TL;DR We binge-read novels on several e-readers to find the best ones. A few page turners later, we found that Amazon’s Kindle Oasis is the absolute best e-reader you can buy.
To a bookworm, there is no greater pleasure in life than diving into a good book. Although many people still prefer good old paper books, digital natives and people who travel a lot love their ebooks and e-readers.
E-readers have come a very long way since Amazon’s first Kindle came out in 2007. Amazon still offers the widest range of e-readers, which includes the humble Kindle and the Rolls Royce of e-readers, the Kindle Oasis.
Of course, there are other great e-readers out there from Amazon’s main competitors: Kobo and Barnes & Noble.
We’ve tested all the latest e-readers to find out which ones are best for all kinds of buyers. Whether you love page-turning buttons, enjoy reading in the bath, or just want a nice cheap e-reader, there’s an e-reader for you in our buying guide.
Note that all Kindles come in two versions: with special offers and without. If you choose the ones with special offers, you will see ads on the lock screen and potentially elsewhere, but you will save money.
The Kindle Oasis may be our top pick, but for various reasons laid out in the slides below, you should also consider the Kobo Aura One, Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite, the Barnes & Noble Glowlight Plus, and Amazon’s cheapest Kindle.
