Well that's pretty cool!! I have a B&N 45 miles away, we go there whenever we're in that town. Yesterday was a beautiful day here, so we took the top down on my Tracker and headed out.
Walked into B&N and was greeted with a huge nook display and a very friendly woman offering oatmeal cookie samples. Took her about five seconds to figure out that I probably knew more about the device than she did; and to establish that my suspicion was correct: B&N sales people have a lot in common with mushrooms - corporate feeds them a line of bull**** and keeps them in the dark!
That's not to say the experience was bad mind you... she was a darn good salesperson and if I wasn't waiting to see if nook comes up with the new Pearl screens, I might well have walked out with a nook yesterday, just due to her.
