Linked: The Nook and the Places of Books

Tim Carmody has got this thoughtful little piece over at Snarkmarket on Barnes & Noble’s strategy with the Nook. Apparently, you can read any book for free in any B&N store in the world:

They say: yes, you can use your Nook any­where — but the very best place to use it is in one of our stores. What’s more: as long as you’re in the store, you can read as much of as many books as you want. Just like if you were flip­ping the pages. That’s huge!

Tim thinks this is B&N’s way of leveraging their physical store presence over the Kindle. I think I’ve just found the new libraries of the 21st century.
