For those of you who received an eReader as a gift this holiday season, you are probably excited to set it up and begin downloading books right away. But before you get started, dzo you really know about your new gadget? Here is a quick guide on a few popular eReaders in the market and how you should set up yours for a great reading experience.
The new 11th generation Kindle Paperwhite is an advanced version of its previous model. It features some great upgrades including longer battery life (up to 10 weeks!), faster page turns and thinner borders.
For beach readers, the glare free nature of E Ink digital paper makes an even better reading experience under direct and bright sunlight. Also, did we mention that the device is waterproof?
Another great, eye-friendly feature is the adjustable warm light. The screen can change from white to amber, and is adjustable for both color and intensity. You can set up a brightness level that is comfortable for your eyes.
