I hadn't even heard an upgrade was due!  The following was tweeted by NookBN.

1.3 Firmware is here! The Award-Winning NOOK Color now has People, Time, SI, Fitness & more. Details: http://t.co/P1G2FzC

You can also now FINALLY delete the cookbook from your Nook Color.   After you upload the new software, go to BN.com and refresh your inventory of books.    Archive it and then delete it.  There are also 3 other sample books you will most like want to do this with as well.
