Amazon Kindle ( 2014)
For those who can live without an integrated light, the Kindle (2014) offers the full Kindle e-ink e-reading experience with little compromise for a budget price.
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.
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)
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.
Sony Reader Wi-Fi PRS-T1BC ( black)
While there's no compelling reason to buy it over the Kindle Touch, the Sony Reader Wi-Fi is a very solid e-reader.
Kobo eReader Touch Edition ( lavender)
Though the Kobo eReader Touch Edition doesn't quite measure up to the Nook Touch or the Kindle, it's a respectable and affordable touch-screen e-reader with a lot of pluses.
Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch Reader ( Wi-Fi)
The new touch-screen Nook is a major advancement over its predecessor and offers some real advantages over the 2010 Kindle.
Amazon Kindle ( global wireless, 2009 version)
While the new internationalized Kindle looks exactly like the earlier U.S.-only model, this e-reader, which uses AT&T's data network for wireless access, represents an incremental improvement to the Kindle line--just as serious competition is ramping up in the e-book market.
Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-300 ( silver)
While Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-300 has a basic feature set, its $200 price tag, compact size, and Epub file compatibility make it an appealing e-book reader.
