    Default Screen Brightness

    I searched the user guide and didn't find any info on this. Is there a way to change the brightness of the reading screen? Not the touch-screen... found that setting pretty easily The reading screen seems soooooo dark to me... uncomfortably dark. I'd just like to brighten it a teensy bit if anyone knows how.

    Thanks!

    the only effective way is to add external light. Take it into direct sunlight and see how much clearer and easier it is to read. The nook has no backlight. I have found it just right myself. Several people have bought a Lyra Light just for that reason.

    Thanks Kevin... that is what I was afraid of. I knew it didn't have a backlight and wasn't expecting it to be bright. I guess it's just a matter of personal preference - for you it's just right and for me it's a bit too dark. Kinda like Goldilocks and the Three Bears I considered getting the case that had the light built into it but, well, I dunno. I'll maybe get an external light.

    Thanks for the speedy reply. Have a great Christmas Day

    I just went and compared my nook to my Kindle... The nook's background is every so slightly whiter than the Kindle's, but not enough to make much of a difference....
