Wide range of NOOK products available at University Bookstore
Like to read a good book? The University Bookstore has a wide range of NOOK products for students, faculty and staff.

The devices, which are used to read e-books, include the NOOK Simple Touch, NOOK Simple Touch with Glowlight, NOOK HD and NOOK HD+.

The NOOK e-book devices are not recommended for reading digital textbooks. However, University of Houston students can download the NOOK Study eTextbook reader for PCs and Macs for free.

The eTextbook reader, which is by Barnes & Noble, can be downloaded from the website of the University Bookstore. After downloading the application, students can try different eTextbooks free for seven days.

Digital textbook sales are increasing in popularity. One reason is they cost less. Students can save up to 60 percent off the cost of new printed textbooks.

Felix Robinson, manager of the UH Bookstore, encourages students and faculty to take advantage of NOOK Study, which integrates many of the more popular LMS systems, including Blackboard Learn, Moodle, Sakai and Desire2Learn.
