Barnes and Noble has officially discontinued the Nook Simple Touch and the Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight. These two e-readers are now a few years old and the company is now only actively selling the Nook Glowlight, Nook HD and Nook HD+.
The Nook Simple Touch was the companies first e-reader that featured a single e-ink based screen. This was their most popular device and raised the bar on the digital reading experience. Barnes and Noble also used this model as an entryway to the United Kingdom, due to the fact of the low price point. The Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight was released a year later in 2012 and pioneered the front lit display.
The Nook Simple Touch and Simple Touch with Glowlight are discontinued and the bookseller will not be making anymore. Select Barnes and Noble Bookstores in the USA may still have some in stock, but once they are sold out, they are gone forever. The same goes in the UK, they are still available at Foyles, John Lewis, Blackwell’s and others.
