Picked up my ST at John Lewis today. The lady at the collections counter told me that they'd sold a lot of them over the last couple of days.

I'll have a play with it when I get back from this weekend's camping trip, but at that price you can't go wrong.

I ordered a NOOK ST on-line, but then I also picked up a GlowLight from Sainsbury's, since I had a Sainsbury's voucher. The GlowLight's a birthday present, so I won't be trying it out until next week!

I finally weakened and ordered the Simple Touch from Waitrose, hubby picks it up tomorrow for me. I want to see what the NOOK is like plus I have 180 books in my Nook library due to the Fictionwise transfer. I couldn't justify the extra £40 for the Glow though, not for curiosity. Just need to get a cheap case now.

Edited to say I uped my order to the Glowlight. I have a few too many Kindle cases plus I'll sell my Kindle Keyboard wifi to help fund it. I saw a you tube video on PDFs on a non routed Glow using the stock PDF functionality, if the reflow works like that for me then the Nook is worth its weight in Gold.

I received my Nook Simple touch this morning. I've registered it and I'm now charging it up. The bulid quality is quite impressive, not loaded any books on there yet, will do so later on when it's finished charging.

I've recieved mine as well, its charging up nicely. I have registered with NOOK.UK and my 178 books from Fictionwise showed up. I have already loaded an epub, and 10 PDF's, all text only with just a cover picture, some bought and some fan fic and I'm so happy I can now read PDF's on an ereader, text size 3 or 4 is perfect. No issues at all so far, I've even created a few shelves.

My KPW will always be my main reader I wanted the Nook for PDF reflow and so far its perfect out of the box. I got it from John Lewis so I have a two year warrently as well.

I've loaded about 100 books onto it. Nice and easy and straight forward. Now arranging those books into shelves. So far I'm quite impressed with it. It's responsive and intuitive to use. I also have a Kindle paperwhite which I can't see this replacing but it is a lovely device. Appears to be stable, responsive and the build quality is excellent. I will always love my kindle the most, however so far overall it seems to be better than a kobo.


Have you tried the glo light out yet? How is it compared to the Paperwhite light?

The KPW is a better light imo, its cleaner and has no blue strip along the top, but I have no issues with the Glowlight, it does what I need it to do which is allow me to read the screen in low light. I only really want the Nook for the PDFs tbh so I can't see me using it more than my KPW anyway. I was going to get just the Simple Touch but I'm glad I got the glow. I justified it as 1.67 a month for two years, I could spend that on batteries for a clip on light!

Thanks. I have seen some comparison videos on the glow light and the paperwhite and you could see the blue tinge on the nook on there, was just wondering if it was any different in real life. The light on the KPW is pretty nice. I tried the kobo glo out before getting the paperwhite and found that the paperwhite had the better light. I'm quite happy with the simple touch, it's well built and works well. It's a shame that the nooks are not doing well because I think they are quality readers.

I like what I see so far, and the Nook has potential its just the settings etc are much more basic than on the Kindle, so many things I take for granted as standard i can't do on the Nook. The Kindle functionality is cleaner and can do more generally. For me its just the PDF reflow is the one thing the Nook has that the Kindle doesn't.

If Nook want to play with Amazon they need to up their game with the software as well as the hardware.

I agree they could improve on the menu options. My only gripe is that you cannot alter the page refresh rate. I think I read in a review that it's set to refresh every 6 pages. I wish you could set it to refresh every page (like you can on the kindle) as there is a bit of ghosting. I know some prefer to have it set at every 6 pages so they don't get the black flash, but I hardly notice it and prefer it to ghosting.

I actually spotted about half a dozen pin prick holes this morning in the glowlight so hubby is taking it back for a refund. As I only want it to read PDFs on I'll just get the Simple Touch and use a clip on light. If Nook bring out a newer model that's much improved then I'd defiantly be interested in it, but it needs to be as good as the KPW with PDF reflow.

I use Calibre and it automatically converts the .txt files (to .epub) when synchronizing with my Nook.
