There’s nothing like a relaxing evening at home with a good book. Of course, not everyone has room for a stack of books, let alone a library. But that shouldn’t stop you from reading. This will definitely make reading difficult as you will often have to stop and unload books from other people or second hand stores. Thankfully, e-readers offer a better option, storing all of your books on a single device (or in the cloud), allowing you to easily read one book and move on to the next without worry book. If you like to read in bed or lying down, the best e-readers are well-lit and easier to handle than unlit books that require you to turn pages.
Sure, you can use your phone, but it’s not an ideal experience. The problem with dedicated e-readers: They don’t have email, the internet, social media, or other distracting entertainment options to lure you away from reading. They also have excellent battery life. Unlike popular phones and tablets, which wash out in direct sunlight or have intense and painful glare, many e-readers use E Ink technology, which produces some sort of monochrome text display.
I love the E Ink display because the suspended layer and matte screen make your e-reader look like printed paper. If you have sensitive eyesight, this is probably the best e-reader feature because it’s more eye-friendly. The glare-free touchscreen makes reading on the device a pleasure again. The best e-reader models are now waterproof, making them ideal for reading at the beach or pool.you may find your Local library offers free ebook downloads to its members

A lot of people are still clinging to their physical book collections, and I can’t blame them. But with an e-reader, not only can you carry as many books as you want, but you can also search and highlight passages of text and easily change the font size. Many also come with a stylus for taking notes, and if you don’t have a reading light, you’re never out of luck. All the best e-readers on the market have self-illuminating screens.
The list below (which I will update regularly) consists primarily of Amazon Kindle e-reader devices, including the classic Amazon Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite, and Kindle Oasis, as I believe it remains your best e-reader for the best digital “ecology” system”. reader experience. Amazon also offers plenty of low-budget and subscription options. While Barnes & Noble still makes the Nook e-reader, I wouldn’t rush to recommend it. If you want to steer clear of Amazon products, I recommend the Kobo model.
So, are you ready to start reading again? Whether you’re interested in biography, terrified by fantasy, excited by sci-fi, or interested in graphic novels, you’ll find the best e-reader for your digital book needs on this list.
One of the problems with owning a sophisticated, already excellent e-reader like the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is that it’s hard to make it better. The same may be true of Apple’s iPhone and many other devices. But for an e-reader, you’re dealing with a limited feature set and core technology, E Ink, which seems pretty much neutral.
Not surprisingly, the new 11th generation Kindle Paperwhite (2021) ($130) isn’t a huge upgrade for the Kindle Paperwhite 2018. While we can applaud Amazon for enhancing it with new features — namely a larger 6.8-inch display, an upgraded lighting scheme and USB-C charging — there are enough improvements to entice you to buy an existing Paperwhite or not owner. It’s our CNET Editors’ Choice winner in the e-reader category.
Note that the new version is $10 more expensive than the previous Paperwhite. There is also a boost model, Paperwhite Signature Edition, which adds wireless charging and extra storage — 32GB instead of 8GB — and an auto-adjusting light sensor for $190. A children’s version is also available. Like previous Kindle models, the new Paperwhite is expected to be sold sporadically throughout the year. It should cost about $100 during the sale.

Amazon’s top-of-the-line E Ink e-reader got a slight update for 2019 — but this Kindle e-reader device is basically the same as the previous Kindle Oasis, save for one key difference: it has a new color-adjustable integrated light that makes You can customize the tones from cool to warm, depending on whether you’re reading during the day or night. You can also schedule the screen temperature to automatically update with sunrise and sunset—unlike Night Shift mode on Apple devices.
The basic configuration of the Oasis is $250, which is pricey for an e-reader. Most people will be happy with the more affordable Paperwhite for their Kindle e-book reading, but if you want the best anti-glare screen for your reading experience – and don’t mind paying a premium for it – the Oasis is arguably one of them one.This Workshop formAlso selling for $250, it has an 8-inch screen, larger than the Oasis’ 7-inch screen.

The 2019 version of Amazon’s entry-level ebook reader, which Amazon simply calls the Kindle, now has a self-illuminating screen and an upgraded design. At $90, the ebook reader is already a reasonable price, but this Kindle device is often sold for as low as $55. I prefer the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite, which has a high-res display (text and images look sharper), is waterproof, and has a better lighting scheme. But if you don’t want to spend too much on an e-reader, the standard Kindle is a great option, especially when it’s on sale.

Rakuten produces a range of Kobo e-readers that are not only supported by the Kobo store, but also support 14 file and e-book formats (EPUB, EPUB3, PDF, MOBI, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, TIFF, TXT, HTML, RTF, CBZ and CBR).In other words, if you get an ebook or any other digital document from anywhere Apart from Amazon, this device is a replacement for the Kindle, might read them. Kobo devices have their own e-bookstore Has thousands of books, and it has built-in support for borrowing e-books from your local library via the OverDrive service. (You can put library books on your Kindle via OverDrive’s Libby app, but the process isn’t smooth.)
Retailing for $170, the Kobo Libra H20 sits in the middle and, as the name suggests, is completely waterproof. It features a 7-inch HD (1,680×1,264 pixel resolution) E Ink display, built-in lights, and no ads (you’ll have to pay $20 to remove them from your Kindle device).
The Kobo Libra is available in black or white, and you can use the Kobo Libra in portrait or landscape mode.Other Kobo e-reader devices include entry-level Corponia (100 dollars), Cobo Clara HD ($118) and the flagship Kobo e-reader, Workshop form ($250), it has a larger 8-inch high-resolution screen.
Some readers like 9.7 inches Kindle DX, which was discontinued a few years ago. Sony and other companies have made iPad-sized E Ink “tablets,” but they tend to be very expensive. Kobo is now trying to fill the huge e-reader market with its 10.3-inch Elipsa, which it sells as an “Elipsa Pack” that includes a SleepCover and stylus. Using the E Ink Carta 1200 touchscreen with 1,404×1,872 resolution (227 PPI) and dark mode, the screen is crisp and easy to read.
Despite the quad-core 1.8 GHz processor with 32GB of storage, such an E Ink device still feels relatively sluggish compared to the iPad (which uses the Apple Pencil). But performance is good enough, and battery life remains a big plus for E Ink devices—like other e-readers, the Elipsa’s battery life is measured in weeks, not hours.
Elipsa natively supports 15 file formats (EPUB, EPUB3, FlePub, PDF, MOBI, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, TIFF, TXT, HTML, RTF, CBZ, CBR) and weighs 13.5 oz (383 g), plus cover Added extra weight makes it a fairly heavy e-reader. However, you can use the case to prop up the e-reader so you don’t have to hold it while reading, taking notes, or viewing and marking up documents.
Large e-readers aren’t for everyone, but if you want to see a lot of words on a page or increase font size, this Kobo e-reader is an appealing option. They are also great for viewing PDF files.
The LifeBook P10 is a slightly less expensive alternative, but CNET hasn’t reviewed the model.
If you don’t want to pay extra for Kobo’s large e-reader, the Clara HD is a great option for $120. It’s a simple e-reader with Kobo’s ComfortLight Pro integrated lighting and a 300ppi (1,072×1,448 resolution) “HD” display, 8GB of storage, and a 1GHz processor.
