All of the bad reviews for this poor device got me a little worried about getting it. Let me clear things up. The guy who said you can't delete books from the nook is TOTALLY wrong. In your library, all you have to do is double tap the book and hit archive. And to people who say it can't do as many things as it should, it's an EREADER. eREADERS are for reading. If you want to listen to music, get an iPod. Last time I checked iPod shuffles are like 50 dollars. Trust me, I'm a musician and i love music too, but the nook without music is fine. The same thing goes for games. You get an ereader to read, not to play games. iPads, iPhones, and iPod touches a great for games. I have a nook and an ipod, an im surviving. Now the only other bad thing I've really heard is that the glowlight hassle elope tears and holes in it. I've only had mine for a few days so I can't say whether or not that will happen. So far, it hasn't.

Now, to get the the real point of a review. I find that the nook is very comfortable to hold, and it looks very good. At first I thought the grippy black/ grey paint would attract dust and get things like lint and dog fur stuck to it like silicone cases do, but I was so wrong. The grip makes it very comfortable to hold, and it's not at all squishy or dust attracting. The indent on the back of the nook makes it even better to hold.

The screen looks very good to me, and I love love love the glowlight. I also love how easy it is to dowload library books. You download some adobe program to your computer, find your library on the Internet, and presto! Jus download the book, plug in your nook, and you're done!

Over all, I simply love the nook. It looks great, feels great, and works great. It does exactly what it's supposed to, nothing more, nothing less.

Also, don't buy the nook from Amazon. They're charging people 169 when the price anywhere else is 139. Go to Bestbuy, Walmart, or Barnes and Noble.

I am an avid reader and I usually read in bed at night. My wife has to be up very early so she's trying to sleep while I'm reading. I was previously using a Nook Simple Touch without the glowlight and an M-Edge reading light. It was a good combination, but even on the lowest setting the reading light would create enough ambient light in the room to disturb my wife's sleep. I thought about getting the glowlight Nook but heard about the Kindle Paperwhite and decided to wait until I could try them both.

I bought a Kindle Paperwhite at the same time as the Nook Glowlight and tested both for about 2 weeks. In the end, I decided on returning the Kindle and keeping the Nook. There are a few major reasons why.

First, the screen on the Nook is better even though you can easily see the light source at the top. It has a more pleasant color tone for reading at night and other than the lighted spots at the top, the rest of the screen is very even. Not so on the Kindle Paperwhite. It has uneven greenish colored blotches all over the screen which completely detract from your reading experience. I've read reviews of others who said they didn't have this problem, but there are many more which say they see the spots. Also, the lack of physical buttons on the Kindle was a big mistake. The touch screen works wonderfully, but sometimes it's nice just being able to hold the Nook in one hand and barely move your thumb to make page turns. Getting books on both devices is very easy with a wifi connection or through USB on your computer. I tend to borrow more books from the library than purchase and you just browse your local library website on the computer, then hook up the Nook to transfer files over USB.

I bought one of the first Nook Touches in 2011, and have been very happy with it (aside from occasional image ghosting issues). When my wife kept taking mine to read, I decided to get her one, and the Nook w/ Glowlight had just came out.

The internal light works great, and we happy with the device for a few weeks. Then one night it accidentally slid off her nightstand about 18 inches onto carpeting. The next night she turned it on and two very obvious cracks were in the screen (only visible when Glowlight is on). The cracks weren't subtle either, but are much brighter than the normally visible glow. When the Glowlight was off, you couldn't tell there was any problem.

I looked it up on the internet, and found a page where someone had a picture of the exact same problem. So I took the Nook back to B&N, and they wouldn't let me exchange it or get a refund. I didn't give up, however, and decided to demonstrate how fragile the screen is. I held my keys over the Nook (about 6 inches above it) and dropped them. 3 more cracks instantly appeared. The manager then let me return the device, and I got a normal (non-glowing) Nook instead. (FYI: The newer Nooks do not have the occasional ghosting issue, and non-glowing Nooks are quite sturdy in my experience).

If they had not let me return it, I would have taken it home and recorded that same thing happening over and over again, then uploaded the video to YouTube. When the device worked, it was awesome, but having such an obviously flawed design that can't withstand minor impacts would seem to invite a class-action lawsuit once more people experience the same issue.
