A new e-reader is on the top of my list for the Holiday Season. With so many choices, I decided to ask some of my favorite authors what THEIR favorite e-readers are and why. Hopefully you'll find this list helpful, too!
Bethany Lopez- I have a Kindle Fire. I like the fact that I can see the covers in color and that it has the same features as a tablet.
Suzan Tisdale - Kindle Fire- I can read books, check emails, listen to music, play videos, all sorts of stuff. AND check out e-books from the local library without leaving the house.
Rebecca T Dickson- Kindle Paperwhite. I'm a die-hard fan. I love that I can customize the font size, highlight and share quotes, download and read in less than a minute and that it's affordable. (Everyone in my house has his own.)
Molly Greene- I use the original b&w Kindle, I love the portability of an e-reader and the fact that I can stuff it with some much reading material. I will never be bored again!
Liz Long- Kindle Fire. The size allows me to carry it everywhere and I love the fact that it has the lit screen - I know it hurts some people's eyes, but it was hard to read at night on my old Kindle even with a nightlight! I also love the highlighting feature so that I can mark certain phrases or character development, as well as make a note of questions I might have if I plan to review the book later. Plus, c'mon - how cool is it to have this gadget and feel like we're headed into Jetsons territory?!
Shannon Mayer- Kindle.I use a regular old Kindle and I love it! It is light and easy to read. AND it free's up my other hand to rub my hubby's back because I can turn the pages with one finger which means we're both happy

Terri Giuliano Long- I swore I'd never read on an e-reader, but after reading my first Kindle book, I was hooked. I love that I can move back and forth, make notes, and bookmark pages I want to read again. I read on the Kindle application on my iPad. I have a Kindle, but from spending so much time on the computer--10+ hours/day--my eyes are shot. The iPad is bigger, making books easier to read.
Lauren Clark- Kindle, with the keyboard at the bottom. I've used the word look-up and highlighting, but I use it for the audiobook function and I've also used it to "read" my own manuscripts back to me -- while editing -- because it is better than me reading to myself!
Christine Nolfi- I read on an iPad. I like the larger screen, and the ability to increase type size if I'm tired but want to keep reading.
Allie B- I use my iPad and have the Kindle, Kobo and iBooks apps. I love the iPad because I can have multiple books on the go and having all three apps lets me take advantage of sales or opportunities to read books that are unavailable across all platforms.
Toby Neal- Kindle, the black & white, button one, and I love it! It has a very weak wifi, but I can download books and highlight on it.
Raine Thomas- I have one of the early Kindle models and it has treated me very well. I love that I can store so many books on it. The danger is that Amazon makes it so easy to buy new books. My to-read pile is enormous!!
Patricia Paris- Kindle. It was a gift last year from my daughter. I love the flexibility of being able to have any kind of book I may want to read depending on my mood in the moment. I love that it is backlit and I can read it in sun or shade with no problem. I love that I can make the print extra large when forget my glasses. I
also love the jazzy, cheerful, cherry red leather cover I got for it on e-bay for less than ten bucks!
