What Is The Best Ereader?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There have been a lot of different e-readers coming out as of late. Some common questions someone asks themselves is should I get one? Which one should I get? Should I get a nook? Should I get a kindle? Should I get an I-pad? Should I get a Kobo? Which one should I choose!? There are too many options for me. You have more choices than ever. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

The main Ereaders are the Kindle and the Nook. The first one I had seen or heard about is when I was at my friends house and saw that he had bought a Kindle for his mom, which she really seemed to like. Then the son started using it pretty often and they ended up buying one for him! So I’d say if you went with a Kindle that wouldn’t be too bad.

So mother’s day was coming around and I decided I would get my mom a kindle and went out too look for one. I didn’t do any research online or anything… like you are doing now and I should have done. I simply walked into a Barnes & Nobles store and asked them if they sold kindles and they said no, they just have the nook. I had no idea what that was so I asked about it and they talked to me for a few minutes and said it had many more books available for it then the kindle and a bunch of other features it had. Then they tried to convince me to buy the color nook. As much as I love my mom I didn’t want to spend that much money having no idea whether she would like it. So I bought the cheap one, which just wasn’t in color and doesn’t have internet access anywhere, you have to actually be in range of your router.

So what is the best Ereader? I don’t think you can go too wrong! The Kindle and Nook both seem liked by people I know and either one will be a great option. I'd imagine the other ones avaialble are pretty similar as well. Then it just depends on how fancy you want it… if you want to use it for just casual reading, or use it as an internet device as well. Also do you care if it is in color or not?

My mom has loved her nook every since I bought it for her and has been using it everyday. Shortly after getting it she realized she needed some accessories for it. There are lots of nook covers and cases available so she looked around and found a cover that she liked. Then she also bought a nook case for convenient travel and she carries it around everywhere we go.
