You can store thousands of books, magazines, newspapers, and audiobooks on one e-reader. E-readers are magical devices that are lightweight, packable, and offer a superior reading experience thanks to E ink technology. Whether you're looking for a straight-up e-reader or a tablet like the iPad that will let you read and surf the web, we have the goods. These are the best e-readers of the year.

Making some reading suggestions

With a bevy of available choices, which e-reader is right for you? If you prefer distraction-free reading with a great screen that mimics the look of paper books, you'll love the Kindle Paperwhite. It's a light and thin dedicated e-reader with a glare-free display and waterproofing, and it's easy on the eyes and the wallet. There is even a more basic Kindle available if you don't need to listen to audiobooks and want to save even more money.

If you prefer a full-fledged tablet, you can't go wrong with Apple's iPad Mini 5. It has a stunning 7.9-inch Retina Display, gives you access to the entire Apple App Store, including Apple Books, and makes for a good all-around e-reading device.

And for kids, we recommend the Kindle Kids Edition. It's purpose-built for reading with a glare-free display and a battery that lasts for weeks.
