The Nook Glowlight Plus has a 7.8 inch screen and 8GB of memory and packs a larger battery than previous models. It has a front-lit display screen and color temperature system. You will be able to use this in at the beach or in the bathtub, since it is waterproof. This e-reader was designed with 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.
“We are thrilled to bring the new NOOK GlowLight Plus to customers with our largest high-resolution E-Ink screen yet,” said Bill Wood, EVP; President, Digital at Barnes & Noble. “The waterproof, upgraded design makes reading easy, wherever you are. This new NOOK is in stores just in time for summer reading, Father’s Day, or for any book-lover that wants to experience the latest in digital reading.”
