  • Q: Can this be used in the dark? Will I be able to read my books in bed while everyone else is asleep and it's fully dark?  (2 Answers)

    • Best answerYes, This is device is great for that. Not only is this less intrusive to other people around you but also great for reading before bed. The idea of these devices is there is no backlight so it is lit from around the edges more like light shining on the page of a book. The light settings go from 0-24, usually in a normal reading setting during the day I have mine set anywhere from 20 - 24 but then at night when the lights are low reading before bed I set it between 8 - 10. It is very simple to adjust the brightness while reading.

  • Q: Does this reader have the option to change the lighting for nighttime reading?  (5 Answers)

    By Sassy 

    • Best answerThere is NO nighttime feature or mode on the device at all. If you want the nighttime feature, you will need to get the Barnes & Noble Nook Glowlight 3 e-reader. Also the closest nighttime feature on the device is called the inversion of from white with black letters to black with white letters. You can go to the 3 vertical dots on the right side on the Home Screen. Tap on the dots. Then you will see the word "Settings". Tap on the word "Settings". Then you will see the word "Accessibility". Tap on the word "Accessibility". There you will see that you can swipe the toggle switch to change the color of the e-book page from black to white or white to black. Please Note: That if you change it from white to black, ALL screens on the e-reader, and that includes the Home Screen and Settings Menu, etc. and the e-book page inside of your e-book, will be ALL changed to black with white letters.

    • Best answerYes it is backlit like a phone (or edge lit). It doesnt strain your eyes or keep you up at night like a phone. The brightness is also easily adjusted.
