Benefits of Using Digital Book Readers
Digital book readers are quickly taking over the electronics world as some of the most wished for and most gifted products of recent months. If youíre thinking of buying your own reader, here are some of the benefits of doing so.
Top of the list is the feature that digital book readers were designed for: portability. The whole point of an electronic reader is to allow users to take a whole collection of books with them wherever they go. This is perfect for those who commute, travel often, or simply love to read books but hate to carry them around!
Most eBook readers are typically around the size of a small paperback, meaning they take up far less space -whether that means on your bookshelf or in your handbag - than a normal collection of physical books would. They donít weigh any extra, either!
True book lovers will love the connectivity features of many of the latest readers, allowing them to logon to eBook stores and purchase books whenever they want. Kindle is famous for its wireless network, though other eBook readers are also following suit.
3) They Are Easy to Read
Though some people may assume otherwise, digital book readers are actually surprisingly easy and enjoyable to read. Thanks to a technology known as e-Ink, light is reflected from the screen in the same way as itís reflected from paper. You wonít find your eyes getting tired or strained as they would with a computer screen.

4) Benefits to Publishers, Authors and Readers
Due to the way in which eBook readers can make books available to a mass audience, they benefit publishers, authors and readers alike. They make it easy to self-publish your own work, and save publishers huge costs by avoiding printing, binding and all the other work that goes into creating physical books.
5) Ease of Use
When reading an eBook on your digital device, itís far easier to search than with a physical book. If you need to find a particular word or phrase you can do so in seconds, and you may also have the ability to highlight, browse back and forth easily, and save favorite locations of the book. On top of this, you can customize the font, the size of the words and the layout to match your needs and preferences. On some models you can even lookup words in the dictionary on the go!
6) Take Advantage of Free eBooks
There are many fiction works, published prior to 1900, available in the public domain - and you can get eBook versions of these books completely free with your new eBook reader! What better way to start off your collection?
These benefits just scratch the surface of what youíll experience when you start using digital book readers. Just think of how they will encourage you to read more, to save paper, and to enjoy yourself when travelling!
