Nook May Be Expanding Internationally, But Barnes & Noble Stores Aren't

Barnes & Noble store

At a Nook Developers Workshop in London today, Barnes & Noble (NYSE: BKS) said it won’t be opening stores outside the U.S., but did not offer further details about the Nook’s expansion abroad even as it courted European app developers.

Barnes & Noble is reportedly partnering with UK bookstore chain Waterstones to sell the Nook, though the company hasn’t confirmed it.

Apps are Barnes & Noble’s fastest-growing content area and the company wants more of them — hence the developers workshop taking place today as part of a Mobile Monday London panel. I am following the news from the workshop via Twitter. Attendees appear (understandably) frustrated by the fact that Barnes & Noble is not answering questions about international expansion even as the company invites them to create apps for the platform.
