Top 5 E-Readers to Gift Give This Holiday

With the price of e-Readers went down while quality and choice increased, gifting an e-Reader becomes more and more popular this holiday season. To help you navigate through all of the choices that are available for sale this holiday season, I have put together a list of top 5 best eReaders in this post. Each one lists price and some details that summarize the e-Readers’ features. Check out!

  • Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (from $119)
As Amazon's flagship e-Reader, Kindle Paperwhite comes with a 6-inch touch screen that features 62% more pixels for sharper, clearer text and a 25% better contrast than on earlier Kindles. It also has a built-in back light tool for readers who like to read in the dark, and an anti-glare screen so that you can read it in the sunlight. It is tied to Amazon’s ecosystem, which means low prices on content, but you have to convert ePUB files.

The Kindle Paperwhite comes in WiFi only and WiFi + 3G, which allows users to download books anywhere with a cell phone connection. The Kindle Paperwhite offers an 8 week battery life, even with the light on and holds up to 1,100 books. Amazing feature is that the Kindle Paperwhite includes the ability to see how long it will take to finish a chapter based on how fast the user reads and allows users to borrow books from the Kindle Owner's lending library. For eReaders, Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is a solid choice.


  • Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch Glowlight (from $119) 
Nook Simple Touch Glowlight is also a top pick and goes head-to-head with Amazon's Kindle Paperwhite, both in terms of price and features. The luckiest thing for Nook owners is that this 6-inch e-Reader starts at $ $119 like the Paperwhite, but without any force ads there. 

The amazing eIink touch display beats the glare while reading outdoors and in bright light. The display also glows offering a lit reading experience at night.
 Users can adjust the level of lighting as well as font sizes. The battery lasts a month on a single charge with the light on. There are over 2.5 million books, magazines and newspapers to be chosen. 

  • Kobo Glo (from $129.99) 
Kobo Glo is Kobo's answer to Nook Glowlight and Amazon Paperlight. It is a 6-inch touch e-Reader that comes with an illuminated eInk screen, which allows users to read at night and in bright light. It retails for $129.99 , supports ePUB files and 2GB of memory – with the option to add a 32GB microSD card if you want to cart the entire Library of Alexandria around with you. There's also a handy Type Genius feature that lets you fine-tune your fonts.

The Glo bookstore has a repository of three million books, newspapers and magazines, one million of which are free. It may not be the biggest in-built book store, but considering the Glo supports all the major file types, it is a simple case of buying the ebooks elsewhere and transferring them onto your Kobo Glo. 


  • Amazon Kindle (from $69) 
Page loads are slightly faster, the screen has better contrast and Amazon has introduced "hand-tuned" fonts to make everything look more appealing.

The Kindle from Amazon starts at $69. Personally it is a nice holiday gift with a more affordable price. Thanks to its lightweight, it is easy to slip to a pocket or a bag for long reading sessions. It uses eInk technology to delivery books that look almost like real paper, and it is great for reading outdoors. Kindle battery life is pegged at 1 month with WiFi turned off, so there's no need to charge it every night.

The Kindle holds over 1,000 books and can download more books over WiFi in under a minute. The Kindle offers access to a huge selection of books on the Amazon Kindle store and 180,000 books to borrow free with an Amazon Prime membership. 


  • Kobo Mini (from $79.99) 
The Kobo Mini is another small and portable e-Reader that could make a great gift this holiday season. It is a pretty cool 5-inch pocket sized touchscreen e-Reader that fits in the palm of your hand. If you want something light weight to carry but are unwilling to read on a phone, just go for Kobo Mini. It cost $79.99.

It features 2GB of storage and one month's battery life once turning off Wi-Fi. Users can also replace its back cover with a choice of colorful options. Kobo offers access to nearly 1 million free eBooks and a library of 3 million books total, which is in line with Amazon's offering. The Kobo Mini also supports ePub and Adobe DRM for eBooks.


In all fairness, above e-Readers provide users a paper-like reading experience as planning to read indoors or at night without a light on. E-Readers make an affordable and excellent gift for all ages, you can pick up the best ereader already on your mind and send it to loved ones this holiday season.
