Most Popular eReader Accessories
- Covers: They’ll keep your reader from getting scratched and provide storage for other gear.
- Reading Lights: In order to provide a “book-like” reading experience, you’ll need a little lamp – preferably a clip-on – for reading when it’s dark. (The Kindle Paperwhite and Nook Simple GlowLight have built in lights)
- Screen Protectors: They’re designed to keep your reading window scratch-free without affecting visibility.
- Skins: Decals that decorate your wireless reader and can be removed without leaving a sticky residue.
Choosing a Cover for Your eReader
The best way of keeping your eBook reader safe and free of scratches is to keep it covered. No problem: There are hundreds — maybe even thousands — of covers and cases out there. But how do you choose the cover that’s right for you? Consider the options:
- Materials: There are covers made of leather, nylon, neoprene (a synthetic rubber), microfiber, foam and canvas. You can also cover your eReader with a skin, which is basically a plastic decal that’s become popular with cell phone users.
- Styles: eBook reader covers can be hinged to open like a book. They can be simple sleeves or messenger-style bags. They can have zippers, snaps, straps and/or velcro.
- Price: It can range from a couple of bucks for a skin to well over $100 for smartly styled, genuine leather covers.
Bundles:A Great Wayto Save on eReader Accessories
If you’ve just purchased your eBook reader, here’s a tip on getting more gear for less money: Consider bundles, also known as accessory kits. Bundles are an assortment of eReader accessories packaged together. They can include any combination of the following:
- Chargers and Adapters
- Reading Lights
- Screen Protectors
By purchasing these items as a set, you’ll pay less for more equipment. Two caveats:
- Make sure you really want all or most of the items in the bundle.
- Confirm that the items in the kit will work with your wireless reader model.
