In our opinion, the Kindle is one of the best eBook readers on the market.
It is simple, lightweight, extremely low powered (so a single battery charge can last for weeks), and integrates great with Amazon.
Our favorite part is the true LCD screen, which does not have any backlighting.
Staring at anything with a backlight, like a computer screen, phone or tablet screen, or television is the same thing as staring at a light bulb.
These can cause eyestrain, a medical condition that can give headaches and effect eyesight, especially with prolonged use in low-light rooms.
The Kindle does not use a backlight.
