Types of E-Books from Consumer Reports
These devices, including Amazon Kindles, Sony Readers, and Barnes & Noble Nooks, focus primarily on displaying e-books and are all we include in our Ratings.

Many have black-and-white E Ink screens, and so offer decent or better type and long battery life, while others have LCD screens, with shorter battery life and less crisp type but the ability to reproduce color.
