Light on

The $139 Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight uses patent-pending lighting technology. You can also dim the light to avoid bothering a bed partner who's trying to sleep.

Same design

Except for the integrated light, the new Nook Simple Touch looks the same as the original Nook Simple Touch, which remains on the market for $99.

More sensitive

Barnes & Noble says it has improved the performance of the touch screen.

Back to back

The new Nook has the same carbon-colored back. The device retains the SD card slot for adding memory.

Summer reading

Like the old Nook, the new Nook's e-ink display is designed for outdoor reading.
