History of Barnes & Noble

Leonard Riggio, the company's chairman, began his bookselling career while attending New York University in the early 1960s. Working as a clerk in the university bookstore, he became convinced that he could do a better job serving students, and he opened a competing store of his own. The store quickly became one of New York’s finest bookstores, known for its knowledgeable staff, wide selection and great service.

Barnes & Noble are now the world’s largest bookseller and retailer of content and digital media. They now have the worlds largest online book store with over 2.5 million titles and John Lewis are their premium UK launch retailer for the NOOK eReader.

Q & As


NOOK Simple Touch GlowLight eReader 4.4 5 50 50
Better than I expected I have had this a few weeks, and was very pleased when it arrived. I found it very easy to download books. It is just like reading a book, but with the added advantage that you can read in the dark without disturbing your husband. I like the idea I can take it out with me, and have 70 books at hand. Great for holidays. 28 January 2014
Really pleased with my Nook Bought my Nook in November and really love it. The only reason I have not given it 5 stars is that I had a problem with battery drain on the first one. But typical of John Lewis's customer service they replaced it without a quibble It is very easy to understand and use, and with a micro sd card you can sideload more books than you would ever read in a lifetime. Great for anyone with arthritic hands/wrists because it is much easier to hold than even a paper back and can easily be held in one hand. 22 January 2014
Superb! Was torn between buying the new Kindle paper white or the Nook. Both seemed very similar other than Kindle tells you % of book you have read rather than the page you are on and oh, the price!! This e-reader is fantastic, I absolutely love it. Easy to set up, loads of free books and an extensive library to choose from. Books download in seconds, easy. Glow light is great. Can read in bed without a lamplight as the strength of the glow light can be adjusted. Cannot recommend enough. 19 January 2014
Great light - but difficult to set up I chose the Nook for my 10 yr old and was initially delighted, great size, lovely glow light but it was almost impossible to register our details and try to buy a book - it uses Barnes and Noble, no problem I thought but it just would not/could not connect us so we went in circles and eventually returned it to JL and they very kindly upgraded us to a Kindle....well it was a 10 yr old's Xmas present! No light on the Kindle but a much better product easier to use and to use Amazon of course. 14 January 2014
great product I bought this for my 9 year old. She finds it easy to use. It is exactly what I was looking for at a price i was happy to pay. 09 January 2014
Not as easy to use as the Kindle I bought one of these at the same time as the Kindle paperwhite and I do have to say that it is not so easy to navigate or to buy books. The screen has failed although it has been very carefully looked after. I am hoping to replace it as although it is a good price for what it is, when you compare it with the kindle it does not do as well. 07 January 2014
can,t put it down !! great product , easy to download library books which is what I wanted it for, it is also easier to hold than a book especially if you have dodgy wrists. it was a bit stressful trying to connect to my home internet but that was my fault for not recognising the arrow as the enter button on the keypad !! well worth the money. I have even treated it to a nook cover. 31 December 2013
the best ereader Nook is the best ereader I used. It's very easy to use and download, My parents are aged people and they love it too. 17 December 2013
