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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
