I was not aware, and do not see any information listed here.

I have been enjoying his Necroscope® series.

He will be missed.

I know there are a few fans here who would like to know. I've not read anything of his yet but do have him on my TBR list.

Discount Coupon Offer for old Nooks

05:33 AM by cgsmom in E-Book Readers | Barnes & Noble NOOK

I still have my old Nook Simple Touch. I was thinking about taking it to Best Buy for recycling. I saw on B&N that they are offering a coupon for $50 off the regular price of the Nook Glowlight 4e when you trade in a Simple Touch, a Simple Touch w/Glowlight, or Nook Glowlight from 2013.

I know the Glowlight 4e is not a great device, but I think I would like to have it to take with me to Dr. appointments and such. I don’t like to carry my Glowlight 4 Plus out of the house.

I also know that $50 off the regular price is not that great because it is currently on sale, but it is better than nothing. It is more than I would get with my membership discount.

Just thought someone else might have an old Nook they are not using.

Update: I just got back from my local B&N. This is not a trade-in program. They are getting ready to retire those readers so they will no longer connect to the servers. When you enter the serial number of your reader you are emailed a coupon code for the $50 discount on the Glowlight 4e which you can use online or in store.
