Yes, I am more interested in reading than anything else - however for about $100 more, it is tempting. My biggest concerns are with eye strain when reading at night/sunny day and just as importantly, the extra weight that the NC has over the NTS. If those aren't serious issues with the NC, it may be worth a second look.
