Impressive isn't it.

The original article says nothing about 3 million in sales. Barnes and Noble had 3 million Nooks delivered from their manufacturer. And the Crave article believes that is 50% of the non-iPad market-which means the Xoom and the Tab, basically.

That is really amazing when you take into account the short period they have been on the market. I bet there will be some who will try and say..that B&N have not sold that many they are just hiding them out the back :-)

I returned 3 due to dead pixels before I found a good one. Then returned it because the reading on an LCD was less than stellar.

less than steller maybe for you but I was actually pleasently surprised at how much I enjoy reading on it.

I agree.. it is all personal. What is interesting is that I work all day on a computer, but even there if I am going to read something long I print it. My eyes just get to buggy. But we are all different.
The hope here is that B&N will also see a marked increase in book sales due to this otherwise we will see the B&N books store become more of an apple type place.

I hope so too. I would hate to see B&N basically become an internet only store.

I was actually able to read for the first time outdoors yesterday. I was under the train station canopy so I was well shaded but still afternoon It held up very very well in the shade. I will have no worries there.

poolside or beach that is where I'll be bringing my nook classic

Same here. I take mine out in the afternoon to read while my kids are playing in the front yard. I sit in the shade of the front porch and have no problem whatsoever with reading it.
