Are you looking for an affordable e-book reader? Barnes & Noble has just made a $20 price cut on the NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight which now only costs $99. This is the second major price cut for this device; the first one was made late last year. While a price reduction usually signifies that a newer model is about to be released this isn’t the case for the company as they have announced that they will be discontinuing any new hardware releases.
One of the best features of this model is that it has a backlit e-Ink display. This means that readers will be able to enjoy reading their favorite e-books even in the dark. The illumination is spread evenly across the display and can easily be adjusted with just a touch to suit any environment.
According to Michael P. Huseby, President, Barnes & Noble, Inc. & CEO, NOOK Media LLC, “At just $99, our high-quality, top-rated NOOK Simple Touch GlowLight is an unbeatable value for customers who are seeking an unparalleled, pure reading experience that goes from beach to bed, day or night. NOOK Simple Touch GlowLight is the first Reader to hit the market with built-in illumination for reading in the dark and is the perfect way to experience NOOK’s best-in-class digital reading experience at an unbelievable price.”
