E-reader coming soon from Barnes and Noble?

Barnes and Noble is set to make history at a "major event" in New York City next week. And even though the invitation doesn't offer any hints of what's coming, many expect that it will be a book reader of its own, according to a post on CNET.

It would only make sense that B&N, which launched its own book-reading software back in July, would be eyeing an electronic book reader to rivals Amazon and Sony.

The Wall Street Journal reported last week that the company was working on its own reader. It has already struck deals to serve as the digital bookstore for e-readers made by other companies, such as Plastic Logic, CNET reported.

The announcement will be made Oct. 20, two days before Microsoft arrives in New York to formally announce Windows 7.
