Recently Barnes & Noble announced that their Nook family of eBook readers will be hitting the UK retailer, John Lewis, but apparently that’s not the only trick up the company’s sleeve with the announcement of the eReader’s releases at Foyles, Argos and Blackwell’s, which will all be stocking the Nook Simple Touch and Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight from their UK launch dates.
There’s no word on a release date or price for the eReaders just yet, but the president of digital products at Barnes & Noble, Jamie Iannone said this about the launch:
“We’re excited to work with Argos, Blackwell’s and Foyles to introduce our popular Nook reading experience to an even broader audience in the United Kingdom,” said Jamie Iannone, president of digital products at Barnes & Noble.
“Argos built its brand on choice and convenience, and with 90 per cent of the population living within 10 miles of an Argos store, this literally brings the Nook experience close to home for millions of UK consumers.
“Blackwell’s has built a reputation on its wide selection of titles and extremely knowledgeable staff, much like Barnes & Noble, and we’re delighted to continue in our dedication to the education space.
“As London’s largest independent bookshop chain, Foyles is a trusted name in books and literature in the UK, so we’re pleased to work together to bring Nook and our expansive digital catalogue to people passionate about books and reading.”
