There’s good reasons why B&N is getting into the ebook reader market.
1. The core of B&B is as a book seller.
2. Amazon is also selling books and they have Kindle.
FYI, what makes both nook and kindle (and sony’s ebook reader for that matter) special is that ebooks are delivered in the epub format.
