I'm considering buying an e-reader.

Because reading on the computer screen is very tiring to eyes.

I'm considering the Kindle or the Kobo. I think the Kobo has more features.


Buying books here in Brazil is very expensive. 2 books I want to buy are R$ 150,00 each. Considering that I already have them as PDF and epub it would be cheaper to just buy an E-reader.

The Kobo touch is being sold here for R$ 365,00.

I can have unlimited books on it if I synchronize it with my PC.

Do you have experience with E-readers? Are they good? Please share your thoughts.

I have a Kindle 3 since the other last year and I use it on a daily basis. It's a very comfortable reading experience, even in outdoors. It does exactly what is expected to do.

I have it rooted, but I use the shell seldom. Just some book transfer via ssh and nothing more, and just for the sake of it. It's easier to send the book via email and that's all. It's a reading device, not well suited for any other purpose.

I have used the new Kindle also but I don't have one. The device has a light but is frontal, not retroilluminated, so there is no eye strain. Better contrast and resolution, but the reading experience is not that different, except if you used to read often in poor light conditions.

Never used the Kobo so I cannot give any advice or comparison.

If you like reading, an e-reader is a must.

Update: I bought a Kobo!

And I studied more in the last few days than in my whole life.

It's worth it for those who read a lot.
