Five reasons to buy an e-reader

Five reasons to buy an e-reader

(NAPS)-If you're like most people, you've been hearing about the new electronic readers and may be wondering if you should buy one. Here are five reasons you may care to consider:
* Lots of choices. There are several types of e-readers available, so you can probably find one that fits your needs and lifestyle. The e-readers that are simplest and easiest to use are the ones designed just for reading, so you're not distracted by other technologies.
* You can now read in color. Reading a recipe in a cookbook with photos in black and white, or reading a children's book to your kids with the illustrations in black and white, just isn't the same as enjoying them in full color. Luckily, some of the newer e-readers let you read in full color, so you can enjoy the complete reading experience.
* Portable library. Imagine being able to take all your books with you when you go out or on vacation. You can do this with an e-reader, which stores all your books so you have a portable library. In addition, they're small and lightweight so you can easily carry them in your purse or luggage.
* Great gifts. An e-reader makes an excellent gift for friends and just about everyone in the family, young or old, who loves to read. And it's a suitable gift for all occasions, including Christmas, Hanukkah, birthdays, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day and for graduation. Consider giving an e-reader together with an e-book from the recipient's favorite author.
* They're affordable. The first e-readers were fairly expensive but nowadays you can find one for $160 and under. And the savings don't stop there. The e-books themselves, which you buy through an online bookstore, typically cost under $10, much less than you'd probably pay for a new hardcover book. If you prefer to get your reading materials from the library, many now lend out e-books.
One new wireless color e-reader that's considered simple, affordable and stylish is the Literati by The Sharper Image. With it, you can read and enjoy your e-books on a vibrant 7-inch color screen. When you're ready for new reading material, you connect wirelessly to the built-in bookstore, where you can browse through millions of books and magazines before making your purchase. As a bonus, the e-reader includes 150 free books (all classics) and a stylish carrying case. You can find the e-reader at major retail stores and online at www.LiteratiReader.com.
