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.

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.

REVIEW

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.

REVIEW

Iriver Story HD

The Iriver Story HD is a decent e-reader for fans of Google Books, but it's tough to recommend over its identically priced competitors, which offer touch screens and 3G.

REVIEW

Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-650PC ( red)
