Same here. I read in bed and also in transports so it's a VERY convenient function. I don't use the touchscreen that much though, just for highlight content time to time.
I regret than the 600 won't have the lighting feature but in other hand I won't be too tempted to buy one
btw, it's really weird that 700 will be available in Ireland. I guess it's the lag between US and Europe, I can't help wondering when they will sell reader in Asia then
