Does anyone have any advice, suggestions, tips, etc? I don't need anything fancy, just need it to read e-books, so all the bells & whistles aren't required.
If that is what you are looking for, the Nook GlowLight is probably your best bet, and cheap at around $120. An advantage of this version over the version I have is that it does have a built in light so you can read any time and any place. That is the only complaint I have with mine! In fact, I have considered purchasing this to replace my original Nook since the battery life isn't what it used to be.
I will say that while you can borrow books from the library on the Nook, the selection at the libraries I am registered with is pretty slim. Also, the "Lend Me" titles so you can share your purchased books with other Nook users is limited. Neither of these selling points provide much benefit.
I have downloaded the Nook app on my iphone and tablet so that I can access my entire library from any of these devices. That makes it nice so that I don't always have to carry my Nook with me in order to read.
I think you will be very happy with a Nook!
I now have a NEXUS tablet and LOVE it! I can read Kindle/Nook basically any e-book. And I'm lucky that my library has a great selection for FREE

There are often generic/off brand Android tablets for sale as well at Walmart, Target, and Best Buy.
Trying to justify a tablet, but really can't right now.
I'd stay away from it at full price, because of the uncertainty about its future, but if it gets heavily discounted, it's probably a bargain.
It looks like the tablets display in color ereaders don't. That's a consideration - color is good.
My battery charge lasts for weeks, because I turn off wifi.
There's an app called BookBub that provides low cost and even free ebooks. Check it out.
