The world's largest bookseller, Barnes & Noble, sees its NOOK ebook reader launch in the UK from today at more than 1,600 high street retailers including John Lewis, Argos, Sainsbury's, Dixons, Waitrose, Blackwell's and Foyles.
"Our high-quality NOOK Simple Touch and NOOK Simple Touch GlowLight products pack in a lightning fast, easy-to-use touchscreen and access to our robust NOOK content catalogue, in an incredibly lightweight form at an amazing value," said Jamie Iannone, president of digital products at Barnes & Noble. "NOOK Simple Touch puts the focus on reading instead of the technology, while NOOK Simple Touch GlowLight is the first product to hit the market that is perfect for both outdoor and bedtime reading, with a built-in reading light. We're excited to give UK customers the opportunity to enjoy both of these devices, plus one of the world's largest digital bookstores with more than 2.5 million books, newspapers and magazines."
The NOOK family of products was developed by Barnes & Noble, the world's largest bookseller, with decades of bookselling and publishing expertise. NOOK is one of the fastest growing digital brands, and its growth will be further bolstered by expanding its award-winning products, software and content to the UK.
