Why I am avoiding the nook GlowLight [2013 nook GlowLight]

Um note...don't drop stuff on your ereader! This device is very rugged! I had my old one for year and 1/2. In my purse often. Nothing...no dings, scratches etc. new Glowlight feels even more rugged! Just don't leave it on the floor or somewhere where things can fall on it! Come on, it's an electronic! You wouldn't put your cell phone on the floor and then be all surprised if it cracked when you dropped something on it!

Then I saw this article. With this information. ABORT!!! Just gonna buy the Simple touch. Why B&N did not test how fragile this thing was gonna be is beyond me. While there is no screen damage, and you won't notice it in daylight, When you turn on the glow light itself, U can see the damage. Just a warning.

Please note:

This is a new thread (with the two posts above removed from the older thread, which was about the older Nook Glo, and now incorporated into this new thread).

The other, older, thread on the older reader has been closed.

Thank you.
