I have been looking for a good price for a e-reader for a while and this seems to be extremely well priced for a new item.

I know this was posted a while back, but the deal is still there and at a very reasonable price.

Share the love people.

Yes sorry there is a £2.50 delivery charge. There is also some refurbished glowlight nooks available on eBay at a reasonable price, when I looked on there.

This is pretty much regular price of these now, bought two last December from John Lewis as Chrismtas presents, then saw them again in February and just before Easter for £29 in few places.

It looks like "let's swing our prices to trick people into thinking they got a bargain" strategy more than anything else.
#14
Amazing, remember last year when Barnes & Noble had the "offer" on this for £29, with retailers in Argos, Blackwells, Sainsbury etc all doing the promotion at the same price, it selling out everywhere, then restocked...

Strange thing is, I don't recall it ever been sold for more than the "offer" price since....
#15
Heat for an ereader on hukd! If you can stretch though buy a kobo aura or an aura hd. B&n's Nook may not be around this time next year.
#16
Glad to see a lot of heat going towards this. As mentioned above earlier, I was doing some research online and found some of these ereaders but the glow light version going on eBay as refurbished and at £32.99, which I thought was extremely reasonable too.

I think these are a decent buy for a ereader and a nice change to the monopoly of the Kindle.

Unless you tie yourself to any ereader's store then there really is no problem what ereader you buy as long as it has whatever supported formats you require, and even that can be circumvented with Calibre.

I buy books from whichever digital store is cheapest, if that even means Kindles azw format I convert to epub.

Naturally it makes business sense for any ereader manufacturer to try and tempt you into their own little walled garden of a library, this doesn't make sense to your own wallet though, just convenience.

i don't know why you'd buy this over a Kobo - with kobo you can access any bookstore you want, these and kindles are locked to ensure a monopoly.

Yes.

Personally, i'd spend the extra for the Glowlight model. You will be glad you did. Mrs topazz and i have one each and it greatly enhances its usefulness in poor light conditions. Bear in mind that for both models, the screens are fragile. Doesn't take that much of a knock or pressure and the e-ink bleeds beneath the glass. I therefore recommend getting a cover for it that protects the screen when not in use. As luck would have it, Nook uk are selling off the excellent official covers for £5 each delivered. Both ereaders are hot at these sort of prices.

Wait, so can THIS nook not be read at night? That's kind of a deal breaker..

No, all ereaders that are not backlit can be read at night the same as any real book, with either the aid of a clip on light or a bedside lamp, they just do not have the convenience of having a backlight of which the main advantage is instead of using a clip on light there are no "hot spots" where the light shines giving an even lighting over the entire "page".

I don't believe so. Nook do/did two models, the Simple Touch and the Simple Touch Glowlight. Exactly the same except for the front lit illumination. The link is to the former at £29, the Simple Touch Glowlight is out of stock at Blackwell's but was £49.

You don't need to root the device to import epub files. It's simply drag and drop. Digital rights issues (if any) can be easily fixed by the the excellent (free) ebook software suite called Calibre.

The Glowlight is £49 at Argos. Picked the 3rd one up for our family last week, now my daughter is reading the Harry Potter series I can't get mine back. A complete bargain and will be well used this summer :)

I paid £46 last week so it might be worth keeping an eye on

You need to 'Update' it then on your Product Description to reflect the £2.50 Postage & Packaging Costs please ..... thanx. :-)

Oh, I do, It genuinely sat at its RRP or £10 shy of it on occassions for ages.

Amazing e-reader at an amazing price! Can't go wrong. I have one and I have an HD tablet as well and love both.
Not sure if it is true or just a rumour, but I heard somewhere that Barnes and Nobles are moving towards clearing off the Nook ST stock in market, so may be this is a good time to get one of these.

They don't change their prices to trick people. These are £29 year round. And the glowlights are £49 year round.

£29 is it's RRP... It was initially stated to be a promotion but they never put the price back up.
