|Bottom line|| |
The Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight sets the standard for e-ink e-readers going forward and is well worth the extra money if you do a lot of nighttime reading.
The new touch-screen Nook is a major advancement over its predecessor and offers some real advantages over the 2010 Kindle.
While it doesn't necessarily beat the Kindle Paperwhite, the $119 Nook GlowLight is an excellent e-reader that's strongly worth considering if you don't want to buy into the Amazon ecosystem.
While the "all-new" Paperwhite may seem like an unspectacular upgrade on the surface, it's a clear improvement over the original Paperwhite and arguably the best e-reader currently available.
The Kobo Glo is an excellent Kindle alternative, especially for readers seeking EPUB compatibility and international options.
