    I am shopping for my first ebook reader so I am in need of opinions on them.

    What I am looking for:
    1) As I mentioned this is my first ebook so I don't have any investments tied into a certain ecosystem.
    2) I am in Canada so my options are somewhat limited
    3) I just want an e-reader nothing more. I already have an iPad so no need for another tablet except (maybe) a Nexus 7.
    4) An ereader that is good for reading with the lights off.

    I have read reviews on the Nook, Kindle, and Kobo; but just like everything else it is a mixed bag. So any useful information is greatly appreciated.

    If you JUST want it for an ereader than get the cheap ones.

    Nook Simple touch with Glowlight so you can read at day and night at BARNES & NOBLE | NOOK Simple Touch
    Kindle Paperwhite at Kindle Paperwhite - Touch Screen Ereader with Built-In Light
    Kobo Glo at Kobo Glo

    I'd plump for a Kobo Glo as it has consistent lighting that puts the Kindle to shame.

    I have a Nook Color and it works well as an ereader. You can get them cheaper because there are several others out I believe right now.
