Why You Should Throw Your Books Away and Switch to e-Book Reader Right Now


Because of computers and of the internet, people can now read news, school lessons, and the novels they like over the internet or on their desktops. But what revolutionized that simple activity of reading is the introduction of e-book readers. E-book readers are portable computers specially designed for downloading, storing, and reading electronic books or e-books. If you don’t have an e-Book reader yet, here are some of the best reasons why you should buy one and dish away your paper books:

  • It’s portable and convenient to use. E-book readers are small and light making them easier to carry than actual books that are big and bulky. The average screen size of these readers is from 7 to 10 inches, small enough to carry in your bag or backpack. It’s very convenient to use since you can access the books you want to read anywhere and anytime.
  • You can carry hundreds of books in one device. Related to the benefit of convenience, an e-book reader also allows you to carry multiple books, novels, and stories in a single device. The amount of titles you can save on the device will depend on its storage capacity. But nevertheless, the most basic reader is already capable of storing by the hundreds. Imagine if you would carry all those books physically, it would certainly be difficult or even impossible.
  • Enhanced reading. When you choose to read a physical book, you have no other option but to use it as is. If there are defects, stains, torn or missing pages, you have to bear with such flaws. You will never experience traditional book problems with an e-book reader. E-books will always be as good as new and will never fade. If you have problems reading smaller fonts, you can always zoom-in simply by tapping the appropriate option. You can adjust the brightness and contrast. And most importantly, you can read even at the darkest hour of the night.
  • E-book readers are eco-friendly. These gadgets are also eco-friendly because businesses no longer need to cut down trees just to produce an e-book or e-book reader. The amount of energy consumed is very minimal and the newest LED models are even much more efficient.
  • Added functionality. Much of the e-book readers today are no longer limited to reading. Popular brands like Amazon Kindle have transformed to become a much more functional device. Today, e-books are now equipped with almost all other tablet computer capabilities like internet connectivity, use of Apps or applications, storage and playing of media files, etc.

The Latest Breed of E-Book Reader: Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

Kindle Paperwhite

Without a doubt, the most popular and best seller brand when it comes to eBook readers is Amazon Kindle. With the release of its latest model Kindle Paperwhite, all other e-book and tablet names are clearly outranked. Aside from the standard Kindle features, the Paperwhite boasts the following: an even smaller, lighter, and better design, extremely efficient battery which can last for weeks not just hours, ability to read even under the sun, and prevention of eyestrain because of the improved screen or display.

The Watch we’ve all waited for

Apple Watch

There are way too many critics about the new Apple Watch, which is going to be released in 2015. I understand that people were expecting some kind of a miracle from Apple, like floating heads of their friends, which are talking to them, or a lethal laser with which they can easily kill their enemies. But the one thing that these people have to realize is that Apple is not a spy gadget factory! If you can accept that cars are not floating in the air yet, then why can’t you stop hating Apple for not doing exactly what you dreamed about, when you were five.

Although you won’t necessarily transform into James Bond if you wear this watch, it is still awesome. Could be better, I admit, everything could be better, but let’s be honest, it is a huge innovation! The Apple Watch is basically a gadget, which has all the things, that your phone has, but you can simply wear it on your wrist. It is small, comfortable, can be used easily (such as the IPhone) and looks awesome, stylish stainless steel and a large variety of bands for every kind of people.  There are three kinds of leather bands, link bracelets and many others, which I don’t particularly like, but can be cool for kids, I guess.

It is a real innovation that you can have a touch screen watch, on which you can text, call, browse and which keeps track of your appointments. How cool is it? We, men hate carrying stuff around, as most of us don’t have a handbag, and it is annoying to have too many things in your pockets, so this is the best thing, which can happen to us. We don’t need anything else, we can talk on the watch, text on it, play with it, pay with it! A man always needs a watch, and now we have The Watch, it looks awesome and has everything what we need. The only thing, which I find hard to imagine, is how to use such a small touch screen without a touch screen pen, of which Apple doesn’t really talk about, and I have quite large fingers. I can solve the problem with Siri, which is also included in the watch, but still, some of us don’t like to talk to their watches in public!

Anyway, I’m looking forward to it!
