NookSimpleTouch-glowtouch.jpgBarnes & Noble have slashed the prices of their eReader and tablet ranges in the UK.

The headline-stealing price cut is that of the Nook Simple Touch eReader, dropping to a pocket-money price of £29, down from £79, making it the cheapest eReader with any pedigree on the market.

That’s followed by the backlit Nook Simple Touch GlowLight (pictured), now priced at just £69 and considerable cheaper than its £109 Kindle Paperwhite rival.

Tablets also get a price cut, with the Nook HD and Nook HD+ now sitting at £129 and £179 respectively, seriously bringing the fight to their Amazon competitors.

“Literacy is at the heart of everything we do,” said Jim Hilt, Managing Director, Barnes & Noble.

“We have a passion for everyone to experience digital reading affordably, anytime and anywhere. It was a perfect fit when we had the opportunity to partner on the ‘Get London Reading’ campaign. We hope to further enrich the minds of readers of all ages across the UK and give them affordable access to the books they love.”

Limited time offers to coincide with the “Get London Reading” campaign, now is definitely the time to dive in if you’ve been holding out grabbing an eReader before now. No word yet on how long the promotion lasts, but we’ll keep you posted.
