On a couple of over 40C degree evenings over the past few weeks here in Sydney, my Kobo Glo has been the only light on in the house, and that's because I was sitting in the lounge room reading my book on it
The Glo didn't heat up at all, although I placed it on a cushion just at the right distance and right height for me not to have to hold it, but sufficient to just touch it to turn the page.
Re the original question - I would only buy a lit ereader again - because I need the light and the small reading lights just don't do the job.
I'm waiting for Sony's lit ereader to be released and I'll get that. Kobo's firmware is still a work in progress imo.
