The price drop for the Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight has officially droppe from $139 to $119.

Hints started showing up yesterday that the price of the Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight was about to drop. Both Target and Walmart weekly circulars were showing the e-reader price was being slashed by $20 to bring it into line with the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite. At the time though it was unclear if this was just a sale for those particular retailers or a new suggested retail price.

Barnes & Noble did indeed update its website with the new price this morning, making the price reduction official.

It appears that is going to be a good holiday season for anyone that is thinking about getting into reading digital books.
