NOOKstudy Announced

Barnes and Noble announced today the release of NOOKstudy - an application that is Free and works on both PCs and Macs. For full details, see the press release which says in part, "NOOKstudy lets students view multiple books and sources at once and offers access to complementary content (e.g. toolsets, reference materials, etc.), as well as the unprecedented ability to highlight and take notes that are searchable and customizable."

A reviewer in ZDNet concluded, "if NOOKstudy succeeds in college, hopefully we will eventually see it roll out in high schools too." What do you think? Are you interested in giving it a try? I would really like the opportunity to play with it and see how it works with textbooks and other reading materials.
