Buying an e-reader is a challenge, particularly given the vast choices and different models available to consumers. Protect Your Bubble, specialty insurance company, has a few tips for those who are thinking about purchasing an e-reader. Protect Your Bubble looks the top 5 on the market at the moment.

IPAD MINI – c.£256.00
Apple has all but cornered the market in tablets, and the release of the iPad Mini made waves even before it was released to the public. Since it does everything a tablet can do plus function as an e-reader, it tops the list for those who want something more than a simple e-reader. Reading books in direct sunlight may be a chore because of the glare, but with the availability of 275,000 apps, it is a minor inconvenience.

KINDLE – c.£110.00
The reader that started it all, the Kindle is an excellent choice for those who want an e-reader and nothing but an e-reader. A long battery and technology that lets readers read under any light mean it makes a solid choice. No audio or removable memory means it is a bit cheaper than many other choices on the list.

KINDLE FIRE HD – c.£125.00
For just a bit more, many can have an e-reader that also has capacity for sound and faster downloads. The Fire has an LCD screen instead of a grey screen, so adjusting means switching from brightness instead of grey scale. For those who want to watch movies and read, this is a solid choice.

Nook makes a few different models of tablets, but the Simple Touch is the only official e-reader. WiFi capability makes downloading books quick and easy, but the keyboard is a tad cumbersome to type on. A sound choice for those who seek an e-reader to carry easily and seek the free WiFi.

Parents wanting to get kids to read more would enjoy the Kobo’s rewards feature. When a reader reads a certain number of books or reaches a certain benchmark, it gives out a reward. Lacking 3G can be a prayer or curse, particularly with children who like to download lots of games and apps.

No matter what e-reader selected, insurance is always a wise decision. Protect Your Bubble’s gadget insurance can cover theft, accidental damage, water damage and as an optional extra, loss. Visit to learn more about insurance and get a free quote.
