Traditionally the inability to read in the dark has been the big downside to E Ink displays.
Barnes & Noble is selling the Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight $119 in the US. The tablet weighs under 7 ounces and despite the backlight is one of the lightest tablets on the market.

SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— An Amazon leak appears to have shown the company is doing the inevitable by readying an unlimited subscription service for e-books as well as audio books.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
