But as the largest brick-and-mortar bookseller in the US has their own e-Reader, the Nook, they have no incentive to put other models in-store. That damned lock-in keeps variety out of the bookstore and out of the question.

Oops. I think it was Target the person in a thread I was reading (looking at impressions of a booklight) was talking about. Sorry!

I haven't been to any electronics retailers lately so I can't say if our equivalent (Currys or Comet) is any better.
