Which Ebook reader?
Nook won’t be around for very long by the looks of things, so you may get a bargain but on the other hand Kindle will have longer support.
I have a kindle 3 which is pretty good. The paperwhite is supposed to be brilliant. I have other gadgets (nexus 7/iPad) which are good for indoor reading but they are heavier and the battery life on the Kindle is superb.Posted 4 years agodannybgoodeSubscriber
For ease of use I’d take the Kindle every day. Massive range of books and just some simple to click buy on Amazon and when you next turn on your Kindle up it pops.
Loads of good stuff has come up on the Kindle Daily Deal recently (so good books for 99p) and Amazon have a surprising amount of the classics for free also.
Much as I hate being tied in to Amazon’s ecosystem (and Calibre can help you back up your investment in books) its hard to look past the Kindle.

Got a kobo – no backlight but like it a lot. Easy to use, downloading books is a doddle and not tied to Amazon. Also, apparently you can take books out of the lending library – you check it out and it deletes after a couple of weeks. Don’t know much about it, i got the reader from someone else who used the library but might be worth looking into if you’re a heavy reader.Posted 4 years ago
EDIT – library use not limited to kobo but limited to .epubandytherocketeerSubscriber
Theres a “Glo” version of the Kobo now too, with backlight.
Price is same as Kindle Paperwhite glowy reader, iirc, but handles more of the free/open formats (as well as the standard DRM formats).
Might get one – I don’t need to buy from Amazon store anyway, but just fancy the portability.Posted 4 years ago
