Barnes and Noble ebooks

Downloaded their ebook reader to try today. Verdict: Unimpressed. Mobipocket is better. I didn't bother with their reader for the iPhone. What turns me off are the prices. For many less popular titles their prices are way beyond what is offering. E.g., Snowball is $28.00 but you can get it for $9.99 at

Barnes and Noble would have to try harder to create a more compelling case to sell ebooks. They are probably more interested in making sales from their walk in customers.
