It's not surprising that technology has changed the way we experience many things and the way in which we interpret the world. From movies to music to games, the written word has always been a large part of computers and modern technology. It is certainly not the case that the love of language is being lost to computers. Language is a progressive and ever-evolving process that has been transformed into many different mediums that are present in today's society. There are many benefits to eReaders and, most importantly, you shouldn't feel that eReaders detract from the reading experience - in fact in many instances, they improve it. The internet has opened up the possibilities for people to transfer large quantities of information across the globe in seconds. New and smaller platforms that allow us to experience and enjoy language and literature have opened up the market for eBooks. There are many types of eBook readers and each person will use them in different ways and see them in a different lights. A student at university may want a place to carry all of their textbooks in their pocket and the traveler will want to be able to carry some of the great works of literature with them as they explore the worlds they read about in novels. Whether your vice is getting lost in fiction and wanting to solve and read about murder mysteries from anywhere in the world, or you have a great love of technology or the natural world and want to delve into some great works of non-fiction, an eBook reader can easily cater for everyone's needs. So, you hear all of these stories about eBooks outselling standard books and you see people reading them on the train, park benches and beaches and you wonder what all the fuss is about. You may ask yourself: Should I buy an eReader? In the same way that vinyl gave way to CDs and CDs gave way to MP3s - the way we read books and read words in general is always changing. While it would be simple to just say 'If you can't beat them, join them,' to those wanting to hold on to tradition for as long as possible, there is a bigger issue at hand here. If you are going to make the move into eBooks and eReaders, you should do so, not because you feel that you should copy what everyone else is doing, but because you want to experience many of the benefits. And there are many benefits. To be able to take thousands of books with you in your bag, pocket

or the palm of your hand, you can easily pull it out and access your personally library whenever you're waiting for something, want to kill five minutes, or you are traveling. EReaders are great for going on a vacation you can take many books for the weight of a small paperback, you can still simulate turning the pages and you can even see the screen perfectly in full sunlight with anti-glare screens that are available on many eReaders. The eInk technology that is present in many eReaders means that you can go for weeks without having to charge the battery with many hours of reading every day. Whether you're reading in bed, on the bus or on a beach on the other side of the world - if you love reading, you'll love your eReader. What to look for when buying an eReader If you want to make the plunge and buy an eReader, there are some things that you may want to look out for - just so you can get the eReader that has all the features that you would want. There are many eBook readers available to the consumer, giving buyers many options that can be overwhelming to a first time buyer. The choice over which eReader to buy can be broken down into a manageable decision by determining what your needs are. If you already have a large digital library on your computer, it will be more important to ensure that a new reader will be compatible with their library's file formats than if a new library is going to be created from scratch just for the new device. If most reading will be done in during breaks in the workday, a smaller size may be required for easy stowing. This may not be a big problem as many eReaders are small, but if you want a particularly small eReader, check out a pocket edition. The two main screen types available on eReaders are eInk and backlit LCD. The eInk displays are designed to be easy on the eyes by presenting high contrast black text to readers. This type of display is perfect for conditions with good lighting such as outdoors or in the office. Color eInk displays are just recently entering the market, but the majority of affordable eInk devices are incapable of displaying color images and you may not feel as though they are worth it. Backlit LCD is closer to the experience of reading from a laptop or tablet PC. This can be perfect for night readers but can be hard to read in direct sunlight. There are more complaints of eye strain with backlit LCD displays, but this is not an issue for all users. Different models of eReaders have different control options. Many new models, especially those that have multiple functions, utilize full touch screen. Older style of dedicated eReaders often just have hardware controls limited directly to the functions necessary to switch books and turn pages. Customers should weigh their preference on how they would like to interact with their device when shopping for a particular model.

A few eReaders are designed to work with particular online libraries, often with a limiting or even proprietary eBook format. The most forgiving eReaders, when it comes to file formats, tend to be third-party devices with no allegiance to any particular library or online store. This is a plus on the capability end, but the lack of subsidized pricing from partners and smaller companies is apparent in the final price tag. These devices tend to be on the more expensive end of the spectrum. Adobe's PDF file type and the ePub format make up the most widely available free eBooks on the internet. These two formats are also supported by a wide range of devices. In the Age of Convergence, even dedicated devices such as eReaders are often loaded with extra functions. These options can be big selling points, depending on what the customer may be looking for. Some of the noteworthy wells and whistles include mp3 playback for users interested in reading with background music, web browsing, and text to voice to transform those eBooks into audio books which some readers may particularly enjoy. There is an eReader out there for almost every taste and need imaginable. Whether you want a multipurpose device but don't need a full tablet, or just need a dedicated reader for a quick read on the go, the choices are out there. An eReader can allow readers to carry thousands of books while taking up around the same space as one book and most importantly, not reducing your reading experience.
