When I ordered my Nook Online about 10 days ago I received an email from B&N that said my Nook would shipped out on the 12th and I should receive it about 2 days after that. So I didn't expect to receive my Nook for about 2 weeks. The day after I ordered I received a 2nd email informing me that my Nook was shipped that day. I received it the following day, 2 days after ordering. What a surprise that was. The nearest B&N to me is about 45 miles. That's 90 miles round-trip. I only get about 19 MPG so it wasn't worth the time and expense to pick one up at B&N. Good luck with your Nook. I love mine.
