If you don’t know your Nooks from your Glos, and talk about EPUB and mobi leaves you scratching your head, don’t despair! It’s pretty simple to compare the eBook reader market leaders: Kobo, Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook. Here are the main differences:
E Ink screen – The E Ink screen is what sets eBook readers apart from other devices. The best thing about it is that it doesn’t tire out and damage your eyes if you look at it for long periods (unlike tablet and computer screens). It’s the closest thing you can get to reading a regular book page, and it allows eBook readers to run for weeks on a single charge. Kobo, Nook and Kindle all have state of the art E ink screens. The 2014 released Kindle Paperwhite and Kobo Glo have the newest version, while the Barnes & Noble Nook Glowlight is a generation behind.
Reading lights – All three manufacturers’ newest editions include a built-in reading light which allows you to read in the dark. The reading lights for the similarly priced Kindle Paperwhite, Nook Glowlight, and Kobo Glo are all comparable, while the Kindle Voyage, at a higher price point has a light that automatically adjusts to suit the conditions.
DRM Scheme – The Amazon Kindle has its own file ecosystem – which could be irksome if you want to use your reader to upload your own ebooks that you didn’t purchase directly from Amazon. Kobo supports the widest variety of ebook formats, including graphic friendly CBZ and CBR files. The Nook supports the globally compatible EPUB and PDF file types, and most of the books on the Barnes & Noble store come in EPUB format. Note that with the use of a free and simple file converter like Calibre, you can read most formats on most devices.
Price – The Barnes & Noble Nook just beats out the competition as the most budget friendly eReader with similar specs.
Pottermore is an interactive and community-based site that gives Potter fans insider access to information about the Harry Potter saga from J.K. Rowling. The site is free to use and allows readers to participate in stories, get creative, and enjoy the books over and over again.

finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product or service.

If you're unsure about anything, seek professional advice before you apply for any product or commit to any plan.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or 'Advertisement' are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment when you click on those buttons or apply for a product. You can learn more about how we make money here.
When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.

Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan, we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
