Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch with Glow Light eReader Review
While the new Nook's light does enable night reading, there is the predictable tradeoff in battery life.
If you are looking for an eReader with the best hardware, currently the Barnes & Noble Nook SimpleTouch with Glow Light is it. While it's not a radically different design than previous eReaders, the addition of an LED lighting system offers bookworms who like to read at night an affordable solution to a screen that relies on ambient light to be seen. While this should probably have been around a long time ago, it's a sensible addition to the eReader archetype, and from a device standpoint, there is no better eReader on the market than the Barnes & Noble Nook SimpleTouch with Glow Light.
But hold on: there's more than hardware that counts towards how well an eReader works for you, and in this case it's a big deal. While the Nook has some of the best support from its store on the market, it still lacks in some areas like book lending to compete with the current heavyweight Amazon. Still, if you can convert your files using free software, you can easily port them to the Barnes & Noble Nook SimpleTouch with Glow Light no sweat.
If you're looking for an eReader that has has the potential to be something more, as well as enable you to read your eBooks at night, the Barnes & Noble Nook SimpleTouch with Glow Light is probably a good fit for you. While there isn't as good lending support on the Nook, avid readers will appreciate an eReader that can be used in any light.
