With the iPad blowing up the market right now, the eReader isn't as popular as it was a few months before tie iPad was unveiled. Despite the fact that the iPad is selling better than many eReaders, there are still lots of folks out there who would rather just get a good eReader like the Kindle 2 or the Barnes & Noble Nook. If you are one of these sorts the lack of a backlight for the screen means you will need a light of some sort to read in the dark.
