Are Electronic E-book Readers Worth The Money?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Is it worth paying out money for an electronic e-book reader device? A lot will depend on how you look at the question. It will depend on how much you read for a start. But then again, we are not necessarily talking about just books. What do I mean by this?

Well the point is that there is a lot more to one of these devices than you might at first think. Ok, we all know that they read books. Fair enough, but what else can it do? Herein lies the secret to this growing market. The modern electronic e-book reader can do a whole lot more than you realise. So what can they do?

Well let’s speak generally. Did you know that an electronic ebook reader like those available on the market today can actually read a book to you? You can read newspapers and magazines or even store documents such as school work or those pertaining to your business and as they are generally as light as a feather, then they take the word convenience into a whole different aspect.

Some of these devices will play music to you, even while you read. Some have back lit screens where others use a special ‘electronic ink’ and pages that look almost like a paper book so you can read in very bright sunlight. Some of these gadgets have an extraordinary battery-life which in the case of the Amazon Kindle 3 is an astonishing 30 days!

To download a book nowadays is simple, very cost effective and extremely fast. With some electronic e-book readers, it will take less time to download and for you to be reading something interesting than it will for you to get your shoes on and grab your car keys!

The modern electronic reader has the potential to change lives save money and save fuel and we haven’t even begun to consider the benefits when it comes to storage within the home. Some of these pieces of electronic wizardry can store thousands of book and documents. Just imagine, it’s like having a whole library in your pocket! And this is without all those associated storage problems. Not only this, you can review many of the books you are interested in before you buy them. This is if you have to buy them in the first place.

There are currently about 1.8 million e-books that are out of copyright which means that if you are not too concerned about totally up to date material, then you don’t have to buy another book, ever! Now that’s what I call good value.

So, in conclusion, there might just be a bit more to consider when making a decision as to whether or not to buy you next book in paper or on an electronic ebook reader. But before you do make the plunge, why not do some more research on the subject and make a more informed decision.

There are lots to choose from and we have several featured on our website.
