Barnes and Noble e-Reader versus Amazon Kindle for PC

Barnes and Noble e-Reader versus Amazon Kindle for PC

I have both a Barnes and Noble e-reader for PC as well as a Kindle e-reader for PC. I wish I had a Kindle. Once upon a time I wished I had a Barnes and Noble Nook for comparison purposes, but I have to say this is no longer the case. I have an extensive library of Kindle for PC books.

Today the Wall Street Journal announced Barnes and Noble had decided to settle with fellow board member Ron Burkle. The announcement, which the Wall Street Journal said was expected today NEVER happened. Instead the Wall Street Journal issued a statement around 2 pm EDT on August 12, 2010 announcing that the parties had failed to come to a mutually satisfactory deal.
