In search of a way to read in the dark
I've tried head lamps and various clip-on lights on my eInk readers and haven't found anything that lights an eInk reader to my satisfaction. I got into ebooks long after the Sony 700 had come and gone. I've also tried the iPad and some of the small Android tablets; I don't have a problem with the backlighting but they're all a lot heavier than eInk readers and their battery life draws thirty inches of vacuum.
I'm trying out the Nook GlowLight now, and so far it scratches all my itches. I may never use a tablet as an eReader again.
