I’ve been on the road the past few days, and I wanted to get these two big news items on tonight.
The first is that the Nook will be available at Wal-Mart. Will that be enough to help lagging sales?
The second is that Amazon will allow users to lend e-books to other Kindle owners. It looks like it will be similar to the functionality on the Nook. As a Kindle owner, I’ll be able to lend to other Kindle owners for 2 weeks, during which time I won’t be able to access my copy. On the nook, you can only lend a book once, and only if the publisher allows.
