Reading has always been like an escape for you. That thing you do when you've had a bad day or want to disconnect from the rest of the world for a few hours. But you read too many books. You don't have any more space. You've thought about turning to e-reading.
If you're about to immerse yourself in the world of e-reading, there are a few things you might be interested in knowing beforehand. Although you probably know the advantages of reading e-books already, there are many other important characteristics that will greatly enhance the whole experience.
iPads are a great device for starting your e-reading adventure, and there are loads of complimentary applications that you can choose from. We're here to help you compare and decide.
