Verge score: 8.3

The Nook SImple Touch with GlowLight is essentially a backlit version of the Nook Simple Touch that was released in November 2011. It retains all the same internal and exterior specifications adding the aforementioned backlit E-ink display while somehow shaving 7% of the device's total weight.
