Summary: Had a Kobo Touch Ereader previously and loved it so much, decided to upgrade to Kobo Glow. Love the inbuilt light, can now read anywhere, anytime. Battery life is great and the wi-fi synch works well. Recommend getting the sleep cover as well.
Summary: I purchased my Kobo eReader because I was reading books on my iPad, but found the battery was running out too quickly. With the Kobo eReader, the battery life is fantastic! It lasts for many weeks, depending on how often it is used, and if the backlight is on or not.
Kobo Glo E-reader With Built-in Comfortlight Technology

Excerpt: I have already got the kobo touch, The kobo glow is more or less the same, but with a back light, Having said that, I have found that it responds a lot quicker to the touch, Very happy though, I tried to use the cover off the kobo touch, but it is to large, the kobo glow is just a fraction smaller.
Summary: I am very pleased with my unit. As a night Security Guard, I get lots of time to read in subdued lighting and the screen lights up well and makes it easy to read. Do buy a little case for it....easy to handle. The unit shuts off at last page read and is ready to go with a touch of the on button.
Summary: Been using it for a month now and love it. The backlight on Glo gives it a lot more usability. Much easier to use than my comparatively heavy tablet plus it does not have the shiny screen which makes the tablet useless in brightly lit areas. Well worth the little extra to get the Glo.
Summary: I got the Kobo Glo for my birthday and after reading all the reviews of the other Kobos i wasn't quite sure how is was going to perform. It was alittle confusing at first but as I got used to the controls it was the best.
Summary: Very happy with this e-reader. It was set up in under a minute. The screen is very clear and easy to look at. The light for night reading is adjustable and works perfectly. I was able to read for long periods with no discomfort. The touch screen works great; it's very responsive and quick.
