when we will hear about more Barnes & Nobles store closings.  The days of roaming the book store isles for the latest books are almost gone.   Now it’s visit www.amazon.com, search a book, read the comments on what others think about that particular book and you can either click download and have a digital copy available instantly or in two days you can receive a hard copy*. (*If you are an Amazon Prime member and want to hold an actual hardcover or softcover book.)

Customers have till Tuesday, March 15 to save their purchased content.  Books and apps currently saved in the Nook library will still be available to read but no longer supported.  So if you have a problem, too bad.

Customers will not be able to rent or purchase video content from the NOOK video store after March 15, which will be closed down completely the end of April. If customers want to keep the content they’ve already purchased, the need to transfer content to other providers.

You can learn more about the Barnes & Noble decision and where to open accounts to keep current content on your Nook in a blog post, B&N nukes the NOOK with a 15 March deadline for customers to save content by Stuart Lauchlan.

Don’t delay, deadline to take care of all this is Tuesday, March 15, 2016.
