Curl up with a good book with the help of these e-readers…

1) KINDLE E-READER,
6in GLARE-FREE TOUCHSCREEN DISPLAY, WI-FI (BLACK)

GADGETS E Readers 095368

If you’re new to the world of e-readers – a world dominated largely by Amazon – this basic Kindle could be a good starting point. Not least because the screen is glare-free, making lengthy sessions with your tome of choice easier on the eyes. At just 161g, the Kindle is portable and kinder on the hands if you’re planning on tackling some Tolstoy this year. As well as that, the battery lasts for a couple of weeks – providing you give it a full four-hour charge – so it’s an ideal travel companion. £59.99, Amazon

2) KOBO AURA E-READER, 6in ILLUMINATED TOUCH SCREEN

 

GADGETS E Readers 095323
Take this Kobo on a sunny holiday and reading in the daylight won’t be a problem. The screen is glare-free, making beach or poolside reading a possibility, with the touchscreen ensuring turning the page is a doddle. On the flipside, reading in a dark room is also a breeze thanks to a solid front light and easy to adjust brightness settings.
£99.95, John Lewis

3) KINDLE OASIS E-READER WITH BLACK LEATHER CHARGING COVER, 6in HIGH-RESOLUTION DISPLAY (300 PPI) WITH BUILT-IN LIGHT

GADGETS E Readers 095388

At £269.99, the Kindle Oasis is considerably
dearer than other e-readers on the market, but if you’re looking for an investment and are already accustomed to using a Kindle, this is a lovely piece of kit. Ease is the order of the day here, and with one half of the device slightly thicker than the other, the heft of the Kindle sits in your palm, making reading easier, especially if you’re doing so one-handed. A nice little touch is the leather case which boosts battery life every time you close it, and looks sleek too. £269.99, Amazon

4) KINDLE PAPERWHITE E-READER, 6in HIGH-RESOLUTION DISPLAY (300 PPI) WITH BUILT-IN LIGHT, WI-FI (BLACK)

GADGETS E Readers 095309

Lighter than a paperback, this Kindle Paperwhite stores thousands of books and displays them in the new Bookerly font, which is easier to read, especially with the wide range of larger font sizes. There’s also an inbuilt light to aid bedtime reading and a word-builder function to add interesting vocabulary. One charge should give you a month to six weeks’ worth of reading, presuming you read for half an hour every day. £109.99, Amazon

5)KOBO AURA H2O WATERPROOF E-READER

GADGETS E Readers 095332

If reading in the bathtub sums up perfect relaxation, this e-reader has your name on it. Obviously, dunking the Kobo Aura H2O into water for any length of time isn’t going do it any favours, but it is waterproof, sand-proof and dust-proof, making beachside – or desert-side – reading less precarious. You can store up to 3,000 books on the device and each charge should give you 1,400 hours of reading pleasure. £129.99, Argos

6) VTECH DIGIGO PINK

GADGETS E Readers 095366
This VTech device puts children – and multi-functional use – at the forefront. Designed for 3-7-year-olds, the DigiGo is a pocket-friendly – the screen is just 4.3inches – tablet capable of taking photos, hosting games and best of all, storing e-books. You can download books, videos and music from VTech’s own Learning Lodge. As well as this, children can use it to message smartphones.  £79.99, www.very.co.uk
