All Nook Models Are On Sale Today in the UK – Glow, Touch, & Nook HD

nooksimpletouchreader[1]Barnes & Noble hasn't had much good news to share about their efforts to expand into the UK ebook market but it looks like that might change.B&N launched a new sales effort today in the UK. They've marked down the price of the Nook Touch and the Nook Glow.

Act fast and you can get the Nook Glow for £69 and the Nook Touch for £29. You can find the ereaders at Argos, Currys, and Sainsburys, and B&N has also dropped the price listed at

And if ereaders aren't your thing, B&N has put the Nook HD and Nook HD+ on sale. This offer isn't available direct from B&N, but I have checked the websites of Argos, Currys, and Sainsburys and confirmed that they are offering the Nook HD for either £129 or £119. That's a nice discount from the regular retail of £159.

The Nook HD+ is also offered at a £30 to £40 discount at Sainsburys, Argos, and the Nook UK website, down from the original retail price of £229.


This sale wasn't announced by B&N, but it does seems to include all of B&N's retail partners. Perhaps this is how B&N plans to be more aggressive in competing for readers. Competition is good, but I do wish they had gotten aggressive last year or the year before.

    There’s the press release.

    It’s actually a promotion in conjunction with the London Evening Standard’s literacy drive.

  2. I skipped that press release, obviously. Thanks.
