There are so many eReaders on the market, it can be confusing trying to figure out which one is the right one for you. One big question I hear from Denver Public Library patrons all the time is, “which one works with the materials I can download from your website?” The answer is most of them should work, some better than others. I have had the opportunity to play with a few of the commonly used eReaders, and here is what I see as the pros and cons to each:
Kindle – The Kindle only recently started working with the library’s downloadable eBooks, but it is probably the easiest device to use. All other eReaders require a separate software to be installed on your computer before you can transfer a title to your device. With the Kindle, it’s all done wirelessly.
Shopping for tech can be overwhelming because there are so many options out there: desktops, laptops, netbooks, tablets, ereaders--all with different bells and whistles. Some of our upcoming classes can help you figure out which device is right for you.
