I think B&N made a top notch e-reader. The Nook Glowlight 3 has features that the most expensive A**zon e-reader has and one most useful feature it does not have. The Nook Glowlight 3 is light weight and well balanced which makes it easy to hold and turn pages in one hand. The page turning buttons give you a positive tactile experience, clicking with each push. You can also use your finger to swipe pages to turn pages, but I like not having to put my fingers on the screen which can leave smudges and prints on the screen. I have found that pages load quickly. Its 6" screen resolution is 300dpi matching the resolution on the pricier A**zon e-readers. The e-reader has a raised 'n' logo button for waking up the device or returning to home. But it is the orange-tinted light is what really sets the B&N e-reader apart. The automatically adjusting light makes reading at night a much more pleasurable experience and is very easy on the eyes. I like how the glow gradually increases as it gets later in the evening. You can choose to turn it off and on at will. This is the best e-reader B&N has made to date.

I've had the original Nook since it first came out and did not want to change it. I liked the old because it was bigger and the e-book covers were in colors. Barnes and Nobles stopped servicing the original in June 2018 and I had no choice to go with a new Nook. I hesitantly selected Nook glow light 3. Guess what....I love it. It is so light, the screen size which I originally thought was small it's just perfect, the light automatically changes as it gets darker and finger changing of the pages on the screen is awesome. The only thing that I miss from my old one is the color feature for the book covers and the arrangement of my shelves. The new one is not letting me do it the way I had it before or maybe I haven't figured it out yet. If you are hesitating which Nook to buy and you are a serious reader like I am and want to be able to read outside, on the Beach, in the Park etc. I recommend this Nook without any hesitation. You will love it like I did.

Best Nook e-reader (versus tablet) yet! I started out with the Nook Simple Touch that was great, but clipping on an accessory light for reading at night left a bit to be desired. After it finally died, I bought the Glow Light Plus (which my wife was happy to get!), which is very good, though the elimination of page buttons and slick metal back in order to achieve water proofing was not my favorite trade off. Yes, water proof is nice, but never was an issue for me anyway, I prefer the soft touch surface, page buttons and physical Nook button on the Glow Light 3. The additional storage space is good to have, and I really like the return to the Simple Touch design overall. The glow light illumination is great and I really like the night mode lighting, very easy on the eyes in lower light levels. Handling is better than ever: The only quibble that I have so far is that B&N only offers a book cover for the GL3. I much prefer a sleeve, as when reading I much prefer to use this without a cover.
