Which e-Reader Do You Prefer?
I picked up my very first e-reader in July of 2010. I felt like I was very late to the e-reader market, because everyone had a Kindle! But I was being very diligent and wanted to research the best reader for ME. The Nook Wifi had just debuted on the market with its touch-screen interface on the bottom, and I thought I was all hot potatoes having learned things like which reader was best for checking out ebooks from libraries, or which reader would last longer, and which reader had the best e-ink display. Seriously, you guys, it was a major problem. I ultimately chose to go with the Nook Wifi because I wanted the most library options, but not too soon after, publishers and Overdrive turned everything on its head and began offering more ebooks in Kindle format. Whole worlds of opportunities began to open up for people with e-readers. I even know people who read ebooks solely on their smart phones! My own personal trek through e-reading began with the Nook Wifi in white, then migrated to the Nook Color (which I hated and sold almost immediately – it should be noted, I always sell a previous device to pay for the new one!). I then picked up the iPad 2, and to supplement reading on the beach, which is impossible with any tablet, I also bought a Nook Simple Touch two years ago. But as all things e-reader, I’ve again morphed through two new iPads and a Kindle Paperwhite. A total list of my ereaders in chronological order:
- Nook Wifi
- Nook Color
- iPad 2
- iPad Mini
- Nook Simple Touch
- Kindle Paperwhite (currently own)
- iPad Mini w/ Retina (currently own)
That’s a lot of e-readers in less than four years… To the polls!
