The Holidays are just around the corner and if you know someone who likes to read (or would like to read more) than an e-Reader might be just right. We’re breaking down all those options so you can find the one to wrap up this year.
Kobo has been the favorite around the office. They are based in Canada and very friendly to indie publishers, booksellers, and libraries. Great for those of you who want to speak out with your shopping. Shopping small really can make a difference!
There are 4 Kobo e-Readers so there is one just right for everyone on your list. Wired Magazine rated the Kobo Touch the best E-Reader. They also have apps so you can read your Kobo books on your phone or computer.
Kindle is certainly the classic e-Reader. The Kindle with Paperwhite is great and really makes the book look like a paperback. The Kindle Touch is easy on your wallet and your eyes. Also Kindle e-Bookstores are expanding internationally. You can read your Kindle books on any of your devices and the bookmarks and notes sync.
Everyone is excited by Apple products, we can tell by the lines around the block whenever something new comes out. The iPad and the iBookstore offer a great reading experience - they patented the lifelike page turn! The iPad is great if you want to keep your library with you at all times. The downside is there are Angry Birds and a million apps to distract from finally finishing Ulysses. Those easily distracted beware but those who love an all-in-one - this is it.
Nook is great for families. You can create up to 6 NOOK Profiles™ so everyone in the family can have their books and bookmarks exactly where they left them. They also have GlowLight so you don’t need a separate book light or to disturb your neighbor when you’re reading in bed.
Whichever you decide on we hope you’ll have a happy book filled 2013! Happy Holidays from Green Light!
