NOOK Simple Touch GlowLight. 4.5 5 176 181
Rooted Nook This and excellent e-reader and superb value for money. Having ?rooted? the device to access the Android operating system I now have the Kindle app for Android installed as well. So now it?s a Barnes and Noble Nook AND a Kindle ? best of both worlds. This also allows you to install Opera Mini to allow use as a web browser (keeping in mind the e-ink screen!). Most other Android apps from Google Play can also now be installed giving you a basic Android tablet First and foremost though, this is a very well designed product which is comfortable and light to hold and as an e-reader does exactly what it says on the tin. 13 June 2013
I bought this for someone overseas. So far so good 11 June 2013
Fantastic and easy to use I was reading my first book within the hour. Excellent purchase, easy to use and backlight is essential. 11 June 2013
Excellent storage Now have 26 books available to read in our motor-caravan. Couldn't possibly take this number on holiday. Will I read them all? Unlikely. But at least I can choose...and delete those that I don't like. 10 June 2013
Good value Easy to hold and use. My kids love them. Nice and light. Initially a bit of a pain to set up. Great that you can access the local library books for free unlike Kindle 05 June 2013
Bedtime reading Great for reading in bed at night so I won't disturb the other half. Easy to download books and to add more from the computer. 04 June 2013
Fantastic! I wanted to buy an e-book reader for a long time, so after seeing the Nook at a discounted price, I decided to go for it. Originally, I wanted the Nook Simple Touch, but it was out of stock, so I decided to get the GlowLight, as the price was quite good as well. And I'm happy I made that decision, because it allows me to read at night, wich actually is the best time for me to read. It is also very easy to use, I'm delighted with my purchase! The only "but" is that you won't be able to download anything from Nook Barnes & Noble book store, as you have to be physically in the U.S.A. to acces to it, wich it was a big dissapointment for me at the beginning, although you can buy from any other online store. Overall, I am very satisfied with my Nook. 04 June 2013
Best price/performance ratio. It's the best and most comfortable to hold design. The display is great. It's not as locked-down as the most famous e-book reader. It has a micro SD card slot. The price is better. If you're not a stickler for absolutely perfect and uniform display lighting, this is the one to get. 29 May 2013
Excellent Book Reader The nook reader is easy to use and the backlight is a godsend. It is easy to load books.The only downside is the reader is preformatted so only 250mb is available for your own books the rest is reserved for books bought from the Nook Store. 29 May 2013
Really Good Purchase I occasionally read books on my tablet but that was getting slow and old. When I saw the Nook on offer I thought I would get one. I haven't put my Nook down since I got it. It's really easy to use and easily to import your books using calibre. I would recommend it to anyone. 29 May 2013
poor seconds difficult even to install. no prior information about theprobable difficulty of getting any reasonable connection to wifi without expense. 28 May 2013
Okay for the price At the discounted price it represents fair value but I think other makes are better although more expensive. 23 May 2013
As good as any on the market Easy to set up, even for an oldie like me, down loding books is child's play. Good price, works well. Lets me read in bed without disturbing the other half. Very. pleased with my purchase. .. 21 May 2013
nook great product. easy to use great battery life. defo recommend to friends. 21 May 2013
Logging in The Nook itself is lovely, but is led by trying to get you to buy nook products i.e. books etc and I had great difficulty in logging into our free council library, I suceeded eventually. Tje glowlight is perfect not too bright. As I only wanted it to read books it suits me very well. 21 May 2013
very good nice item easy to use clear print less eye strain plus nice and light can read for hours. 21 May 2013
Really useful I am really delighted with my Nook. It was so easy to start up, purchase books and use. With increasing joint problems I am so delighted with the lack of effort to hold and turn pages. 21 May 2013
nook Fantastic to read on especialy at night, which is when I tend to read 18 May 2013
Amazing ereader I am a Sony erreader fan so when mine gave up the ghost I did extensive research on all available ereaders on the market, the kindle I didnt like for the ebook availibility, but the nook with its sd card slot, I could buy from any where, if you buy from the nook shop they download straight to your nook through wifi. Love the light for night reading. The feel is a soft rubbery feel and so comfy, so glad I got this instead of another Sony ereader, its perfect, lighter than the Sony too. 16 May 2013
