Reading is a great way to relax as well as learn about new things or existing interests. And with apps like Kindle, Nook, Apple Books or Kobo, you can swallow a new book or an old favorite book from any tablet, phone or similar device. However, a dedicated e-reader can not only prove to be a much less distracting reading experience, but can also offer a much more relaxing and exciting one. Whether you want to read history, explore the latest research, look for a relaxing, simple pleasure from one of the great classics that literature can offer, or you want to immerse yourself in the latest pleasure. thriller, you can access any exciting category of e-books of your reading desires by quickly clicking on the download link.
The special feature of special e-readers is that they do not have e-mail, the Internet, social networks or other entertainment options that distract you from your book. The best feature for e-reading for me is not freedom from distraction. The best feature of e-readers for my money is that they have a long battery life. Unlike popular phones and tablets that can be washed out in direct sunlight or boast strong and painful glare, many available e-book readers use E-Ink technology, which creates something like a monochrome text display. I like electronic ink displays because the hanging layer and glossy screen make your e-reader look like printed paper. This makes it much better for the eyes, helping you avoid the eye strain typical of spending hours on your phone, tablet or in front of a computer screen. Glare-free touch screens again make reading on your device fun. And even better, the best e-reader models are now waterproof, so they’re perfect for reading on the beach or by the pool. And the exclusive use of an e-book reader doesn’t always have to exclude you from the pleasure of free reading. Readers may rejoice because creating a good reading habit should not make you break up. You may find that yoursas it becomes an increasingly popular option around the world, free ebooks are also widely available and easy to find online.
So, are you an avid reader, ready to find the best way to read all these exciting ebooks in your digital library? Then it’s time to update your e-reading experience with a new special e-book reader. Many people are still attached to their physical book collections, and I can’t blame them. A complete bookshelf is a beautiful addition to any home, and there is always something to say about the smell of old books. However, we should not so hastily discount the benefits of a good collection of e-books. Readers of electronic electronic resources provide a lot of advantages over a large and material variety. With the e-reader you can not only take as many books as you want without the traditional restrictions on weight and size, you can also search and highlight snippets of text using the touch screen, changing the font size as easily as 1-2-3. And many now come with an accompanying stylus, making notes easier than ever. Also, you are never lucky if you don’t have a reading lamp. All the best electronic readers on the market have backlit screens.
The list below (which I update periodically) is mostly filled with Amazon Kindle email readers, including the classic Amazon Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite, and Kindle Oasis, because I believe it’s still the best digital “ecosystem” for your best e-mail. reader experience. Amazon also offers many options with low budgets and subscriptions. And while Barnes & Noble is still releasing its famous Nook e-reader, I wouldn’t be in a hurry to recommend it. Honestly, if you want to stay away from Amazon products on this, then I would suggest choosing the Kobo model.
So are you ready to start reading again? Whether you enjoy biographies, fantasy, science fiction or novels, this list includes the best e-program for reading your digital books.

One of the problems with a sophisticated, already excellent e-reader, such as the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite, is that its difficult to make much better. The same can be said for Apple’s iPhones and many other devices. But with the e-reader you are dealing with a limited set of features and basic E Ink technology, which seems to be pretty much stuck in a neutral state.
So it’s no surprise that the new 11th generation Kindle Paperwhite (2021) ($ 130) isn’t a big upgrade over the 2018 Kindle Paperwhite. Although we can pay tribute to Amazon for improving its new features, namely, a larger 6.8-inch display with an upgraded lighting scheme and USB-C charging. offers enough improvements to entice you to purchase it, regardless of whether you own a paperwhite or not. This is our winner of the CNET Editors’ Choice Award in the category of e-readers.
Note that the new version costs $ 10 more than the previous Paperwhite. And the growing model, Paperwhite subscription edition, adds wireless charging and additional storage – 32 GB instead of 8 GB – as well as an automatic light sensor for $ 190. A children’s edition is also available. As with previous Kindle models, expect the new Paperwhite to go on sale periodically throughout the year. At the time of the sale, it should cost about $ 100.

