I am thinking about buying a kindle or some type of reader, when I typed in kindle on Amazon I also get a fire HD 8. Can I get some advice on which is the best to get? What do you have?

I have a Kindle and a Samsung tablet. Kindle is mainly to read Ebooks and you can read it black and white only. Fire HD 8 is more like a tablet which is colorful screen. If you only enjoy reading books, then I will suggest you Kindle. Its battery lasts longer and perhaps it is less harmful to your eyesight as it is more like books. It is small and light. You can do many things with a tablet, including watching a movie etc. It depends on what you like.

I have a Kindle Fire and a Nook Simple Touch Glowlight. I prefer the Nook. But, a lot of authors only publish through Kindle Direct Publishing...though you can always install the Kindle app on another tablet. (I also have a Nook tablet but I don't like to read on it as much -- it's too bright even when set to the dimmest setting, and it hurts my eyes.) I think the Kindle Paperwhite is similar to the Nook Glowlight, but I haven't ever tried one of those to be able to form an opinion on it.

@andriaperry The Kindle Fire is basically a tablet that you can download books from the Kindle store on. You can also browse the web and use other apps on it. The Nook Glowlight is strictly for reading books, and it has no LED backlight, so it's similar to reading an actual book. At nighttime you can turn the glowlight option on, so a soft light lights up the screen, and you can adjust the brightness on that. Also with Nook, you have to buy your ebooks from Barnes and Noble, while with Kindle you buy them from Amazon. I was very happy with my Kindle until a few months ago when Amazon pissed me off (they closed my account for no reason and it was a huge hassle getting it reinstated), which is why I decided to check out Nook instead. Now I use my Nook ereader more than my Kindle Fire, since it is easier on my eyes.

I don't know. My daughter in law has something she calls a reader. She has dozens of books on it that she gets from Amazon. I use an IPad.

I know people who have them and love them. Other than that, I don't know much about them. I have read books on my iPad.

While I love my real books I would like to have the free books or books I have waiting for me to download on Amazon.

@andriaperry I've gotten free books. They may have been much better if I had paid for them.

I have a cheap off brand tablet that works good. A lot depends on what you want to do with it.

@andriaperry I can put the kindle app on my tablet. I have an older laptop that I put the kindle app on also. You could just do that. I would just read the reviews well on all of them.

I was given a kindle but declined since my old cellphone &/or old tablet work much better as Ebook reader.
