E-Ink readers, which are available from a number of manufacturers, have displays that are designed to resemble ink on printed paper. They're used primarily for reading eBooks.
Note: E-Ink Kindles work a little differently than the E-Ink readers covered in this profile because they're made for Kindle Books. If you have an E-Ink Kindle, please see our device profile for E-Ink Kindles instead.
- Adobe Digital Editions for Mac or Windows (to transfer EPUB and PDF eBooks from a computer to an E-Ink reader)
Note: If you have a Sony Reader Wi-Fi, you can download eBooks from your library right on your device, without the need for Adobe Digital Editions.
