I'd go so far as to say that a reader without those two apps is nearly useless to me, although it might be possible to get by with the inbuild reader app if I can get Calibre Library working smoothly.
How much work is it to get Android Play apps working on the STR?
Also after a few weeks use, is everybody happy reading in the dark or semi-dark with the Glowlight?

has a perfect guide for rooting the Nook GL. I used it, and I am delighted with my Nook. The Glowlight function works with all the apps I installed, and yes, I am happy reading either in the dark or under direct sunlight with my Nook GL. I just wish the display will never be damaged, so I keep it in its cover all the time and am super careful with it.
