e-book revolution in the UK - Update

An update on yesterday's blog: 

Barnes and Noble bringing the Nook to the UK. 

Twitter is buzzing today with the news in The Bookseller that three more retailers have signed up with Barnes and Noble to sell the Nook in the UK. Argos, Foyles and Blackwell's will sell the Nook from October in addition to the recent  first signing of John Lewis.
As we all have different shopping habits, this mix of retailers, offers something for everyone. 
As I mentioned yesterday, Barnes and Noble, who is a major US bookstore, will also be offering UK consumers direct purchase of the Nook and content (e-books) from a new online shopfront www.nook.co.uk.
So with Waterstones about to sell Kindles (plus content?), WHSmith already selling Kobo with access to Kobo e-books from the WHSmith e-bookshop, and now the advent of the Nook, things are looking brighter.
Are YOU ready for the e-book revolution about to hit the high street? Time to start your list for Santa?
