Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight

The Nook Simple Touch may not be as svelte as the Amazon Kindle, but that's why it is the superior ­digital paperback: Your hand nestles into its voluptuous curves for more tactile, comfortable reading sessions. The latest version, the Nook Simple Touch with ­Glowlight, features LEDs embedded in the top of the e-ink screen, which evenly illuminate its surface without harsh backlighting. It's the book light reinvented, and makes the world's best e-reader even better. [$140;]
