Nook For Web Released

Via The Wall Street Journal:

Ever find yourself without an eReader or actual book and really want to read something? Well, me neither—but if you ever did, Nook has the answer. With the announcement of their new Nook program this morning, you can open any book in your Nook library on any computer (PC or Mac) and start reading right where you left off—and it'll work with Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. Plus, it updates your progress instantly so when you're done, you can pick right back up on your Nook or Nook mobile app.

"Nook for Web makes it easier than ever for anyone—from Nook customers to those experiencing digital content for the first time—to access and read books online," Barnes & Noble Digital Products President Jamie Iannone said.

And to get you in the mood, B&N is offering six of their bestselling books free for the next week. None of them are any good, but it's still a nice gesture.

This isn't really new though is it?  Just new for the Nook.  Way to finally keep up with everyone else B&N!

So it's just web stuff?  I've already been reading things on my Nook app on my phone, jumped to  my reader and it went right to the page I was on.  Then I went to another device and it went to the right page and so and so forth.  

I don't know that I ever tried going through a browser for this stuff, but I assumed I could have if I wanted to.

The only books I've ever wanted to read that were Nook-exclusive were Colleen Houck's 'Tiger's Curse' series (which actually launched as an indie book on the Kindle, interestingly, but is no longer available). I read them on my boyfriend's iPad using the Nook app instead.

But now that I have my own Nook-app'd tablet I'd be curious to hear if there are other Nook exclusives worth reading. B&N doesn't do a very good job of separating those out for browsing.
