Today, 12/06/2011, Overstock.com announced they have entered into an exclusive parnership with Barnes & Noble to sell eBooks through Barne’s & Noble’s Nook Store. This will allow Overstock.com visitors to purchase digital versions of hardcover and paperback books through the Barnes & Noble Nook Store. Do you need something to read digital books with, but you don’t have an eReader? No problem… Overstock.com is also offering certified pre-owned Nook Color eReaders for only $149.00 and that’s a great deal! A new Nook Color retails for $199.00 (plus appropriate taxes).
The investments and promotions Barnes & Noble made to keep their Nooks competitive in the marketplace caused the bookseller to experience a surprising loss this quarter. Personally, I believe Barnes & Noble will spring right back next quarter. I’m not a financial advisor or a stock market expert, but I believe B&N has a great management team at the helm of their company and they’re steering their ship in the right direction.
