    Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by does what it says on the can i recently bought the Nook simple touch glowlight for my wife's birthday after seeing it on the TV. was not too happy that the click and collect option was not available but ASDA are looking into that, waiting in for delivery was a pain but once arrived i was pleased. the nook was easy to set up though i had to do it at work as i did not have wifi at home. Loading books took seconds to do and it is so easy to use and read. i ordered a cover from Nook, but that has still to be shipped even after 2 calls to chase, it is still in factory 8 days after order. now got wifi at home and so easy to get books, too easy as wife thinks i am made of money. i am thinking of getting one for me to use i am that impressed. 19 November 2012
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Does what it says on the tin A nice simple design that feels like a well maid product. GOOD - -The Navigation is straight forward. -Pages are easy to switch between. -Set up was nice and easy. -The glowlight is not overpowering to the eye so reading is a pleasure. BAD - -When purchasing a book i had issues reading it as no text would show up at all. It tok 2 restarts for the book to finally load. - Once card details are implemented books can be bought with a click of a button which is bad if the nook gets into he hands of somebody it shouldnt. All in all a simple yet effective e-reader. 13 December 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by great for reading in bed Wanted an e-reader so did some research and a trip to town to look at the three different makes I was interested in. Only wanted the item specifically for reading, so chose a basic black and white screen image one (no apps and games etc). I chose the Nook against the other two products because it was so comfortable in the hand, the surrounding edge was warm to the touch because it has like a rubber feel to it. The others were cold to the touch and felt a little heavier. The added bonus is the GlowLight too which can be set at your level for reading. I used the wifi to download a couple of 'Free' e-books from Barnes and Noble, no problem, took seconds to do.If you haven't got wifi only a computer you can also download via your usb cable (which is provided) straight to your e-reader. Can't comment on this way because I haven't tried it. Main thing is, it is easy to use. 11 December 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by would encourage most people back to reading Have only used the Nook Glowlight for a short time but very impressed. The back lighting really does make it easy to read in low light. Downloading books is very easy. The touch screen is very responsive. Would recommend. 11 December 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by spot on First let me say hats off to ASDA for the prompt and excellent service AND competitive prices: you are there when I need you! NOOK® Simple Touch GlowLight - which I purchased on-line from ASDA for Christmas for my Grandaughter aged 12 years - is an excellent piece of technology and really brings the whole ereader thing up to date. It seemed a natural follow on from the two KOBO onyx that I orignally bought for daughters from ASDA last Christmas - on-line - which are still enjoyed and I purchased cases, lights and accessories for them this Christmas - on - line. A friend and I actually trolled round town too, comparing prices: came home and bought on-line at ASDA because no-one matched them. i will always spend that sometimes annoying time comparing on-line, but over the last year in my experience 'I start and finish at ASDA'. 26 December 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Nook Simple Touch Glowlight This was a gift for my daughter and she was highly delighted with it as she travels and reads a lot. The product is slim, lightweight, which makes it much better than weighing your suitcase down with heavy books when travelling, and a comfortable size to hold. Its many features were exactly what she required and being able to read in bed without upsetting her partner is a bonus. I would thoroughly recomment this product to every avid reader. 10 January 2013
