Target already revealed that Barnes & Noble's Nook HD would be available for $79 during this year's Black Friday shopping frenzy, and today B&N itself is matching the promotion and extending it with a cheaper Simple Touch e-reader and discounted content deals. The Simple Touch drops to $39 from tomorrow through Sunday, December 1st, with availability first on the company's website and then across its 700 stores from Friday. The same is true of the $79 Nook HD, which — like the Simple Touch — isn't the very latest or greatest device in its category, but does get you access to the Google Play Store and enough utility to justify its discounted price.

On the content side of things, B&N has a vast selection of discounts and incentives to buy in bulk. There's a "buy one, get one for $10" offer on Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions, a 50 percent discount on boxed sets like Game of Thrones, and 50 percent off a library of over 1,000 DVDs and Blu-rays that includes Skyfall and House of Cards.
