Why B&N called it the Nook: Maybe because they’re Dr. Seuss fans

Maybe I’m just hopelessly naïve, but not only does the Book Nook in my hometown represent my earliest childhood memory of a bookstore, but I also have a two-year old in my house. So naturally the first thing that came to my mind was Dr. Seuss:
We took a look.
We saw a Nook.
On his head he had a hook.
On his head he had a book …
(I didn’t have to Google that quote, I’ll have you know. No, I have the entirety of One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish memorized.)
Think the Marketing folks in at B & N are big Seuss fans?
