B&N introduced the nook last October and expected to sell the device online and through its stores during the holiday shopping season, but B&N was unable to keep up with demand, and had to delay shipping the device to online customers for weeks and nook was only able to stock some stores with demonstration-only models.

B&N announced on Monday in the company blog that the nook is available online and would be available in most company’s stores by mid-week.

B&N’s failure to meet demand for the nook last year. B&N was able to ship nooks in time to those people who ordered the device before Nov. 20, but other customers had to wait as long as February to receive the device.

Besides delays in shipments, nook buyers also had to deal with software bugs and slow response times. B&N in December released its first software update for the nook to fix some of the performance problems.
