E Reader recommendations
Mrscarlos has a Nook Glowlight and as mentioned above Barnes and Noble are dearer for books, ,bought our 8 year old son a Kobo mini to replace the small mountain of books that was threatening to take over his bedroom and its a good piece of kit simple to use with loads of free and cheap books on the WH Smiths and Kobo sites.Posted 4 years agoTubs RacingMember
Mrs TR has got on well with a Kindle for the last 18 months and she’s just upgraded to a Kindle Paperwhite so she can read at night when we go camping (sounds like an excuse to me so that she could have a shiny new toy – but at least I get the cast off old one). Only 2 days in but she thinks its brilliant in the light or dark.Posted 4 years agostevegoMember
We have 2 kindle paperwhite in the house, just having converted to ebooks. I bought the first to have a play with 6 months ago, still haven’t finished a book on it as MrsSG refuses to put it down. Had to buy a second for my daughter for her birthday as she kept taking the first one to read her books. They are great pieces of kit, easy to read, light. I was initially concerned that the screen size seemed a little small compared to a paperback, but that isn’t an issue. Might need to buy a third so I can read it.Posted 4 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
Had the Kindle Paperwhite since Christmas.
Definitely my favourite bit of recent tech, all the better for being simple.
Much less eye strain than a laptop or tablet, battery lasts for ages and I rarely buy books anymore – there’s so much free stuff out there it’s crazy.
As above, highly recommended.

Me too. I like the fact that you can change the font size – great when I forget my reading specs.Posted 4 years agoturboferretSubscriber
I bought my first Kindle towards the end of last year, a Kindle Paperwhite, and really like it. Shove it in the back pocket to read while in the canteen at lunch, very handy and a very crisp screen to read from.
No experience with any other e-readers, but no complaints about the Paperwhite. I do wish I had spent a few more $ on the 3G version though.
