I assumed the concern was with the "under 18" part. Which is probably not really appropriate for this thread, since Nook Kids is obviously targetted at the younger crowd. But I could see being a 16 year old with a job and being rankled by the fact that you can't buy ebooks. I know when I was 16 I was buying paper books and CDs with my own money and without parental supervision. I have no idea what I would do these days. Probably buy prepaid cards and use those rather than a credit card.
