Barnes & Noble claims 25% of US e-book market share

CNet picks up on another point brought up Barnes & Noble’s third quarter earnings report that I mentioned the other day. According to this report, the Nook now accounts for a 25% share of the e-book market in the US.
Barnes & Noble did not cite any figures, so it is unclear whether it is counting by revenue or number of titles sold. But if the report can be taken at face value, Barnes & Noble is not in as much danger of becoming an e-book also-ran as some have feared in the past. 25% is a respectable figure for a market that large.
