I got charged again yesterday, and then got a dispatch e-mail, I'll see if anything turns up now. It's very odd.


Received the email a couple days ago and got the book today. Ordered a couple books over the last couple of months and the service has been just the same as with any other book seller.


Woeful service from this website, had to send an email yesterday after the order had not been dispatched after 9 days. Got a reply saying it's been despatched but still no despatch email sent. I'll stick to other sellers In future.


That's what I thought. No, nothing at all since ordering. It was still available earlier too but isn't now. I'll drop them a message and see what they say, if not it's 50p cheaper on eBay and I'm not in a rush


Weird, did you get a "shipped" email from them? Might have been oos

Love garlic bread, thanks


Cool, thanks for the info.


The term “Gaelic”, as a language, applies only to the language of Scotland. If you're not in Ireland, it is permissible to refer to the language as Irish Gaelic to differentiate it from Scottish Gaelic, but when you're in the Emerald Isle, simply refer to the language as either Irish or its native name, Gaeilge.

NOOK® GlowLight e-reader now £49, down from £89 @ Blackwell's
As above, there are some on their website for £49 reduced from £89 but they seem to be running out fast.

I wish I could... turns out my nook was a US item based on serial number and they couldnt return or repair it in UK.


You could have just returned it to get refund or repair.


Expires after 24 consecutive months without use. As long as you buy something and return it you have another 24 months :).


I got the nook a year ago. stopped working (lines on display, parts of screen blank) within couple of month, absolutely rubbish customer service - no repair, no replacement - I was told to wipe it at the sides as the dust apparently can break it! didn't work. With the amount of time I spent, I gave up in the end... 49£ down the drain. :(


These are really good....i was lucky to get one this year for £59 from sainsburys x

We got two from this deal put cyanogenmod on both and had no problems


AVOID! slow and has custom charger! installing roms helps but not much. better off with fire hd probably or if you can save get a nexus.


You can get the Nook for £65 (16GB) anywhere now on the internet, but at £50 it's still a good saving. For £50 you could buy a generic Chinese tablet or buy the brand-name Nook for the same price. This thing is CHEAP. My one gripe with the Nook is that the screen is unpleasant to the touch - I think it's what they call "gorilla glass", (edit* no it isn't) it has an odd rough feel to it completely different to the screen of my Samsung Galaxy, I don't like it. You could use a stylus, but it's not a good tablet for games due to the horrible feel of the glass. Still, it's only £50 for a 9" display. Another minor irritation is that you have to enter an email address to set up the Nook - and if you don't have an email address you'll have to use a different device to set one up, and you can't skip the email set-up. Btw, to get Google Play, you must update the software (in Settings) to version 2.10 or better.


Just got back from vacation to find mine, for the money - gotta say wow!


Thanks for the feedback. My Nexus 7 2012 is literally grinding to a halt, I think it's going to implode, it can't even cope with Yahtzee with buddies - had to uninstall it!

Correct! The service was great tbh. I was meant to but they never emailed me the UPS labels to send it :/ the old one is currently sitting under the bed!


Even though you messed it up, they sent you a replacement. That is pretty amazing customer service. :| :D By the way, did you have to send your old one in? And was it at your cost (P&P)?


I've had a nook simple touch for ages, never seen an operating system problem! Calibre is the software to have... It's free, and excellent.


I have a nook and now they don't support all operating systems if its the same as mine. You may need win 8, and as for my mac that i upgraded to 10.9, no chance. I much preferred it to my kobo, but alas I've gone back to actual paper books this week!

Thanks for clearing up and putting into one post, if anything there is a confusing set of backs and forths going on through comments. This is exactly what I needed!


Yep, I pretty much covered that in posts #62 and #71, you would be surprised the amount of technophobes though that do not even know how to drag and drop files, let alone convert them with plugins in calibre. It is that market whereby the walled gardens of buying through a dedicated store that Barnes & Noble and Amazon rely on. It does have its advantages for those that subscribe to daily newspapers, for me personally I am quite happy to stick with my old trusty well built Sony PRS-650 that does not have and frankly I have no need for an online shop. I never even used Barnes & Nobles shop on the 1st Edition Nook.


Try posts #20 and #21 for a start! I was just trying to make it crystal clear that the Nook uses an open format, .epub, just like the Kobo. It is Amazon who have the proprietary format. You are right that if you want to buy books from Amazon you have to either buy them on your PC, convert them and drag and drop them, or you can root the Nook and put the Kindle app on it - which is possibly a bit too much hassle for some people. However, there are loads of bookstores that stock .epub books and it isn't really any hassle to buy them on a PC and drag and drop them on to a Nook and it doesn't have to be rooted. For the odd occasions when it isn't possible to do this, then books can be bought directly on the Nook from Barnes and Noble over a wi-fi connection.


There is no misinformation going on here. To be able to buy books from anywhere else ON the Nook itself you have to root it, I already mentioned if you want to buy books from Amazon you have to convert using Calibre (unless your Nook is rooted and using the Kindle app through android). Where is there misinformation on this thread?


