Kobo Glo/Nook STR Glow/Others?
I have a Nook Classic ... I love it ... mostly. I'd like a built in light and I know newer readers are smaller and lighter in weight.
I like that I can read just about any e-book file except the Kindle.
I looked at my mom's Nook STR (non-glow) and, while I liked the overall feel and user environment, I simply couldn't stand the library organization. It makes SO much more sense to select a book and then choose what shelves it belongs on rather than pick a shelf and wade through 200 books to find the book you want ... ugh!
I looked into Calibre, but I really like the idea of doing the library management on the device rather than the computer ... when I finish a book at the drs office, I'd like to move it to "finished" right then.
So, now I'm looking at the Kobo Glo .... I can sideload my B&N books on it, correct?
(BTW, I don't want a Kindle, my local library doesn't lend Kindle books, just ePubs)
The one thing that trips me up is the page refresh ... maybe I'm dense here, but I read for hours on my Nook and I've never noticed a screen flash except when changing screens ... like after choosing a book to open or when it goes to sleep. I've seen a video of the Kobo Glo in action and the screen flash seems very distracting.
So .... I'm looking for eInk, touch, built in light, a library management that allows me to define shelves (or collections or whatever they are going to call it) in a logical manner ... select a book and select the shelf (or shelves) it belongs on. and preferably decent battery life ... I charge my Classic twice a week. (w/Wifi off).
I want to be able to read B&N books, library ePubs, secure e-reader files (from Fictionwise), and pdfs. I don't mind sideloading everything ... 2/3 of what I have on my Nook Classic are non-B&N books.
Anything else (besides Nook STR Glow and Kobo Glo) I should look at?
