5 Reasons Why eReaders Make a Perfect Gift

Posted on 17 December 2009

With new advancements in technology, book reading has taken a new turn too. The old days of carrying several books around while traveling are over. Now it is possible to travel light, get the latest books, and enjoy reading wherever and whenever you want with the new e-readers. Here are five reasons why e-readers are much better than traditional books, or your laptop.

1. Perfectly Designed For Purpose

Most of the e-readers are so perfectly designed for their purpose, that they serve you in every best possible way. Sony, and most other others are very thin, making them easy to hold and much simpler to use. Some of the e-readers also have a touch screen, that use a sweeping finger across the screen as a sign for turning the page. They are also much easier to carry around, you can carry them comfortably in your pocketbook, backpack or hand, which is not the case with a laptop or tablet.

2. Travel Light with All of Your Favorite Reading Material

Most of the E-books carry up to 1,500 books in their flash memory. Readers usually travel with three or four tomes of different sizes. You can also subscribe to different magazines and get them on the Kindle. This way, you can carry as many magazines as you want in your backpack, and not feel the weight at all.

3. Access to the Free Digital e-book Store, With No restriction of Location, and Cheaper Books

Amazon’s 3G Whispernet cellular service is totally free, and can be accessed from anywhere in the world. This also allows you to get the subscribed magazines simply by turning on the free connection and downloading. Many of the books are much cheaper as compared to their physical counterparts and magazine subscriptions can be cheaper, too.

4. E-books Don’t Cause Strain To Eyes

E-ink is a technology that offers much different features as compared to a LCD display. It is fixed, with no refresh, reflective just like a paper, and doesn’t cause any eyestrain.

5. E-books Are for Sharing

Most book lovers don’t like sharing their books, or getting rid of them. They just read them and keep them in a safe place on their shelves. With e-books, you can read easily, store them without taking up much space, or get rid of them if you want, it will be a much less emotional issue. On the other hand, you can share e-books with others who also have a Kindle.
