Barnes & Noble has announced Nook for Web, a way to read Nook books on your home computer or any Internet-enabled device.
Barnes & Noble just fired the latest salvo in the e-book war with the announcement of Nook for Web. So what is it? Basically it’s an e-reader experience in a web browser. You can sample and read Nook books on any PC or Mac without the need to sign in or download any software — you don’t even need a Nook account.
If you already have a Nook device then you can access your collection and pick up where you left off with a book in your browser, although you will have to sign in to My Nook if you want to do that.
It works with Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox and Safari but there’s one glaring omission — no support for tablets or smartphones just yet. CLICK HERE to read the full article.
