Barnes and Noble's new Nook goes easy on the eyes
E-books are increasingly popular, but how easy are they on your eyes?
Barnes and Noble's new Nook reader is designed to make reading easier in both sunshine and darkness. It's the first e-reader to combine the look of real ink, with a built in light.
"As somebody who does like to read in bed from time to time, I like having the light built in. Yeah, you can probably spend less for a lamp, but that's an awfully cheap lamp," said Ed Baig from USA Today.
A light was the feature most requested by Nook users. The new one costs about $139.
