Taking each of these eReaders' features and functionality into consideration, which one is best? It depends on what you need and how you read. Read our in-depth comparison between the Amazon Kindle Touch and the Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight to help you decide which one you should buy.
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.
