Summary: The Kobo Glo offers a good reading experience with an extraordinarily bright backlight and a large selection of content. However, the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite offers less expensive books, more social options and the ability to lend your e-books to friends and family; plus it costs $10 less and fits more text on the screen. With a price tag of $129, the Kobo Glo backlight and gamified reading experience help this e-reader stand out, but it doesn't unseat the champ.
Pros: Brighter and more even backlight than Kindle or Nook, Large e-book selection, Unique Reading Life Stats
Cons: E-books more expensive than competition, Can't share book passages or lend books, Very small periodical selection
