Electronic book readers also known as eReaders, played a vital role in creating the breakthrough product that helped ignite tablet sales. A small, lightweight portable device that held 100s if not thousands of books and magazines appealed initially to travelers and people on the go and then as the utility of such devices became increasingly apparent they caught on with the general public.
However, to a degree, they have been a victim of their own success. Now most tablets have an eReader function or you can download one. However having a dedicated eReader still makes sense, particularly if you want the very long battery life they offer or if your main tablet is always being carried off by others.
Aluratek's Libre, at the Adorama price of $94.99, features a 5 inch display and comes bundled with both a 2GB SD card and 100 pre-loaded e-books. There's no internal memory, but the SD slot on the Libre supports cards up to 32GB in size. It has an "e-paper" display for simulating the look of real book pages and sports a battery capable of 24 hours of continuous use with an auto-shutoff to prevent battery drain when the device is not in use. In standby mode, the battery on the Libre lasts for two weeks.
The Naxa 7” Noodle eBook Reader, available at Adorama for $84.97 touts a larger display than the Libre at seven inches and also has 4GB of built-in memory. It supports a range of ebook standards and also can serve as a video or music playback device.
