Which is the Best Ebook Reader or Ereader?

With so many electronic reading products on the market, which is the best ebook reader? When deciding which ereader to buy, there are a few things which you need to consider, like screen size, battery life and e-book storage, as well as a list of other things.

If you intend on taking your reading device abroad, you need to consider re-charging requirements unless your reader has a long battery life. If you are traveling where charging won't be permitted for long periods, how about the kindle (latest generation)? The charge from a single charge lasts for three weeks using the wireless and without, a whole month.

Are you going to be reading on the train or subway, on your way to work where it can be crowded? This is one factor which may help you decide on purchasing a six inch screen as opposed to a 9.7 inch screen.

Do you need one with a backlight or would you be content with one that reads just like a paperback book, using a normal reading light.

Are you going to use your e-book reader at night? This is important if you don't want to wake up your partner. In this case, the Kindle range would be the right choice. The new latest generation kindle reader (below) also comes with quieter page turns, again you won't be bothering your sleeping partner!

Would you rather a touch display, like the Sony Touch Edition e-book reader (PRS 600), or are you ‘old school’ like myself and prefer using ‘soft clicking buttons’ to turn pages?

Do you need one which downloads books easily and quickly using a wireless connection, which does not require the use of a computer? How about downloading and reading books in under sixty seconds?

Do you require you own online book library, where even your ebooks can be backed up for FREE? This is a choice you have with the Amazon Kindle ebook store. With the kindle library, you have the largest selection of e-books available, with close to two million books which are FREE. A further half million selection are under ten dollars, including New York Times best sellers. This online book library also lets you download and read first chapters for free. If you like what you read, you can buy the book and be reading it in sixty seconds!

What are going to be reading and in what format? This is a crucial decision which you need to make when choosing the right electronic reader. Choose one that will read as many different file formats, you never know! Or may want to buy one which converts your pdf, to a readable format.

Do you want to read ebooks anywhere at anytime to suit you? What if you are not in a wireless hot-spot? In this case your best choice would be a 3G technology ebook reader like the Kindle DX. The DX will let you download books in over one hundred countries, including Hong Kong, Germany, Japan, Spain, United Kingdom and Norway.

Do you want to share messages on Twitter and Facebook, social networking sites? The latest generation kindles comes with this integration.

The  Reading Wireless Device Latest Edition model is at the top of my list for choice of ebook readers. It makes great use of wireless hotspots, has quieter page turns for late night reading, you can use it in bright sunlight with out glare problems and also holds over three thousand books.
