Looks like I'm standing (laying on the bed) corrected!
The Borders in my area shut down, sadly. And my BBs had the Sony on display, but nothing else... oh, maybe the Nook too, but like on a bottom shelf, and not for demo IIRC. Of course, there are much larger BBs than the ones in my area. I sure hope the prevalence of eReaders in stores becomes more prominent, even in the smaller stores, as that's good all-around for the industry!
BTW, I'm not counting the iPad or any other of that ilk because (a) it's not a dedicated
eReader, and (b) it uses LCD... which, I admit, is snobbery on my part -- but snobbery in a good way!
