NOOK GlowLight Plus


The New NOOK GlowLight Plus will be available in stores on May 27, 2019 and two days later the will be available on line. Yes, it is the same name as the older model from 2015.

The new reader maintains the classic Nook soft-touch style, coupled with a considerably larger 7.8-inch screen featuring the titular front lighting. Bulkiness is notable on such a device to make it more comfortable. The the price is $199 with 10% off for members.

That includes 8GB of built-in storage and your standard works-for-weeks-at-a-time battery. The new Nook has adjustable GlowLight with cool white color during the day and a warmer tone at night, and waterproof for all those summer reading misadventures. There is a soft-touch finish that is easy to hold for long periods of time and page-turning buttons on both sides of the device for right or left-handed use.

The page turn buttons can be used to turn pages forward, backward, scan pages, jump to the next chapter or jump back to the beginning of the current chapter. You can use the wifi to listen to BN podcast (using headphones) or browse the BN catalog of eBooks, purchase, and download (account required). You can also sync your reading with other devices or apps from BN.

The Nook has a clock and can operate the GlowLight automatically based on time of day if desired to reduce Blue-light exposure. Of course this can also be used manually.

A Merriam-Webster dictionary is included.
