Best eBook Readers (best eReaders) to buy

Let’s find out, dividing the list by brand, what are the best eBook Readers (best eReaders) to buy!

Kindle – Best eBook Readers (best eReaders) to buy

Father Amazon, a few years ago now, came up with an innovative tool for modern and non-modern readers: the Kindle, a small device with which we can read and carry the books we love most with us!


Each eBook Reader (eReader) reads different formats, specifically those supported by the Kindle are: MOBI, AZW, TXT e PDF; the first two are only read by Kindles, therefore this leads to being able to buy e-books exclusively from Amazon. Libraries have also created digital circuits where you can borrow e-books as if they were normal books, if you decide to buy a Kindle you will not be able to use the service as this player does not support ePUB.


With a classic size of 6 inches, Kindles have a typical display E-Ink which simulates paper and – thanks to direct lighting – ensures that even reading in complete darkness does not become tiring for the eyes. The brightness of the screen is adjustable, so you can decide how bright the light will be.

Memory and connection

A Kindle proposes on average 4GB of internal memory (of which 3GB are totally usable), this size is equivalent to about two thousand books. However, the capacity problem is not unsolvable, the device will in fact be connected to your Amazon account in which all your purchases will not be lost; if you decide to delete an e-book from the eBook Reader (eReader) it will simply remain in memory in the Kindle cloud and can be re-downloaded later.

The Kindle web connection can be of two types depending on how old the model is: WI-FI o WI-FI + 3G (referring therefore to the telephone operator in your possession).

Kindle: Best eBook Readers (best eReaders) to buy

The models that I would recommend are the Kindle Paperwhite and the Kindle Oasis: the first is simple and intuitive, suitable for beginners and does not expect too much; the Oasis model instead has a larger screen (7 inches) and is water resistant.

The Paperwhite is a Amazon’s Choice and is often put on offer for €99, has WI-FI connection and is available in both black and white. If you are a novice without too many pretensions and want to choose a guarantee like the one offered by Amazon, you will fall in love with such a simple and linear model.

The Kindle Oasis is objectively more “for battle” given its resistance to water, a perfect eBook Reader (eReader) if you love spending a lot of time outside and reading even in situations… not very dry!

We also point out the release of the new medium-range Amazon KInde 2019, a simple but versatile eBook Reader of which you can read our review.

Kobo – Best eBook Readers (best eReaders) to buy

Kobo is the family of eBook Readers (eReaders) from home Mondadori, a product that has long boasted the primacy of the cheapest digital player. Now even Kobos can be found at higher prices, but seeing their features makes it worth it.


In this case the format is supported ePUB along with PDF, JPEG, GIF, TXT, HTML and so much more! This great variety of formats therefore also allows library lending without any difficulty. The number of stores where you can buy is also larger, with Kobo you can buy from Kobo Store, Mondadori and in some cases even Bookshop.


The Kobo display varies 6 to 7.8 inches (the latter is a perfect size for comics) and the display is kind E-Ink (therefore with a screen that resembles the pages of a book allowing comfortable reading both in the dark and with plenty of light), even if the latest models have the model E-Ink Carta, i.e. clearer pages and sharper writing. Illumination can be of two types:

  • Comfort Light (blue light illumination with adjustable intensity)
  • Comfort Light PRO (this type reduces exposure to blue light by turning the page more towards yellow, thus avoiding eye problems and disturbed sleep during night reading)

Memory and connection

The Kobo memory is both internal and expandable, this is found only in some models and is very useful if you decide to use the eBook Reader (eReader) also to read comics (usually much heavier than other books).

The connection is WI-FI only.

Kobo: Best eBook Readers (Best eReaders) To Buy

The models that I would recommend regarding the Kobo are the Kobo Aura ONE e Kobo Clara HD.

The Kobo Aura ONE is totally waterproof and presents 8GB of memory (6000 e-books), the type of lighting is Comfort Light PRO and has a negligible weight: 230g.

At an advantageous price you could instead grab the Kono Clara HD, the latest eBook Reader (eReader) released by the brand. The pages are browsed smoothly and the 8GB of internal memory are always present, the Comfort Light PRO will then make you say goodbye to headaches.

We tested this E-reader and were fascinated by it: here is our review of the Kobo Clara HD.

Tolino – Best eBook Readers (best eReaders) to buy

This brand has a particularity: it does not belong to particular stores but relies on various partners, in Italy for example the partner of Tolino is IBS.


This player supports formats ePUB, PDF e TXTthus becoming like the Kobo a tool in which it is possible to take advantage of the library loan.


Tolino offers its customers one anti-glare screen, with integrated and adjustable lighting. The screen is of the E-Ink type from 300 dpi, ensuring a smooth and fast effect when changing pages. this eBook Reader (eReader) also features the anti-ghosting technology, which eliminates shadows and traces of the previous page when browsing the e-book. But the most innovative feature is certainly the technology Smart Lightor a luminosity that passes from blue light to yellow light based on the time of day: starting from a blue light in the morning, we arrive at yellow light when it gets dark!

Memory and connection

The brand’s most innovative product (i.e. the Tolino Vision 4 HD) offers up to 8GB of memory, 6 of which are fully usable; is also available Tolino Cloud with 5 GB available, its function is like that of Amazon and Kobo accounts and allows you to have more e-books without filling the memory excessively.

The connection to the web is of the WI-FI type.

Tolino: best eBook Readers (best eReaders) to buy

The model I recommend for this brand is the aforementioned Tolino Vision 4 HD, available with both 4GB and 8GB. This model features Smart Light technology and is water resistant.

PoketBook – Best eBook Readers (best eReaders) to buy

PocketBook is clearly a more niche brand in the eBook Reader landscape than the names you read above, but that doesn’t mean its products aren’t as good as, if not better than, those of the mainstream players!


Each eBook Reader (eReader) reads different formats, specifically those supported by PocketBooks are: PDF, PDF(DRM), EPUB, EPUB(DRM), DJVU, FB2, FB2.ZIP, DOC, DOCX, RTF, PRC, TXT, CHM, HTM, HTML, MOBI, ACSM. Then we have support for audio formats MP3 and M4B for audiobook compatible models. As you may have already guessed from the huge number of supported formats, the PocketBook system is extremely open and versatile. PocketBook also has its official store (bookland.com), but in our opinion this is still not too well stocked compared to the other stores in the digital reading circuit; the breadth of formats…
