Kindle Oasis

My choice for the best ereader for bedtime reading (or any reading) is the Kindle Oasis. It’s awesome, hands down. I love the slightly larger 7″ screen and the sleek design.

The Kindle Oasis e-reader reads like real paper (actually, all Kindles do), which means it doesn’t throw off my sleep patterns like smartphones and tablets do if I use it right before bedtime. This is huge because I love reading in bed and own a ton more e-books and audiobooks than I do physical books.

The Kindle Oasis has all the bells and whistles. It’s waterproof if you want to use it poolside or on a boat. It’s also completely glare-free like paper, regardless of whether you’re out in the sun or in a dim bedroom. Since it’s thin and light to hold, I haven’t noticed my hand getting crampy while reading. Of course, it also has a 300 ppi hi-res screen, wi-fi, cellular connectivity, and has the ability to play Audible audiobooks.

It is safe to say I love my Kindle Oasis and use it pretty much every night. I will also add that it has never interfered with my melatonin production or with me getting sleepy in time to honor my strict bedtime. You can read more about the Kindle Oasis by clicking this link.


Kindle Paperwhite

If you need a mid-priced e-reader option, check out the Kindle Paperwhite. I owned the previous generation of the Paperwhite and always liked it, but wanted to upgrade to the larger screen of the Oasis.

This tiny bundle of coolness can fit inside larger coat pockets and is also waterproof, like the Oasis. It’s also glare-free and reads like regular paper. You can read more about the Kindle Paperwhite by clicking this link.

Kindle E-Reader

If you are looking for the budget-friendly OG Kindle, look no further than the Kindle E-Reader. This was the first Kindle I ever bought several years ago. The screen resolution isn’t quite as great as that of the Oasis or Paperwhite, but it gets the job done and is still glare-free and easy on the eyes. This is a great little wi-fi only e-reader.
