Likes to Read If problems like that make it difficult for you to read your e-book collection, maybe it’s time for you to have a special gadget for reading e-books, namely an e-reader.
What is an E-Reader?
In short, an E-reader is a gadget created specifically for reading E-books. The e-reader at first glance is similar to a regular tablet, with a thinner and lighter body that makes it comfortable to hold in one hand.
However, the main difference is in the screen. Instead of using OLED or LCD like regular tablets, e-readers use e-ink technology that is designed to resemble real paper, so it is often referred to as ‘electronic paper’.
Unlike regular screens which have color-changing pixels, the e-reader screen consists of millions of black and white capsules filled with positive and negative currents floating on a layer of liquid.
When the black capsules are charged with positive current, it will rise to the surface of the screen, forming a black on white color and looks like ink on real paper.
That’s not all the difference between an e-reader screen and a regular tablet screen. While a regular tablet screen emits a bright light that can tire the eyes, the screen of an e-reader is usually dimmer, so it’s less glaring to the eyes and very comfortable to use for reading.
Plus, the e-reader screen uses less energy, which makes the battery last longer, with a single charge lasting up to more than a week.
How to Read an E-book with an E-reader
How to read with an e-reader is quite easy. Simply using a Wi-Fi connection, you can access the online store that is already available on the e-reader and instantly download and read your favorite e-book.

Alternatively, you can connect the e-reader to your computer with a USB cable and transfer the e-books stored on your computer, either by drag-and-drop or with supporting software such as Adobe Digital Editions or Caliber. Many e-readers also have an SD card slot, so you just have to plug in the SD card and you’re ready to read.
