A Useful Guide For Digital Ebook Readers & Their Main Uses

By Matthew Butler

Ebook readers like the Amazon Kindle and Barnes and Noble Nook, are big business. This is because of a number of reasons which we will look at here.

Advantages of an electronic ebook over a traditional paper book are numerous. Firstly you can download thousands of books onto the single device from a choice of millions.

Ebook readers are also useful as they are small and compact. They weigh less than a paperback and are thinner than a pencil. The screen uses special technology to replicate the look of a real page by using ‘e ink’ displays. The contrast ensures the text is more clear as well.

You can store over 3000 ebooks on one ebook reader, choose from nearly 2 million free books which pre-date 1923 (expired copyright content) and view pdf files and other content too.

There are many different ebook readers now availble at different prices. The Amazon Kindle is the favorite among many and does the job well. It has text to speech technology which actually reads the book to you! Also there is the new Nook from Barnes and Noble with a color touch screen navigation menu or the Apple iPad which is more like a mini laptop. Others include to Kobo and Sony ereader.

Before buying an ebook reader you should consider what functions you want and the features that you will use. For example the Apple iPad is an ebook reader but is also capable of much more like playing games, viewing photos and watching films too. The Kindle on the other hand is great but it is solely for reading digital books. If that is ok with you then it cost a fraction of the iPad.

Prices can vary depending on where you buy, so when you have decided on the model you want search different stores and websites for the best price. You might save a decent amount, especially if you find an online voucher code! If you don’t mind a second hand ebook reader then finding a used device in the classifieds or ebay can save you further.

Ebook Reader To Buy Copyright on millions of ebooks ran out in 1923 so that means they are free to download. Click on the link to learn more about Kindle, Nook, iPad, Kobo and Sony eReader. There are many ebook readers on the market, do you know which is best for you?
