I want an e-reader. But I don’t want to spend money on a gadget that requires me... to keep spending money. Hate that.
Solution: Buy an e-reader that lets me download books from the library.
Earlier e-readers didn't offer this money-saving option. John Falcone of CNET helped us compare new ones that do.
|Name||Barnes & Noble Nook||Kobo Touch||Sony Reader Pocket Edition|
|Battery||Up to 2 months||Up to 1 month||Up to 2 weeks|
|Capacity||Up to 1,000 books||Up to 1,000 books||Up to 1,200 books|
Although Falcone says all three are great options for library downloads, we decided to...
Spend on the Kobo.
The name is weird, but the price is right and it comes in five colors (plus a quilted back—comfy!).
Lend your voice. Do you e-read? What are the pros and cons?
