The magic of the eReader is that you can carry many books in the space of just one—and that you can access entire bookstores and libraries from almost anywhere. Here are just some of the things you can do with an eReader.
Hold Your Library In Your Hand
You’re sitting on a beach, ready to read the biography of a great historical figure, but partway through, you decide you’d rather read that action novel you picked up the other day. Normally you’d have to lug a suitcase through the sand to have that kind of variety, but with an eReader, you have a digital bookcase at your disposal. Read any digital book you own—without leaving the beach.
Get The Newspaper Without Opening The Front Door
If your morning routine consists of walking outside and searching the bushes for your morning paper, consider the fact that publishers can send newspapers to your eReader wirelessly. Just subscribe to a newspaper (or magazine) of your choice. Now, you can take your time in the morning knowing that the news will be waiting for you right where you expect it.
Share A Book With A Friend
Frequent readers are used to having friends ask them for book recommendations and may occasionally lend a copy. With some eReaders, you can lend a book to a friend for a period of time, during which you won’t have access to it on your own device. But you don’t have to worry about your friend forgetting they borrowed it, because the book is automatically returned when the lending period is up.
Buy A Book In The Great Outdoors
Camping is one of the few ways to experience nature in its purest form, but it’s also one of the quietest and most peaceful places to enjoy a good book. And with 3G mobile broadband and/or Wi-Fi connectivity, you can download a book just about anywhere.
Surf The Web At A Coffee Shop
You’re reading your eReader and drinking your coffee when you realize you forgot your tablet at home, but you need to check something online. Some eReaders have Internet browsers that you can use with Wi-Fi or 3G, so you won’t miss an email when you’re away from your other devices.
Instantly Look Up “Heliotropism”
One challenge of fully comprehending a book is knowing the definitions of difficult words. For instance, if you’re reading a book that uses the term “heliotropism” in reference to leaves and flowers, you might have to skim past it or grab a dictionary. Luckily, most eReaders have built-in dictionaries, so you can look up the word and find out that it simply means, “growth toward the sun,” and the mystery is solved.
