There is nothing more pleasant than reading a book at home in the afternoon. The process of reading is like talking to yourself and the author. But not everyone has a lot of space in their homes for physical books. Carrying and keeping physical books is a big challenge. The emergence of E-reader has changed the way people read.


Below will talk about the two topics:

         - What Are the Pros and Cons of E-reader?

What Are the Pros and Cons of E-reader?


An E-reader also called an e-book reader or e-book device is a mobile electronic device that is designed primarily for the purpose of reading digital e-books and periodicals. In 2012, global sales of E-reader fell 26 percent from a peak of 23.2 million units in 2011. The reason for this "amazingly sharp decline" is the rise of more general-purpose tablets that offer e-book reading apps and many other features in a similar form factor.




         - An e-reader is a device designed to facilitate the reading of e-books. Its appearance is similar to a tablet computer, and it is smaller and more convenient to carry than ordinary books.

         - Use an e-paper instead of an LCD screen. This allows the battery to last longer, usually for several weeks.

         - It has good readability and resembles paper even in sunlight.




         - Mobile phones have become an irreplaceable part of people's lives, and everyone carries them everywhere. E-reader, like paper books before, are not easy to carry compared with mobile phones, and may even cause unnecessary burdens.

         - The graphic design of e-books is on the basis of the format and technical limitations of e-reader, as most e-ink readers do not support color displays, and they are limited in resolution and size.

         - Customers can only buy books from the limited e-books available in the online store (accessible through e-reader), and therefore cannot buy e-books from the open market.
