We have a soft spot for e-book readers in our hearts. They are one of the very few pieces of technology, that do not participate in the constant and endless run for specs, power and functionality. They are designed for books, with readers in mind. It's obvious that newest devices are better then their predecessors, but even those still serve their purpose very well. Barnes & Noble Nook GlowLight, the latest addition to the family, carries the torch of the tradition and offers attractive reading features at an affordable price.
The device looks very plain and minimalistic. Its light, rounded casing is made of white plastic, with a gray frame adding an elegant touch. Inside, there's an anti-glate 6-inch E Ink Pearl screen at the resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels, 4GB of internal storage sufficient for carrying around 2000 books, built-in Wi-Fi and an efficient battery capable of powering the device for up to 8 weeks on a single charge. As its name suggests, Nook GlowLight's display is illuminated with a dispersed light that makes the device perfect for reading in dim light or total darkness.
