Amazon: You can't pee onlineAt right is a sign spotted days ago at a closed Borders in Chicago. There are a lot of fourth-grade-level bathroom jokes I could make, but I won’t. I will agree, though, the sign makes a good argument for the brick-and-mortar bookstores.

In other publishing news, Barnes & Noble is recruiting app developers for its Android-based NOOK Color Reader Tablet. For more information, check out the NOOK Developer blog or register as a developer.

This news comes on the heels of the late-March frenzy inspired the April update for NOOK.

The NOOK Color at a glance:

    Height: 8.1 inches
    Width: 5.0 inches
    Depth: 0.48 inches
    Weight: 15.8 ounces
    Price: $259

 
And that concludes my reporting on eBooks today because my portfolio needs polishing and I have an e-commerce project I need to wrap up.
