The Nook specs still claim over a month of battery life with the light on. It's half of what they claim with the light off, but still not bad at all.
With GlowLight on at the default brightness setting, a single charge will last over 1 month with wireless off based on ½ hour of daily reading and a 1 page refresh per minute.

Battery life depends on device settings, usage, and many other factors.
