Barnes & Noble appears to be pretty pleased with sales following the release of the Nook Color in November. So far, the mega-book retailer has sold over 650,000 digital periodical subscriptions.
That figure "exceeds expectations" for B&N - although we don't know exactly what that is relative too in terms of time span and overall sales. Some of the most popular digital glossies have been Us Weekly, Cosmopolitan, National Geographic, Maxim, O, the Oprah Magazine, Food Network Magazine, and Shape. Top-selling newspapers include USA TODAY, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
You might remember that I bought the Wi-Fi-only, grayscale Nook on Black Friday. That ended up going to my mother as a Christmas gift as I bought the Nook Color for myself - mainly for the reason of downloading and viewing magazines. I wasn't planning on picking up any digital subscriptions, but I have to admit that the ease of buying from the NOOKnewsstand led to some more monthlies for myself.
Do you have a Nook Color? And if so, have you bought a digital subscription?