Amazon E Ink’s best e-reader was slightly updated in 2019 – but this Kindle e-card reader is essentially identical previous Kindle Oasis except for one key difference: it has a new built-in color-adjustable luminaire that lets you adjust the color tone from cold to warm, depending on whether you’re reading day or night. You can also schedule automatic screen heating updates at sunrise and sunset – not like Night shift mode on Apple devices.
At $ 250 for the base configuration the Oasis is expensive for e-reading. Most people will be happy with the more affordable Paperwhite e-book reader Kindle, but if you want the best of the best with an anti-glare screen reader – and don’t mind paying a premium for it – Oasis is probably one. The Kobo Formwhich also sells for $ 250, has an 8-inch screen larger than the 7-inch in Oasis.

2019 version Amazon The entry-level e-book reader, which Amazon simply calls the Kindle, now has a self-backlit screen and an upgraded design. For $ 90, this e-book reader already costs a reasonable price, but this Kindle device goes on sale regularly for only $ 60. I prefer the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite, which has a high-resolution display (text and images look a little clearer), is waterproof and has a better lighting scheme. But if you don’t want to spend a lot on an e-reader, a standard Kindle is a good option, especially if it’s discounted.
Rakuten produces a line of Kobo e-readers that not only work from 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 your ebooks – or any other digital documents – from anywhere in addition Amazon, this device is an alternative to the Kindle, which will probably read them. The Kobo device has its own ebook store with thousands of books, and it has built-in support for checking e-books from local libraries through the OverDrive service. (You can get library books on the Kindles through the Libby OverDrive programbut it’s not such a smooth process.)
The Kobo Libra H20, which retails for $ 170, is in the middle of the line and, as the name implies, is completely waterproof. It has a 7-inch HD (1,680×1,264 pixel resolution) E Ink display, built-in backlight and no ads (you have to pay $ 20 to remove them from Kindle devices).
Available in black or white, you can use Kobo Libra in portrait or landscape mode. Other Kobo e-readers include entry-level Koba Niya ($ 100), Koba Clara HD ($ 118) and the flagship Kobo e-reader Kobo Form ($ 250), which has a larger 8-inch high-resolution screen.

A group of readers who loved the 9.7-inch was selected Kindle DXwhich was discontinued several years ago. Sony and others have made “E Ink tablets” the size for the iPad, but they are usually quite expensive. Now Kobo is trying to fill this giant niche for e-readers with its 10.3-inch Elipsa, which is sold as the “Elipsa Pack” and includes a SleepCover and a stylus. The screen is quite clear and easy to read with the touch screen E Ink Carta 1200, which has a resolution of 1,404×1,872 (227 PPI) and dark mode.
Despite the quad-core 1.8GHz processor with 32GB of memory, a similar E Ink device still feels relatively sluggish compared to the iPad (using the Apple Pencil). But performance is pretty decent, and battery life remains a strong point for E Ink devices – like other electronic readers, Elipsa battery life is estimated in weeks, not hours.
Elipsa supports 15 file formats (EPUB, EPUB3, FlePub, PDF, MOBI, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, TIFF, TXT, HTML, RTF, CBZ, CBR) and weighs 13.5 ounces (383 g) and cover adds extra weight, which makes this e-reader quite heavy. However, you can use the case to support the e-reader so you don’t have to keep it while reading, taking notes, or viewing and marking documents.
Great e-readers are not for everyone, but if you want to see a lot of words on a page or increase the font size, this Kobo e-reader is an attractive option. They are also good for viewing PDF files.
The LifeBook P10 is a slightly smaller alternative, but CNET has yet to consider this model.

If you don’t want to pay a premium for big Kobo e-readers, Clara HD is a good $ 120 alternative. This is a simple e-book reader with built-in Kobo ComfortLight Pro backlight and 300 ppi (resolution 1.072×1.448) “HD” display, 8GB memory and 1GHz processor.
