Nook e-reader is Barnes & Noble's best-selling item, ever Barnes & Noble has followed Amazon's recent Kindle announcement by claiming that the Nook e-reader is their best-selling item, ever, just like the Kindle is for Amazon.
The Nook sells for $149, and the company recently released the Nook Color for $250.

Over the holiday season, the Nook Color was the best-selling gift, adds the company.

Furthermore, the company says digital books have begun to outsell physical book purchases, with 1 million digital books being sold on Christmas Day, alone.

Amazon made a similar announcement in July.

Neither company has released concrete sales figures on their e-reader devices.

Damn, I was hoping my autobiography, Tales of a Troll would get #1. If you're not first you're last.

Isn't that their only item?

@NHS2008, i think when they refer to their best selling item, i also include all the books sold there. For example, Harry Potter books sold by Barnes and Nobles would count. But the figures for the Nook exceed any of the sales for any individual Harry Potter book.

I was surprised by this too, but after doing research, it seems that everyone is buying this to either actually use it for e-book reading, or root the Nook Color and use it as a cheap and strong andriod tablet.

Wow...and here I figured that coffee was their best selling item.
