A number of us jumped in and ordered a Nook as soon as the Pre-order site was up. It makes sense. Not only does the Nook look to solve some of the Kindle’s many usability issues thanks to its color touchscreen, but the Nook will let us access the eBook libraries we have amassed over the years. (Just how many eReader formatted books do you have again Judie??)
As it is, all of us will have to wait until the end of November before getting our hands on a Nook. If you just decided to jump in, however, the wait will be a bit longer.
It seems demand has been high enough that, starting today, new Nook orders will not be shipping until December 7th. As the email we received notes:
We expect the demand to continue to be heavy through the holiday season, and we are operating strictly on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Translation, each day you spend trying to make your mind up is going to mean one, two or many more days of waiting.
