If you’re a book lover who wants to give your library a high-tech upgrade, the Amazon Kindle is an obvious choice. With three versions of the ebook reader, not to mention its Fire tablets, Amazon’s lineup has something for everyone, but which one is best for you?
Maybe you’re not yet sure you want a Kindle at all. Ebook sales have been steadily dropping as more and more readers return to physical books. There’s an inherent pleasure in holding a print book in your hand, and even some research that suggests they help you better absorb the content than an ebook.
But if you travel frequently or commute on public transportation, you can pack hundreds of titles and even an entire bookstore in a gadget that’s smaller than a paperback and weighs less than a hardcover. Backlit ereaders also eliminate the frustrations of low-light situations that can render print books unreadable without a bulky book light.
Whether you’re new to Kindles and ereaders in general or have long been a tech-savvy reader and are looking to upgrade, we have the details on what each Kindle brings to the table. Check them out below.
