The NOOK 6" Simple Touch eReader with GlowLight is great for reading. The glowlight alows me to read at any time of the day or night. Some books on nook are more expensive then on kindle, but not much difference overall. I love that the nook includes an sd slot for added storage. Great for traveling, built in wifi. Very easy to set up wifi function. The simple touch also has page turn buttons on both side as well as a menu button. You have a choice to touch screen or use page turn buttons to turn the pages. If you touch a word on screen and hold for 2 seconds a menu will pop up and you can look up the word, highlight and make notes. You can touch screen towards bottom of page for 2 seconds and glowlight will come on. The glow light has adjustable brightness also. Very easy to look up books with several categories to chose from. Overall a great Ereader if you enjoy a lot of reading.
I love my Nook and the reading light is a welcome bonus. The battery life is rated at up to 2 months and so far its living up to it's promise. It's just the right size to hold, lightweight and with just a light touch of my finger, it turns the pages or takes me to the dictionary, notes and other options. I bought the original Nook several years ago and it was heavy and the silly screen at the bottom never worked. They've made the new Nook intuitive and so easy to use. I download epub books from my library for most of my reading. I considered the Kindle, but Amazon has it set up so the library has to send the book to them first then they send it to you. Absolute nonsense. It's just a gimmick to keep track of what you read. The epub format opens up the wide range of ebooks available for free or nominal charges on the internet. I highly recommend it. I bought mine first then purchased this for my husband. He loves it too.
So easy to set up and use! Our power went out one night and I was able to keep reading the the GloLight! I went to o.co and got a nice (but inexpensive) cover so the front wouldn't get scratched (under $10) and found www.bookbub.com which sends out daily free/cheap books to get. I think I've got 50 books on already and spent a grand total of $12.00!! AND Consumer Reports recommends the Nook, too! Came fast and VERY well packed from Walmart.
I love this Nook, especially the GlowLight. At last I can read in bed without disturbing my husband. The battery seems to last a long time and I have no difficulty downloading books from the library. We are campers and it sure saves a lot of room not having to carry a box full of paperbacks for our summer trip.
I like eReaders because, after a long day working on the computer, I don't want to read on a tablet that looks like one too. Compared to tablets, eReader pages turn faster, the screen doesn't have the shiny reflection, and generally the battery lasts much longer. Altogether more soothing. All of the e-Ink readers have the same greyish background, not true white. This Nook overcomes that with a 'glowlight' that turns the background to true white when turned about on to about 15%. It's really nice; the Glowlight doesn't make it feel like a computer. The default font is very nice and highly legible. With a screen only slightly larger than my Sony eReader, I can view about twice as many words at one time. This is because the difference between medium and large font on the Sony is too great #I need glasses, I'm sure#, so on the Sony reader I have to change pages about twice as often. The Sony has better battery life - I was amazed by how long a charge lasted. However, the Nook's battery lasted me about 20 hours, and it fits better in my hands, is extremely lightweight, and the reading area looks terrific. I also love the rubber grip around the outside - the Nook doesn't slide out of my hands like the tablets or the Sony do. I'm kind of glad now that my dog broke my Sony, so I got to try this! Liked my Sony, but this is neat.
I love this Nook! The price was excellent, and it is easy to use. I bought it primarily for reading at night, and the GlowLight works great for that, but it is also a good screen for day time reading. No complaints whatsoever! Highly recommend if you don't want to spend a fortune on an e-reader, particularly if you will be reading at night.
I am pleasantly surprised at how much I am reading again! I LOVE my Nook! It is so convenient for reading at night! I didn't think I would like it as much as I do! It is easy on the eyes. It makes a perfect gift for someone who "has everything" and you don't know what to get them! It is affordable and a gift that keeps on giving! How great is that...to give someone the gift of books!!
I have been using the simple touch for about a year so when the time came to replace my wife's reader it was an easy chose. she reads a lot at night so went with the glowlight. she says it works well for reading in the dark
Bought as a gift for a college student, so far no complaints says it is wonderful
great products, all that I have bought from walmart is super good products.
I purchased the eReader for my granddaughter and she is very pleased with her gift. The Nook 6'' Simple Touch eReader with GlowLight is exactly what she wanted and expected.
Bought this for my adult daughter for reading. She is able to read clearly on a sunny day outside or in bed at night. Wonderful item!
We have had our 2 Nooks for about a month. I am very happy with the reader.
It took a little time to figure out how to use it but not too frustrating. I am reasonably electronics literate but we are full time rvers so do not always have wifi available. We do use an aircard for internet access & once we figured out the process of downloading the books to the computer then transferring to the Nook we were all set. Went to the library & found out how to borrow their ebooks & we are having a ball.
This reader is very basic but more than meets our needs to get books to read while we are on the road fulltime without the hassle of finding places to exchange books.
I have a Nook myself and my grandson is an avid reader so thought he would enjoy one too. I got a good price at Walmart for the Nook and my grandson loves the Nook!
I have had this for a couple of weeks. Hardly ever use the light and only do light reading...it constantly has a dead battery. Horrible...wish I never bought it.
B&N wants a blank check for their product. Be prepared for credit card, social security number requirements even to get a free book. Must be in a Wifi area to use it, otherwise worthless. Took it back after wasting four days full of agravation.
The Nook is very simple to use and the screen is very clear with no glare. The glow light is also great. Would definitely recommend to anyone who is wanting just an EReader and not a tablet.
I love, love, love my nook.... I have one of the original nooks, the nook color and this one... i loved it so much that I bought two more as gifts for my MIL and a dear friend.... If you are an avid reader, and want a simple easy to use e-reader then this is absolutely the one for you....
I bought it as a Christmas gift, so as far as I know it's a GREAT product.
No need to spend more money getting this at a store, order online and get this great product at a fraction of the price!
