Ereader or printed book: pros and cons

e-reader synthwave

E-readers are electronic devices, and it may not necessarily seem worthwhile to use an e-reader to read instead of a book.

But, there are many advantages to reading on e-readers:

  • Ebooks (electronic books) are cheaper than paper books
  • You can hold a e-reader with one hand
  • The fonts can be very large which is useful for people with vision problems
  • You can carry thousands of books in one device
  • etc
  • If you want to know all the advantages of using a e-reader to read, you can check this article: top reasons to use a e-reader to read ebooks.

In addition to visually impaired people who need large characters to read (and therefore a reader), we can also use a font like OpenDyslexic which should allow dyslexic people to read more easily on a reader than on a paper book.

It is not necessarily a miracle solution, but it has proven itself in many cases. So you can try it!

However, you don't have to read exclusively on a e-reader.

I think that e-readers can't replace paper reading. But, the two are perfectly complementary. So, I have collections of paper books that I don't have on e-reader. See also : https://myereader.net/ebook-vs-paper-book.html.

But if I want to take something to read on a trip or on the subway, bus or train, it's much easier to carry a 6-inch e-reader, which is thin, light and takes up less space than a paper book.

The other advantage of the e-reader is that you can access classic literature for free. The texts in the public domain are available for download for e-reader without having to pay money.

See this page if you want to download free ebooks: Download free ebook, comics and audio books on the Internet

So, if you like classic authors, you should invest in a e-reader. Even if you pay $150 for your e-reader, you'll pay back your investment very quickly with the free books you read.

If you read a lot, you can also turn to unlimited reading subscriptions. For example, you have the Kindle subscription for Amazon e-readers. For about $10 per month, you will have access to thousands of digital books for download. If you really read a lot, this can again quickly pay off.

What criteria should you use to choose your e-reader?

woman asking a question

Now that you know more, you may want to buy a e-reader But first, you need to ask yourself the right questions to make sure you're making the right choice.

Don't forget that you can check out the complete and detailed e-reader buying guide.

Here are some criteria you can take into account when choosing your e-reader:

Price: what budget do you have? You can have a good e-reader for $129,99 and an exceptional model for more than $200. But you can also start from $99,99.

Screen size: e-reader screen sizes start at 6 inches, but you can go up to 10 inches. A 6-inch e-reader is more portable, but an 8-inch e-reader offers more reading comfort.

Lighting: Many e-readers have lighting for reading at night. The latest e-readers even have a blue light filter.

Text-to-speech: if you want to try text-to-speech, you should know that very few e-readers can read text!

Waterproof: do you read a lot by the pool or in the square? Then you should consider waterproof readers, which are more expensive but more solid.

Color: e-readers with color screens are available, although these models are still expensive and few in number. There is the Pocketbook Inkpad Color 3 for example which is available in the US.
