Father's Day is lasting a little bit longer than usual, at least in the land of Barnes & Noble.

The retailer revealed on Monday that it's stretching its special Father's Day sales prices on the Nook HD and Nook HD+ tablets. Kicked off on June 10, B&N's self-dubbed "best prices ever" promotion will now last for an extended but limited amount of time.

The Nook HD is selling for $129 for the 8GB version and $149 for the 16GB model, while the Nook HD+ can be had for $149 for the 16GB edition and $179 for the 32GB flavor. The sales prices are good at Barnes & Noble bookstores and at Nook.com, as well as through third-party Nook retailers.

"With the fantastic success of our Father's Day promotion, we decided to extend the great prices on Nook HD and Nook HD+ to help our customers gear up for a great summer reading season," Nook Media president Jamie Iannone said in a statement. "We're thrilled to keep in place our best prices ever and deliver great value to make reading more affordable."