There's a great deal of misinformation going on here! I own a Nook and so does my mum (and my OH owns a Kobo) The Nook uses the open standard .epub format for books, exactly the same as a Kobo. The Nook is not locked to Barnes and Noble. You can buy .epub books from any store (or get free ones from Gutenburg etc) on your PC and simply drag and drop them into the Nook, either to internal memory or microSD. If you want to buy books from Amazon then you will need to convert them to .epub from their proprietary format - this can be done very simply and quickly on your PC using Calibre with the Apprentice Alf plugin installed. It is not necessary to root the Nook to do any of the above! I have rooted my Nook, but I can run it as a standard Nook (most of the time) or as a simple Android tablet by just pressing one button. I have the Opera mobile browser installed (quite usable if you set it to default to landscape) and it's more than adequate as a quick email checker if my phone is not to hand. It's also possible to add a Kindle app - but I haven't bothered with this because I use Calibre on my PC. In short, this is a great little reader and £29 is a good price.

Still in stock. Thanks.


Got my Nook simple touch last year as it was such a good price and I wanted to get back into reading novels after years of neglect. I am now working my way through a mix of great classics and top-rated thrillers and really enjoying it, having probably read more books in the last year than I had in the previous decade. I really like the fact the Nook has a touchscreen. It's a doddle to turn the page with a quick tap of your thumb on the right-hand side of the screen while holding it in your hand and for me, easier than using the side buttons which need a firmer press to do the same thing. The touchscreen is also great for quick highlighting of words you want to look up in the dictionary. As an e-reader for reading outdoors in the sun and indoors during the day, the Nook simple touch is an excellent little device but I would suggest that if you read in the evening under artificial light or like dimmed lighting in the room, the glowlight model is probably the better option to go for.




Bought one of these when they were on offer last year for my daughter and returned it as battery life was less than half that of my Kindle (it was much less than that until I registered it). Got a second with the same result. In the end paid twice as much for the Kindle and daughter is much happier with it. Kindle is less bulky, feels better put together and (in my experience) has a vastly superior battery life. Another strange thing with the Nooks we had is that went the battery went you had little or no warning which was incredibly annoying. On the Kindle you can get another hour or two of reading after the warning. It is a good price but for me the Kindle is better value.


Voted hot. I think these are OK. Have used on holiday abroad in the sun and read screen OK. Have had no reliability probs and battery life is excellent. Have converted ebooks from other sellers to a format that the Nook can read. I have a second one and I am trying to get my other half to use but she prefers real books.

Been looking for a NOOK ereader as my NOOK HD+ is great as a tablet but not ideal for reading. Missed this last time it was at this price due to quickly selling out so was glad to find this, thanks OP. Still have stock left; ordered Tuesday and should come tomorrow (Thu) to coincide with £5 cover from B&N. Thanks again.


Can you stop saying "it's not a deal" or "it's at that price everywhere" then downvoting. This particular e-reader at this price has been out of stock for so long it's not funny. I've been looking for one for an absolute age and thanks to all you downvoters people stopped posting them on here. Thank you rarrar, I've finally managed to get one.


My favourite E-reader. I bought one months ago when the price first dropped and have read countless books on it. Ordered one of these from Blackwells as a back up last Friday and it came the next day! Avoid the glow version as my friend has one and within a week had scratched the screen, also, side by side, i preferred the screen on the simple touch, there was something off about the screen on the glow.

They took my credit card number and shipped them to me. They did get mixed up about the more expensive £69 one with me and I said I wanted the £29 one. Mine haven't arrived yet - hoping they do now as I have bought cases for them. They only took £58 from the Credit Card.


As a member of a number of libraries across the UK (yeah I've moved a lot!), I love the fact that so many have picked up on ebook lending. Check it out - all you need is your library card number and PIN. I would say that the collections still seem in their infancy, though I know many libraries are adding new titles all the time. You'll generally find newer books alongside the classics (which you can get for free from project gutenberg too). Oh and do support your local library. They are immensely valuable resources and it is an absolute crime that these fantastic places are being closed down across the country.


ewww, sorry to hear it. Avoid John Lewis in that case! Saw another deal today - looks like they are back in Asda...

Thanks a lot mate! I was desperately looking another one for gift and was about to give up. These are nowhere to be found if you have changed your mind recently. So I'm not sure why this is cold. This is (unlike many places) in stock and from a well known retailer. And for those that complain about delivery, I bought mine in store, so it was just £ 29. Heat added!


I don't mind a Nook... but I still prefer the full Nookie :p


If you can find it cheaper mark it cold, if you cant then its a good deal and mark it hot - simples!


It is £29, but delivery is £2.50. Personally, I'm a bit cheesed off with all the smart Alec comments about it being RRP and not a good deal. These things are rare as hen's teeth at the moment and for those of us who weren't fortunate enough to purchase when they were in abundance, it's very useful to be informed where they can still be found. The device can be easily rooted and the Kindle Android app loaded which allows access to the Amazon Kindle bookstore as well as the Nook bookstore. If that isn't a bargain for £29, I don't know what is. OK, so I've invited the smart Alec's to respond. Enjoy! :)


Because I changed my mind :)
