Nook ereaders now start at just £29. Tablets from £129

Well Barnes & Noble are not quite giving away their Nook range just yet, but they almost are.

The company has just announced some price rejigging and the Nook Simple Touch ereader has dropped to a pocket-money price of £29, which is down from £79. It is now by some distance the cheapest ereader from a name brand for sale in the UK.

Other ereaders have also been reduced in price too including the backlit Nook Simple Touch GlowLight which is now £69, and the company’s pair of tablets the Nook HD and Nook HD+ now costing £129 and £179 respectively.

The prices are for a limited period only, so if you want one you need to get on to it pronto.

Jim Hilt, Managing Director, Barnes & Noble said

“We have a passion for everyone to experience digital reading affordably, anytime and anywhere. It was a perfect fit when we had the opportunity to partner on the ‘Get London Reading’ campaign. We hope to further enrich the minds of readers of all ages across the UK and give them affordable access to the books they love.”
