E-reader or E-book reader is mainly designed for the purpose of reading books in a digital manner.
Though any device that can display text on a screen may act as an e-reader, the actual e-reader devices optimize portability, readability and battery life for this purpose. Their main advantages over printed books are portability since an e-reader is capable of holding thousands of books while weighing less than one printed book.
If you want to buy one, here is a suggestion on top most e-readers, check this out.
Amazon Kindle Oasis (2019)
Amazon’s Kindle Oasis is currently the best Kindle available, though it’s also the most expensive. It has a gorgeous 7-inch display, a pixel density of 300 pixels per inch with well-placed navigation buttons.
You don’t need to constantly adjust the screen light as it built-in ambient light sensors which adapt to your surroundings. It offers two types of internal storage facilities, one with 8GB of storage and another with 32GB.

Amazon claims the Kindle Oasis can last up to six weeks on a single charge, though you’ll likely need to plug it in after a week or two of use (depending on your settings). It’s still more than good enough for most people, and it’s impressive it can go so long given how thin the device is.
Ebooks are pretty lightweight, so internal storage isn’t generally as important for an ebook reader as it is for a tablet or smartphone. It’s possible to get library books on your Kindle, too. Overdrive has a simple interface that lets you send ebooks to your Kindle over the internet — no plugging in required.
As far as new features go, the 2019 Kindle Oasis a color-adjustable front light. The screen’s color tone can shift to warmer hues at night, making it easier on the eyes and protecting you from blue light.
