The best way to read an electronic book depends largely on personal preference. The options include using an e-reader, tablet computer, smartphone or traditional desktop computer
E-readers are a popular choice for reading electronic books, since that is their main function. There are many types of e-readers, including store-specific brands for Barnes & Noble and Amazon. These are good for people who only want the device for reading books and not much browsing on the Web or using other apps.
Tablet computers are better for people who want a device that is not only for reading e-books, but has regular computer functions. Smartphones are sometimes used for reading books, though it is not as common. The screen is small and can be hard on the eyes.
