They say that good things come to those who wait, and here we are with word from Barnes & Noble touting that they will be delivering their e-book reader across the ocean, with the Nook device arriving on British shores later this autumn. This would mark the Barnes & Noble Nook’s first international outing, now how about that? Their Nook Simple Touch and Simple Touch with glow light e-readers will be sold via select British retailers later this coming October, although it remains to be seen just which retailers will carry these new Nooks, but do expect Barnes & Noble to make an announcement on the designated retailers in a short while.

Not only that, Barnes & Noble did mention as well that they will launch the online store in due time. The Nook did prove to be quite a seller in the US, assisting Barnes & Noble in managing its cash flow after the decline of brick-and-mortar, traditional bookstores. Right now, Barnes & Noble holds approximately 27% of the US e-book market.
