E-Readers? Who needs one?
What exactly do you need an e-book reader for anyway? Why not just plunk down the extra dollars and take home an iPad or Droid table of some sort?
The answer is really twofold: E-Readers (as they are lovingly called) are primarily to read your e-books. If you need to browse the web or play music on them, most of these e-readers will do a good job, but that is not their purpose in life. They are to be toted along with you when you are on the road, pulled out when you have an idle hour at a coffee shop or ready at your beckon call from your nightstand.
Most importantly, they are there when you want a new book.
