When it comes to e-readers, only Kindle owners enjoy a freedom to choose from a wide offer of cases and accessories.
A choice of cases for Barnes & Noble devices is much narrower, but it doesn’t mean you can only shop original Nook accessories.
There are other sites, where you can find a good accessory for your new Nook. It’s just a matter of making a short research.
We’ve made that research for you, and in this post you’ll find the best Nook GlowLight Plus cases.
Sometimes, the solution is to by a universal 6-inch e-reader case that will fit also your Nook. What you will need to do, though, is to compare the maximum dimensions of the device that fits that case with the size of your Nook.
Nook dimensions ( height × width × depth )
|Nook GlowLight Plus (2015)||6.4 × 4.7 × 0.34||163.6 × 119.6 × 8.6|
|Nook GlowLight (2013)||6.5 × 5.0 × 0.42||165 × 127 × 10.7|
|Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight||6.5 × 5.0 × 0.47||165 × 127 × 11.9|
|Nook Simple Touch||6.5 × 5.0 × 0.47||165 × 127 × 11.9|
Having the info about dimensions at hand is also good if you will be shopping for sleeves.
Sleeves are a good alternative to cases. You have to take out the device from the sleeve in order to use it. This is actually not a bad idea. When you use the device, you care about it, but it needs protection when you carry it in a purse or bag.
