A Nook in Every Stocking

Santa and Barnes & Noble will be racing each other down the chimneys this year. Yesterday, Barnes & Noble announced that Nook orders promised by Christmas are indeed “going out on time.”

This follows an earlier announcement that pre-ordered Nooks may, or may not, arrive by Christmas. Here’s the official word from Barnes & Noble:

“We’re happy to report that all customers who pre-ordered nooks and were given a pre-holiday estimated shipping date will be sent their nooks in time to receive them by Christmas. As you know, there’s been an overwhelmingly positive response and unprecedented demand since Barnes & Noble announced its new eBook reader on October 20th. Customer demand continues to be strong and new orders will be fulfilled beginning February 1, 2010.”

Not sure about that “overwhelmingly positive response,” but happy Nooking.
