Barnes & Noble E-Book Sales Surpass Real Books

E-books gaining ground. When will this be the preferred way to purchase textbooks?

Just days after Amazon announced that its Kindle e-reader was its best-selling product http://www.mainstreet.com/node/20065 , Barnes & Noble said that its own e-reader, the Nook, had become the company’s biggest best-seller ever. The line of e-readers was buoyed by sales of the latest model, the Nook Color – though like Amazon, it was vague on exact sales figures.

Most interestingly, the company also announced that sales of e-books on its website, BN.com, now exceed sales of print books. While the company again did not release exact sales figures, a press release touted the fact that more than 1 million Nook books were sold on Christmas day alone. Amazon similarly announced earlier this year that its digital book sales  had exceeded sales of hardcover print books.
