For some reason, the apps available on the marketplace for my nook is extremely limited. Am I doing something wrong? I have very few apps, and I only have 2 things to select. Top paid and Top Free, both with very few apps.

I think I have the old marketplace installed, though, I downloaded the latest gapps.

It could be the Nook or the country you live in that is restricted. I wouldn't think CM would be (unless the apps you're looking for are not compatible with 2.3 for some odd reason). – eldarerathis Aug 19 '11 at 13:05
The reason is because of pixel density. changing it from 161 to 160 works. – diesel Aug 20 '11 at 10:38

As noted in the comments, this appears to be the answer:

This is discussed on the CyanogenMod forums here (along with many other threads). It also appears that newer versions of CyanogenMod automatically set the pixel density to 160 for you. Your ROM's density value should be in the /system/build.prop file (look for an entry about "LCD density". It can be modified manually or with one of several apps.

It should be because google market thinks the apps are not supported by your device. You can go to Online Android Market and try installing the app that is not displayed. It should say that your device(Nook) is not supported for that app.
