Hi chaps

Thought i'd bite the bullet and learn to read :)

Now i can do that i want an e-reader rather than real books. Does anyone have any suggestions on what is the best e-reader out there?

Money really is no object :)

Sorry, yeah, a tablet. Which is best?

I have an ipad, but want something specific.

Just recently I bought a simple Kindle paperwhite and it's really easy on the eyes.
If it's just for reading text, it's fine. And the battery seems to last forever.
For magazines, comic books, etc, you'd probably want something else.

Got a kindle paperwhite when it came out.

Can't go wrong, really. Nice and easy on the eyes, adjustable brightness settings (no problem reading in broad daylight or in a dark room). Neato adjustable font sizes too.

Only criticism will be how it handles some e-book types. Especially with tables or charts, just doesn't seem to deal well with that kinda data format. But for reading novels / fiction etc it's bloody brilliant! The battery is mad. I've charged it maybe 6 times in three years - that's with daily usage, reading every night for a couple hours etc - more on holidays etc.

The "experimental browser" is, well, experimental. So don't expect to do any browsing. But you can highlight any word in any e-book and directly search Wikipedia (or Dictionaries) for it, which is useful. And some books come loaded with other features too allowing you to find references, character synopses, appearances of plot elements/devices etc.

Thanks guys.

What about Kindle's new Voyage device? Bigger and better and all that?

Compared to mine, it seems a little pricey, for just an increased resolution and a light.

I use my Android phone, An old Galaxy S3 LTE. The App Moon reader+ (which is a terrible name), always set to night mode, which means white text on black background. Backlight set to high during the day, and then turned down low in the evening, so you can read in the dark, without annoying the spouse.
I tend to use the Epub format, it works pretty well, and there are websites, where you can convert your pdf, word or other formats to Epub for free.

Terribly boring signature.

paperwhite all the way, they're awesome. anything with a reflective screen is useless for reading outside.

I have an older Nook thats pretty sweet. E-Ink is nice on the eyes, feels much more print. I'd check out some Nooks at Barns and Noble if that' an option.
