Nate Hoffelder has posted for The Digital Reader.com that Barnes & Noble is closing the International Book Store. He continues by speculating what might happen. Will B&N sell their eBook platform? Will they simply eliminate the Nook and its online store completely? Would Nook find a buyer--possibly Microsoft or Kobo?
Thanks for the news, Nate!
ReadersFirst has no stake in the fate of the Nook (or any other individual device), but would like to remind library readers that their Nook devices will continue to work with most library provided eBooks, even if B&N stops all support. If the plug gets pulled, libraries will still be there for you. Ask at your public library for help.
