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 (2013)
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.

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 (black)
REVIEW

Sony Reader PRS-T2 ( black)

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.

Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight

The Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight sets the standard for e-ink e-readers going forward and is well worth the extra money if you do a lot of nighttime reading.

Kobo Vox (green)
REVIEW

Kobo Vox ( green)

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.
