Best Buy will begin selling Barnes & Noble’s NOOK eBook reader starting this Sunday, April 18th. Aside from merely selling the $260 device, Best Buy will also be preloading Barnes & Noble’s free “BN eReader” software on “select PCs (laptops and desktops), netbooks, tablets and smartphones,” according to a recent press release.

You’ll recall that the Nook is similar to Amazon’s Kindle but replaces the keyboard with a small secondary color LCD screen used for browsing content, features a lending mode allowing you to lend a certain book out to a friend for a period of time, and can be used to browse entire books for free whenever you’re inside an actual Barnes & Noble store.
