When shopping around for good eReaders and looking for eReader reviews, you’ll invariably come to this question- should I get an eReader or just go with a tablet instead?
An e-reader is generally cheaper as compared to a tablet. Plus, they do shine where it matters most, which is the reading experience. They are lighter and have better screen technology for emulating a real book. Top-end ereader products have e-ink screens that make it like you’re turning the page of your favorite novel. Moreover, they can be read even under the sun, which gives them the edge over a tablet’s back-lit, glossy screen.
While limited, an e-reader won’t distract you from doing other things. A single device can hold thousands of digital paperback either via the built-in storage or an sd card. Last but not the least, e-readers can last days, even weeks on a single charge because they use so little power.
An e-reader is perfect for:
- Avid Readers
If you have a burning desire to go read paperbacks and novels but don’t have enough space in your home, then it makes total sense to get a capable e-reader device. You can carry much more books on a single, paper-thin device rather than get several hardback covers at a time. When stuck in commute or while waiting for the bus, whip it out and start reading!
- All Learners
The features of an ereader can help you comprehend the book you’re reading at a deeper level. There’s a built-in dictionary and a lookup for verbs, adverbs and synonyms if you want to, among many other reading tools. Kindle has the x-ray feature that lays out the places, people and things, and a short biography of how they were referenced in the book.
- The Environmentally Conscious
Physical books require paper, which then requires trees to be cut down. You can save up on paper by investing in a good ereader that lasts a long, long time. Moreover, you’ll be doing mother earth the favor of saving on fuel, paper and other costs associated with book printing and shipping.
