When you are on the road, the right accessories can turn a boring flight or lonely hotel room into an adventure! With your NOOK Color or NOOK Tablet by your side, you can have plenty of fun, entertainment or just plain distraction while on the road or in the air.
However, your NOOK can be even more fn and useful if you have the right accessories. Let’s take a look at some of the best NOOK extras to have when you are on the go!
1. A sturdy case. The ones from Barnes and Noble are great, but check around to find even more sturdy and attractive ones from independent stores – we like this Bundle Monster that holds your NOOK Color plus an array of credit cards and other personal items for quick and easy access.
2. A stylus. If you use your NOOK as more than just an e-reader, a stylus is a must have! This gorgeous Touch Pen Stylus is perfect for the job without feeling like a cheap Nintendo pen. Developed specifically for the NOOK Tablet, this pen features a soft non-degrading rubber touchpoint that eliminates scratches from occurring.
3. High quality earbuds. B&N does a fine job of branding their own earbuds, the NOOK Audio IE250. According to them, their engineers “paid special attention to enhancing bass reproduction, creating a full-bodied sound that’s truly remarkable in such a compact, lightweight product.”
4. A car charger. This is another great product from B&N, and a must have if you plan to be zipping around in a rental. Charge your NOOK Color or Tablet on the road with their handy car charging kit, so when you get back to your hotel you can hunker down for an enjoyable read without being tethered to the wall adapter.
5. A reading light. Coming soon from B&N, the Lyra Light makes it easier to read your NOOK without having to angle it towards the nearest light source. The sturdy, flexible neck points a bright, white LED onto your NOOK’s reading surface, and the shallow clip with a cushioned grip pad won’t interfere with the screen as you read.
6. A charging dock with speakers. The N-Station from ReaderDock provides the perfect solution – a charging dock that lets you use your NOOK Tablet or Color while you charge it, with built in speakers and even a headphone jack for private listening!
Once you’ve got all these great NOOK accessories in your bag, you are ready to go!
