    This is either Awesome or bad. LOL I'm glad it has been so popular actually, but I am surprised they didn't have more units made ahead. Seems like with all the electronics selling out quickly in the last few years, they would learn. But I guess they don't want to be the one company that doesn't sell and is stuck with a ton of extra inventory.

    I am surprised too. I am glad I pre-ordered mine when I did.

    The big question now is will it be available in stores on 11/30 since it is sold out online until after the holidays. Also, if the stores are getting them, how many will be at each one? I just checked CNET news and saw this quote from B&N spokesperson Mary Ellen Keating responding to Nooks being sold out for the Holiday season.

    "After reading our piece, Barnes & Noble spokesperson Mary Ellen Keating told us she hoped folks won't cross the Nook off their holiday lists, which is why the company created a 'holiday gift certificate that can be wrapped and given to the recipient.'

    She also noted that Barnes and Noble is 'on track to ship devices that were preordered prior to today by the holidays,' and that today's update only affects orders made beginning today. Also, she said that Barnes & Noble expects to have a limited stock of devices available in its highest-volume stores during the holiday season."

    My husband thinks it was a mistake not have nooks available for purchase in stores when the roll-out was done.

    I am not so sure...I wonder if this was a planned marketing thing, and also a cautious way to determine demand?

    And look at the furor anticipation has created!

    People want what is rare..."Be the first on your block to own one!"

    Even I am affected by it. If they had just appeared in the store, it would be just another gadget...but now I want one...and I should be immune to my employers strategies, LOL.

    I am thinking I'll get one by next Christmas, when the price has come down, and all the bugs are worked out.

    I was kinda thinking it might be a way to get more folks into the actual stores over the next month or so. Can't get one online, but MAYBE find it at the store - kwim?? I'm just glad mine's coming soon!

    I think a special gift certificate is a brilliant idea!
