I took the back off the Nook and disconnected the battery.
I removed the tape on the battery on three sides
I drilled a hole.
I chamfered the inside edges
I glued a round 1/4-20 T nut in the hole using JB Weld epoxy.
I used a bolt and an old plastic lid with a hole in it to pull it tight for drying.
I reassembled the Nook.
The next morning I removed the bolt.

Now I have a Nook that mounts on those little bendy camera tripods.
I can also just stick in a 1/4-20 2.5" bolt as a leg.
I'm going to get an accessory arm so that I can put it on my mic stand.

Besides reading books, I use my Nook for display of my guitar transcriptions with lyrics and for recording 24 bit audio.

I don't use a builtin mic, I use a Shure SM58 (standard stage mic) and a Lexicon Alpha USB interface.
Getting it to work is all part of this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1457971

I haven't really ported my guitar transcription display program over to Android yet as it's actually quite complicated.
I format songs as PNGs on my desktop and then have a simple program on the Nook that can scroll them.
I have a database front-end for looking up songs that's actually more convenient than anything that I have on my desktop.

The point is so that I can use a camera mini-tripod to hold the Nook so that I can read it without holding it.

Here's a few photos of a desk mic stand that I am using with a home-built adapter.
