Buying an ebook reader under 8000/- PLEASE HELP! URGENT!

Right off the assembly line
Hi guys/girls,
I am looking for an ebook reader under the budget of 7000 rupees.

I found a link for a Nook Glowlight online on ebay:
Nook Glowlight BNRV500 Barnes Noble Ereader 6" Kindle Paperwhite Alternative | eBay

Since I wanted an ebook reader with a light and a long battery life, is this a better option or should I opt for the basic Kindle with an external light or something?
The Kindle Paperwhite is over my budget.

I could also consider the Kobo if I could get it at a reasonable price.
Open to all kinds of suggestions. Please Comment! :)
Thankyou.

get kindle and an external light such as this-
?LED Light?Xiaomi India Lifestyle Items details
and to power it,get a powerbank(unless kindle supports otg,to power the light)
I suggest this powerbank(any powerbank should do,just suggesting this because its cheap and good quality)
Mi Power Bank - Mi India

- - - Updated - - -

or something like this-
http://www.amazon.in/Adjustable-Flexible-Kindle-reading-Batteries/dp/B00U4OQ8FS/ref=sr_1_sc_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1434984126&sr=8-1-spell&keywords=kidle+light

imho the mi one sounds better but clipping it on might be an issue
you can run a long usb extender from a powerbank and use a regular clip as well though

Hi,
Thanks for the suggestion. Could you also look at the ebay link I sent and check if it is dependable. Because it is the same as paperwhite and much cheaper.

check a few comparative reviews. if you're concerned about the brand, its a competitor of kindle and a brand of repute. i have a tab from them.

another good option is the kobo glo available on ebay. sadly, the black model has been OOS since sometime. but the reader in itself is good. there's a whole thread dedicated to it on another tech forum. if you may be willing to buy a used one for cheap, you can try there. here's the ebay link to the product:

Kobo GLO N613 KBO S 6" Ereader White Silver | eBay

edit: just read your OP in its entirety now. so you are aware of kobo.

Previous gen kindle paperwhite is available for 9K, just a little above your budget.
