Today Barnes and Noble announced their new Nook eReader, which is strikingly similar to the “old” Nook eReader. The updated model adds a new feature that aims to solve the last major problem with eInk eReaders: you need a light if you want to read in the dark. The new Nook adds a feature dubbed GlowLight which lights up the eInk display with an adjustable, easy-on-the-eyes light that is bright enough to read by but not enough to disturb someone next to you.
