Question regarding the Kindle Fire HD 8.9" : having never had a tablet or e-reader before, does this model have backlit lighting when reading a book? I was told that is very important when wanting to read at night and not wanting to disturb anyone.

All the Fires are backlit like a computer screen. Some people find reading on a backlit device hard on their eyes and it's been found to screw with sleep cycles.

If you're looking for a device for reading, the Kindle Paperwhite has in eInk screen with front lighting that does not shine in your eyes. It has the added benefit of being easy to see in the sun.
