Want to read the latest bestseller? Simply download the book in electronic format from your reader’s dedicated content service. Most Book readers have a dedicated content service that allows users to download an eBook from any place where the Internet is available.

Important factors you must consider before purchasing

1. Design and display

Do you want touchscreen or button navigation? Do you want a reader that uses E-link technology or LCD? In addition to these factors, other things you may consider include the weight of the reader and the size of its screen.

2. Battery life and Memory

Battery life is another important thing you must consider. Most book readers have an internal memory of 2GB or more. If you have a huge collection of eBooks and want all of them to be always accessible, it is recommended that you select a reader that allows for the use of removable memory cards.

3. Dedicated content service and file formats

Some readers use a dedicated content service, which usually has hundreds and thousands of eBooks. It is recommended that you purchase a reader that offers this feature, as then you can download all your eBooks from one place. Another thing you must check for is the number of file formats that the device supports. Obviously, the more file formats a book reader supports, the better it is.
