    Can the surface be used as a book reader and is it any good. Some of the new readers have back lighting so you cab see at night, does the surface 2

    The Surfaces are all active screens, so yes they have backlighting. Easy to read on except in full sunlight imo.

    There are a number of reader apps for use also.

    I don't use mine for that since I think the 10" size is a bit big for reading with, others might disagree though.

    Yes I use my Surface Pro for reading EVERY night.

    Mostly using the Kindle app.

    It is a bit heavy for laying in bed reading, but it's manageable.
