eBooks Outsell Paper Books On Barnes & Noble's Online Store

Riggio & colleagues better enjoy themselves and get the most out of the moment, now that the Nook Color has been rooted to run Android apps, including Kindle for Android. They could not foresee this? HuffPost: "The New York company said its Nookcolor e-reader, which launched eight weeks before Christmas, was its top-selling gift of the holiday season. Barnes & Noble also said it now sells more digital books than physical books on its Web site. Nearly 1 million e-books were purchased on Christmas Day alone, the company said, with popular titles including James Patterson's Cross Fire and Stieg Larsson's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo." Wow, what great results. But imagine how many more books they would have sold on Christmas day if their servers hadn't crashed.
