Season’s Savings! nook From Barnes & Noble

A few years ago everyone went Kindle-crazy on Amazon, but we predict 2010 is the year of nook. The Barnes & Noble e-reader shares a lot of the same features with its predecessor (ink-like print, room for 1,500 books, and 3G wireless coverage), but nook steps up the digital reading game.

When I saw the advert for the event in my local B&N last week, I thought the panel would make for a good piece of reportage for The Frisky. Yet, it would also have been something I’d have considered going to on my own if only to see Gloria Steinem, a woman I’m proud to call a fellow graduate of my Smith College, and who also spoke at my graduation in 2007, delivering what was surely the greatest commencement speech a young woman could hear.
