Bought one of these a couple weeks ago for my nook color. Couldn’t bring myself to spend the $40 Best Buy wanted for a case. It’s not super-fancy I guess, but works just fine for me, and costs a lot less than what I’m seeing in stores.

Will this work with a nook tablet?

Sold. It should work fine for the Tablet, it's the same size as the Color.

I have this case, or one that looks EXACTLY like it, for my Nook Color (which is running CM7). I paid $14.99 (free shipping) and think it was worth it.

The case works well enough though it covers (and muffles) the Nook's speaker, but not horribly so.

The elastic strip on the top right tends to depress the volume down button, so I originally put a 1/4" strip cut from a fairly thick business card between the Nook and the elastic, though I later realized that putting the Nook in upside down is simpler and works just as well.

The case does not cover the corners of the Nook, so if you drop it so that it lands vertically on a corner, said corner of the Nook itself will hit the ground.

As @misry states above, the Nook Tablet is the same size as the Color, so it will fit without a problem.

All in all, I'd say this is a great buy for $5.51.

Will this only work for nook and nook color? Looking for a cover for nook simple touch.

Just got one yesterday. It fits my tablet. Looks very professional.

@lauriewny: I have a feeling that it's going to be a tad too big for the touch. I ordered one for my wife's nook (can't beat the price). If it ships before the deal is dead, I'll let you know, maybe include some pics.

@lauriewny: UPDATE: just received the case last night. The Nook Touch fits nicely in the bottom, but the two elastic straps at the top don't come close to holding it in. Overall, we found it great since we'll mostly be using it around the house and throwing it in a backpack on trips. For $6 it was worth it, but do note that it doesn't technically 'fit' the Touch.
