More fragile or not, I am not going back to a non-lit screen. I'm reading much more with the NWGL than I did before, and that's what is important to me.

My impression of the Nook ST with glowlight is that it is a KEEPER! I tried reading on my iLiad with a night light, or my Sony PRS-T1 with its case light and nothing compares to the LCD experience as does reading on my NSTG. Its variable glow intensity makes it easy to adapt to darken rooms to suit ones preferences.
Even though I gather that it may be fragile and susceptible to damage, I try to protect it as best I can with a sturdy cover and GREAT respect. Much the same as I did with my first ebook reader, the RCA REB1200. It was never crushed, sandwiched, man-handled nor left anywhere where it was exposed to "accidents waiting to happen".
I revere my NSTG with that same respect as I am thrilled to be able to finally read in bed with an eink device that is better than an LCD device.
