You can get Kindle Fires all over the place. Amazon, Walmart, Staples, Best Buy, Target, Radio Shack, and many, many other retailers all sell them. QVC is owned by Liberty Media which recently invested a fair amount of money into Barnes and Noble so they'll only show B&N e-readers here until that investment has been repaid.

I guess they will not be selling KIndles any time soon if they are investors in Barnes and Noble. I have had such good customer service from Amazon, I think when I DO MAKE UP MY MIND FOR A READER I will stick with the Kindle. And on Amazon, no tax, no shipping.

I don't think there's any chance of seeing Kindles on HSN (owned 32% by Liberty Media) or QVC (owned 100% by Liberty Media.) Liberty Media was going to buy B&N for $1 billion then backed out and instead opted to invest $207 million in B&N stock to help keep B&N alive and get two of their executives on the B&N board. That's why you're seeing Nooks pop up on QVC and HSN. They're looking to push Nooks out there to get back their investment and see what happens with B&N. If B&N is able to survive then Liberty Media is nicely positioned to make a lot of money. If B&N falls then Liberty Media can still take the profit they've made from selling Nooks to offset the $207 million they invested.
