Reading Books

The Kindle is designed to be an eBook reader, and this shows: we found that it offered the best reading experience of any of the devices that we have tested so far. The eInk screen is easy on the eye and doesn't seem to cause the same sort of eye-strain that brighter LCD screen can, and looks great in all lighting conditions except total darkness. An LCD screen might be better if you read under the covers, but for every other situation, the Kindle eInk screen is superior. The device itself is also small and light enough to hold for long periods, and you can also hold the device and turn pages with one hand, thanks to the page forward and back buttons on both sides of the device.
