Barnes & Noble Nook GlowLight Plus
REVIEW

Barnes & Noble Nook GlowLight Plus

The new Nook GlowLight Plus probably isn't going to make any converts out of Amazon's Kindle customers, but at least Barnes & Noble now has an e-reader with competitive specs and performance to the Paperwhite.

Amazon Kindle Voyage
REVIEW

Amazon Kindle Voyage ( Free 3G)

The Kindle Voyage is Amazon's best e-reader to date, and probably the best e-reader ever -- but it doesn't come cheap.

EDITORS' TAKE

Kobo Aura H2O

Kobo's new e-book reader is designed for reading in the bath, by the pool or waiting grimly in the rain for your bus.

Barnes & Noble Nook GlowLight
REVIEW

Barnes & Noble Nook GlowLight

While it doesn't necessarily beat the Kindle Paperwhite, the $119 Nook GlowLight is an excellent e-reader that's strongly worth considering if you don't want to buy into the Amazon ecosystem.

Kobo Aura
REVIEW

Kobo Aura

With its more portable design, the Kobo Aura is a worthwhile -- albeit pricier -- Kindle Paperwhite alternative for EPUB fans who don't want to be tied to Amazon's proprietary ecosystem.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite
REVIEW

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite ( 2013)

While the "all-new" Paperwhite may seem like an unspectacular upgrade on the surface, it's a clear improvement over the original Paperwhite and arguably the best e-reader currently available.

Kobo Mini
REVIEW

Kobo Mini

The affordable Kobo Mini is a likable touch-screen e-ink e-reader that's too small for some and not quite small enough for others.

REVIEW

Amazon Kindle ( 2012, special offers)

The $69 Amazon Kindle is an excellent no-frills e-book reader for anyone who’s willing to forgo a built-in light or a touch screen.

Sony Reader PRS-T2
REVIEW

Sony Reader PRS-T2 ( red)

The Sony PRS-T2 is a perfectly good touch-screen e-reader whose only sin is that it doesn't have any competitive advantages over Amazon's and Barnes & Noble's e-readers.
