Amazon Kindle vs. books, which is a better choice?

This is one of the topics that will remain active for at least a year more. The world is changing for hardcore readers now.

Sony Reader Wi-Fi now available for $99 for a limited period

A smart move from Sony put its Wi-FI e-reader, the Reader Wi-Fi, at just $99 from the usual $149 price. This gives you a direct $50 discount. This offer stands only till December 24th. So, how will this affect the e-reader market? Not much really, if you ask me.

Now, to take on these devices, Kobo is introducing its $99 e-reader, the Kobo Touch with Offers. This is basically the same as the $130 version of the Kobo e-reader, but the difference that comes with the price drop is, you will get offers or ads on your screen when you have put the device in sleep mode or have turned if off, as well as in places that the company calls as “discreet places.”
