The software opens up fine once you're past that step, and works well enough with a couple of nifty features (though if you have an Intel Mac, the old B&N Reader app is actually much better at most of the more useful functions).
I should warn you that the Release Notes do say that the textbook-buying function is only available to US and Canada, if that's what you were interested in. But there are ways around that geo-restriction, too.
ETA: Hey, I just went from Zealot to Groupie with this post!
Thanks, I'll do that. I'm on a PC so I think it'll work. Geographic restrictions just make me so angry. Right now I just don't have the strength or time to try to go around them, I have too many things at work and school to worry about. (I presume there's something somewhere here I can look up if the need ever arises? I'd mostly be interested in checking out their library and information science books.)
And yay for Groupie!
