My Review of the Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight, on


Nook Simple Touch with GlowLightWith built-in lighting, the GlowLight beats the Kindle Touch – if like me you tend to be a nocturnal reader.

However, with full-color, multifunctional tablets descending in price to $199 and below, only hardcore bookworms may opt for a dedicated e-reader. (Nothing wrong with saving all your battery power for reading, after all – especially if your phone acts as a tablet already.)

Here’s a snip from my GlowLight review on

While E Ink enthusiasts have always bragged about E Ink screens’ superior readability in direct sunlight, they have always lost the night versus the backlit LCDs in laptops and tablets. Since E Ink simulates paper, e-readers with screens based on the technology have needed a supplemental book light to read in darkness. The GlowLight Nook (as we’ll call it in this review) makes a strong case for winning over the bedtime set versus traditional E Ink readers. No need to disturb your bunkmate or your neighbor on night flights: You’ve got your own lighting.
