Dear T2T: My parents are willing to get me an e-reader but I really don’t know which one to get. Do any of you guys have one and which one is your favorite and why is it your favorite? It would really help to hear from someone my age who has used these. — Technology Newbie

Each e-reader has its pros and cons. I have a 3rd Generation Kindle. It has black and white display, with a keyboard. I like this because it’s so lightweight. It’s easy to carry around. In the daylight, it is also easy to read, there is no glare but the disadvantage is that you cannot read with any lights on. You are able to go on to the internet via Wi-Fi. This one does not have a touch screen, so you can play basic games, like card games, word games, etc. If I were to buy a new Kindle, I would buy the Kindle Fire because of the touch screen. My aunt has one, it is more complicated than the 3rd Generation Kindle, but she loves it. You also have the option of getting a Nook, which is almost exactly like the Kindle, but runs a different program. It is a full touch screen, you are able to go on the internet, play games such as angry birds, temple run, etc. The Nook and Kindle are both really cool. It all depends on your preference. Look at the reviews on each one to decide what generation you want. Go into the stores and try them out. These are all very expensive though, so choose wisely. Hope this helped!

The Kindle 3 would be the best choice because it has 5 star battery life and memory capacity. The size of the tablet is very compact and convenient for all ages. It also has a very high speed due to its Touch 3G software system. Aside from books, you can also select newspapers, magazines, and blogs from the Kindle’s library to browse. It is also very convenient to the user because it has a direct access to the Kindle Store where you can browse a variety of books. The Kindle 3 is the clear winner and choice for the best e-book reader.
