I agree. The battery status is more of an exponential type, always slow in the beginning.
But the OP stated that her Glo was down within 4 days without reading. In comparison, I was reading for 4 days and the battery reached 82%.

To go further, I finished the book.
- 10,6 hours in 5 days
- 1010 page turns
- Battery is 71%

I won't take that as a reference in the future, but to me it means that there is something wrong with the OP's Glo behaviour.

To each its own, I guess. As long as what you do works for you, and what another does works too, well all for the best
