by Angela Nazworth | August 13, 2012 9:24 am

Monday is off to a good start for Barnes & Noble (NYSE:BKS[1]). The bookseller has announced price cuts to its e-reader tablet that will make consumers happy, while delivering a kick in the shins to archenemy[2] Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN[3]).

Here’s a rundown of Barnes & Noble’s new pricing structure for Nook tablets.

The price cuts — the latest salvo in the tablet wars — mean the less expensive model of the Nook tablet now retails for $20 less than Amazon’s 8-gigabyte Kindle Fire.

As far as tablets go, Apple‘s (NASDAQ:AAPL[4]) iPad is still the market’s best-seller.
