Don't know which ebook reader to choose according to your needs? Take a look at our guide to buying the best ereader!

The advantages of the ebook reader: it competes with paper books!

First of all, let's try to dispel the false myths concerning the ereaders: the screen of the ereaders resembles in all respects a sheet of paper, and not a tablet screen! In fact, ebook reader technology is called e-ink precisely because it faithfully reproduces the ink. The ereader's screen reflects the natural light of the external environment, and does not produce artificial blue light like smartphones, PCs and tablets, which in the long run tires the eyes and even deprives us of sleep . The ebook reader adapts to any reader: from the child who discovers novels for the first time, to the adult commuter who wants to make good use of the time on public transport, to the elderly who need larger fonts so as not to force too much sight. Just change the text size, and that's it! Another advantage of the ereader is that, unlike the tablet, it uses the Wi-Fi connection only for downloading new ebooks, so it is not distracting and does not drain the battery as fast as the tablet!
