Barnes & Noble Inc. is releasing a new Nook e-reader for the holidays, while it evaluates the future of tablet computers.

Nook tablets haven't sold well amid competition from Apple's iPad, Amazon's Kindle Fire and others. Barnes & Noble had a slim 2 percent share of the worldwide tablet market in the fourth quarter of 2012, but fell off research firm IDC's top 5 list this year.

Barnes & Noble's new e-reader, Nook GlowLight, is available in its retail stores and online starting Wednesday for $119, the same as the standard model of Amazon.com Inc.'s Kindle Paperwhite reader.
