Which eReader Device to Choose?

Do you want to buy an e-reader device? Here is some advice on choosing the right one for you.

If you are interesting in buying an eBook reader, commonly called e-reader, you will find that there are many such devices available on the market today. Many people use them to read the latest books that they've purchased online, such as suspense novels or romance novels. However, even though e-readers all have the same basic function, they are not all the same and have different features that could be important to some users. Here are some things to consider:

-- Do you need a color screen?

The most recent e-readers like the Kindle Fire and the Nook have a color screen, as opposed to a monochrome one like in previous versions. However, they are also more expensive than those in black and white. Having a color screen could help if you intend to use your e-reader to also browse the web sometimes, or to check out books that have pictures in them or engaging covers like some erotic Books.

-- Look at the company behind the e-reader

The most popular e-readers today, the Amazon Kindle and the Barnes & Noble Nook are all affiliated with their respective book sellers. This makes it convenient to buy books directly on your device. For example, if you have a Kindle, you can buy romance books online straight from the Kindle Store and store them on your e-reader. There is no need to use a computer at all to load content onto your device. If you are looking for the brand that has the widest selection of electronic books available, then the Amazon Kindle would come out ahead, as Amazon has the world's most popular eBook store at the moment.

-- Will you use multimedia features?

Different e-readers have different multimedia features, such as high resolution color screens, support for various video formats, audio, etc. If you are going to do more than just read books on your device, then this is definitely something to consider. Another thing that makes the Kindle stand out is that Amazon has introduced videos to their Kindle Store, so it really has much more than just books available in it. Of course, any device that has a web browser can also watch free online videos, like those on YouTube.

-- The price of the e-reader

Of course, price is something that many buyers will consider as well. You can compare prices of many different devices online and see which one is the least expensive. Take note that prices are subject to change at any time, for example during holiday promotions where some merchandise gets discounted. But remember that functionality is more important than the price when you want to choose a good e-reader.
