Can’t decide which is the best ereader among so many eReaders now on the market?  Hands down, the Amazon Kindle is still the leader in the eReader market.  But is Kindle the best eReader for YOU?

Or, would another eReader be better, fit your needs better?  Perhaps a tablet?  Maybe we’d better start at the beginning…

What is an eReader?

An eReader is an electronic reading device designed to display digital books…sounds pretty simple, doesn’t it?  And, for the most part, an eReader is a pretty simple concept.

That is, until you start to compare the actual devices, the models, the features, and the prices.  Then, it can get pretty confusing!   Not only are there a lot of excellent devices to choose from, but there are more eReaders in development, and every release promises something new and different…

The real question, of course, is which eReader is the best eReader for your needs, or will best fit the needs of the one for whom you’re purchasing the eReader.

Here are some of the most common features of the best eReaders:

  • HD display provides a backlit display, newer models do well in bright sunlight
  • Paperwhite provides a crisp, white display, works well in any light
  • E-Ink display provides a paper like display, even in bright sunlight
  • Most hold up to 1,500 books, with optional memory cards to add thousands of books to your personal library
  • Compact size.  Most models are typically less than an inch thick and are available in 5″, 6″, or 8″ sizes.  (Some models are available in even larger sizes.)
  • Certain models have built in MP3 players
  • Some models can actually read to you
  • eBooks are easily downloaded from a variety of online venues
  • Rechargeable batteries last for thousands of page turns
  • And, many more features are available, depending on your choice!
