What's new in the (digital) reading world

Nook Publisher's Weekly reports that after announcing it would sell the Barnes & Noble Nook at its stores, Walmart will also begin selling the Kobo wireless e-reader next week at 2,500 stores.

There's a new rumor afoot about the Nook, too: Tech site CrunchGear reports whisperings that next week B&N will announce a full-color, 7-inch screen Nook that will sell for $250. The Nook Color would allegedly run Android. Is it true? Hard to say, but as crunchgear points out, a new Nook could help B&N combat cheaper e-readers.

Meanwhile, Amazon reports that its newest generation of Kindles is the fastest-selling yet, according to PW. The number of e-books available at the Kindle store rose to 720,000 in the last quarter. Amazon also reported that sales of digital and print books grew in the third quarter.
