Amazon Kindle Voyage
REVIEW

Amazon Kindle Voyage

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

REVIEW

Amazon Kindle ( 2012)

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.

Kobo Vox
REVIEW

Kobo Vox ( blue)

While it's relatively affordable, the Kobo Vox is a truly unexceptional Android tablet, with nothing to recommend it over the identically priced Kindle Fire.

Amazon Kindle 2011
REVIEW

Amazon Kindle 2011 ( with Special Offers, Wi-Fi)

If you don't want to spend the extra $20 to upgrade to the forthcoming touch-screen version, the entry-level 2011 Kindle is a great choice for an ultraportable and superaffordable no-frills e-ink reader.

Kobo Wireless eReader
REVIEW

Kobo Wireless eReader ( WiFi, onyx)

Though the Kobo Wireless eReader is a serviceable e-book reader with built-in Wi-Fi, it's worth spending the extra money to get the Kindle or the Nook instead.
