Nook Glowlight Instructions

The Nook Glowlight, not to be confused with the Nook Moonlight, was released in 2013. It works with Adobe Digital Editions and can be used with the eBooks from the NHDB service.

How to tell the two devices apart? The Moolight has physical buttons on the left and right side of the device for turning pages and an SD expansion slot. The Glowlight does not.

Note that the Nook Glowlight Plus (released fall 2015) is not a compatible device.
