Barnes and Noble has discounted the Nook Glowlight in the US, just in time for Mothers Day. Starting Friday May 2nd, the Glowlight can be yours for a solid $99 and there will also be savings on the Clip Cover to protect it from the elements. While you are at the store you can save an additional 40% on many hardcover titles.
The Nook Glowlight is Barnes and Nobles second generation e-reader to incorporate front-lit technology. This allows you to read in the dark and control the luminous levels via the software driven slider. Overall, its a fairly solid reader if you want to be purchasing content from B&N, it w ill also allow you to load in your own books.
This is the second time the Nations largest bookseller has discounted the Nook Glowlight. The first was in early April when it dropped it from $119 to $99 for a limited time. It looks like we can expect further discounts for all of the major holidays and events this year.
