I keep reminding myself of reading with my 350 and can resist the pull of the Mini, however a few weeks ago I did buy the Glo but ended up returning it as I found the light too bright even at the lowest setting. While I had it I had no problems with side loaded books, (all of mine are side loaded), and all fonts, font sizes, line spacing and margins were adjustable as normal.
I guess your books were all epubs originally? My books are all in mobi/azw3 format and then converted to epub. The only sideloaded books that the glo handled well were epubs loaded via adobe digital editions. I know the books could have been fixed in calibre but it just seemed like a lot of messing about, considering I had a set up that worked perfectly well on the kindle. In the end I also returned my glo due to problems with the WiFi and battery.
