Last Sunday I finally checked out the Glo at Target. I actually didn't think the light distribution was noticeably better than the PW; in fact, I liked it less. I get that it has more LEDs, but I found the GlowLight's top-down light cones way more distracting than the Paperwhite's bottom-up light cones. But I did like its physical page turn controls and the fact that it has real page numbers. I can't figure out why Amazon still can't provide page numbers.
The one you saw at Target, was it a Nook GlowLight or a Kobo Glo? You mention both in your description so I'm curious as this is possibly the first comparison I seen of the PW and KG.
