If you’re new to the world of digital reading devices, you might not have heard of the Nook e-reader let alone the Glowlight Plus. So what is the Nook Glowlight Plus?
This e-reader is the newest Nook device to be released from Barnes and Noble and it will be hitting a BN store near you on May 27, 2019, Memorial Day. On May 29, it’ll be released online.
While Amazon does dominate the e-reader market easily, Barnes and Noble has still kept their fingers in the pie throughout the years. Most Nook e-readers are 6″ e-Ink screen reading devices similar to the basic Kindle model. You can learn about all the Nook devices in my post here.
Die-hard Nook fans swear by the devices, but they tend to be a tad heavier than their Kindle cousins. This makes it a little harder on your hands for sustained reading, but if you’re one of those people who only read in the waiting room of a doctor’s office, a Nook would be right up your alley.
Nooks are also quite nice if you’re an avid Barnes and Noble shopper. They often have the devices in the stores, with on-site support if you have problems setting up your device. That’s quite handy if you’re not a technical person, actually.
The New Nook Glowlight Plus
This device is not to be confused with the model before the Glowlight 3 of the same name.
On Thursday, Barnes and Noble announced the release of the Nook Glowlight Plus on May 27, 2019.
The new Nook Glowlight Plus will have adjustable color temperature front lighting, as the name sort of implies. It also has a 7.8″ 300 ppi touchscreen, making it the largest Nook e-reader Barnes and Noble has produced yet. It comes with 8G of memory, which is plenty for most users. AND it’s waterproof if you’re looking to read in the bathtub or on the beach. It will retail for around $200, which is an extremely affordable price for such a large e-reader.
It will have page turn buttons on the side of the screen and the trademarked nook button on the bottom of the screen. It’s also reported to have a soft-touch finish for your holding pleasure and a bigger battery than previous models.
If you’re a Barnes and Noble member, you can get this new Nook for 10% off. Pretty cool, yo.
Memorial Day – May 27, 2019,
If you’re looking to splurge this Memorial Day, head on down to your nearest Barnes and Noble bookstore. Pick up the newest Nook. $200 for a 7.8″ device is an excellent price.
I would absolutely love it if y’all came back and let me know how you’re enjoying the new Glowlight! Comment below with your opinion on it!
