E-books are the future of reader it would seem.  They are cheaper to produce, cheaper to distribute.

This revolutionary form of books was first made popular by the Amazon Kindle, and later the B&N Nook.

 

So what happens if you are a company that transcribed a lot of Kindle, and then B&N comes knocking at your door asking them to make those available for them too.

Every book has a small introductory paragraph that mentions the Kindle several times.  Nothing that a quick ctrl+ r can’t fix.  Replace all ‘kindle’ with ‘nook’

And this works almost all the time… unless the book actually uses the word Kindle.  If a book did that… it would read really funny.

 

Like in War and Peace, which now has sentences that read Nook in all hearts the flame of virture.” and “It was as if a light had been Nookd in a carved and painted lantern…”

 

Ooops!

    I’ve got a basic Kindle and I love it. When thinking about whether to buy a nook or a kindle, someone brought up to me that they thought Amazon would be around a lot longer than B&N, which solidified my purchasing decision.
