It's time for an e-reader.

E-Readers are convienent, affordable, light, and easy on the eyes.

Which one is for you?

Cheaper books, fantastic selection, lightweight.

E-Readers have come a long way: at around half the weight of a paperback with months of battery life and electronic-ink screens that read like a book, you have everything but that new book smell.

Forget everything else, this is the E-Reader you want. The Kindle Paperwhite is a pivotal step forward for the technology of ereaders. It makes previous generations feel like a pulpy paperback held up next to an ornately illustrated tome. In short: this is the best ereader you can buy. - Gizmodo

Kindle Paperwhite

Best-in-class

18/20 Expert Review sites surveyed picked the Kindle Paperwhite as their Editor's Choice e-reader. It shines where it really matters: the screen. With smoother back-lighting than its rival Glowlight and a more robust ecosystem you can't beat the Paperwhite for value.

Nook Glowlight

Runner-up

Not an Amazon fan? Good news then, because the Glowlight is still a great e-reader for your money. The lighting isn't quite as nice and there are some serious concerns about how long the brick-and-mortar Barnes and Noble can remain in business, but they still make an excellent e-reader.

Amazon Kindle

Best Budget Option

Built-in lighting is fantastic for dim-lit reading situations like airplanes or in bed, but if you are only planning on reading where it's light then the original Amazon Kindle is just $69.

Kindle Paperwhite 3G

Best (Only) 3G
