Do you need an ebook reader when you have a phone or tablet with an ebook app?
There are many choices when it comes to buying a dedicated ereading device.
Among the most popular are the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Oasis. Others include the Barnes & Noble Nook Glowlight, Kobo Aura and Onyx Boox.
The most significant advantage of these dedicated ebook readers is long battery life.
Some models have a memory card, and if you like to read near water, you can even buy a waterproof ebook reader.
But in the end, electronic book readers display text with perhaps a page turn feature.
If you already own a smartphone or tablet, does it make sense to spend a lot of money on yet another gadget?
Particularly if it only works with ebooks purchased from the vendor’s store with strict terms of service.
