I'm not sure if it's the cold weather that drains the battery quicker than it should. I carry it around in a normal canvas bag during the day, and was reading it 3 hours on average daily (with more on some days during longer train rides). Towards the end of the second week, it was showing 59% which was decent, but the screen froze in the middle of the third week. Turns out the battery was flat, and I was not even reading as frequently (why? blame Amsterdam).

Fortunately I had some books on my iPhone so I was re-reading them, or I'd go crazy.
It could be the cold. On a recent trip to Alberta I left my nook touch in the car overnight, and in the morning it showed no battery, though it had more than 50% the previous night. I put it in the charger, and it quickly went up to more than 50%, so it looks like the battery gauge may be off in cold conditions.
