I wondered about that too. It seems off.

One thing that really turned me off Nooks several models ago was their instance on limiting the amount of storage available for side-loaded content--this became an even bigger problem when they eliminated the sd card slot.
That turned me off to the initial Nook Glowlight (the all white model) because side loading was limited to something like 0.5GB. But both the Glowlight Plus and 3 offer at least 2.5GB. The SD card in my Aura that I have never removed a read book from only has 3GB of books on it, so 2.5 should be plenty.
