"By far, the best e-reader!!!"5.0 starson by Chazzenheimer
Pros: 1) Almost perfectly uniform built-in lighting, while still having a battery life measured in weeks. Wow!
2) No distracting notifications from emails, etc.
3) Now the screen looks more white than gray! Much better contrast for ease of reading!!!
Cons: When highlighting a single word, I wish...
1)...a dictionary definition would automatically be furnished for the highlighted word.
2)...that one of the options would be to find other locations of that word (for looking up a character name).
Summary: For serious readers, this device is "the nut". This comes with all the functionality of the Nook Simple Touch, so it's touchscreen, meaning, for example, that by touching and holding a single word, you can be given the option of looking up the definition of that word in the built in dictionary.
What's also nice is that this device is not an app happy tablet. Serious readers don't want a tablet with distractions and temptations. This baby gets down to serious reading business. And only serious reading business.
So many times, even during the day, I'm in a room that's just barely dark enough to need a light to read a book. Borderline darkness. This Glowlight Nook solves the problem - you can turn on its light with a low intensity, just enough to make the page look perfectly bright. Further, it makes the page look more white, than gray, so the black type stands out bold and strong.
