  1. I’m really tempted with the GlowLight at £69. Would someone care to give me their guess as to if these drop in prices from B&N could be the signal that they will launch an improved lighted e-reader soon? I read somewhere that they use to launch new devices around June. I would really appreciate your thoughts and ideas.
