Seeking to ease the pain of those whose bedtime reading is keeping their spouses awake, Barnes & Noble's Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight delivers built-in illumination for its 6-inch E-Ink touch screen display (600 x 800). The GlowLight is adjustable, so you can tweak the display according to ambient light levels. At under seven ounces, it's lightweight and offers a battery life of one month (based on use).
The Wi-Fi e-reader also offers a built-in glare protector, adjustable text with seven font sizes and 2GB of internal memory (there's a microSD slot on hand as well for expansion).
Reviewers swooned over the GlowLight feature on this Nook. While noting that e-readers are more than a matter of specs - content ecosystems matter more - they hailed the new Nook as the e-reader to beat.
