Thanks for that bit of info. I'm considering a front lit reader, and I think my preferences are like yours in that I tend to prefer the dimmest possible screen in a darkened room. I always turn the screen on my smartphone all the way down in bed after lights out. That's for my own eyes and also to decrease the chance of disturbing my wife, who is a very light sleeper.
