Ereaders (also known as ebook readers) are available from a number of manufacturers, and have displays that resemble ink on printed paper. They're used primarily for reading ebooks.
Note: Kindle ereaders work a little differently than other ereaders in this profile because they're made specifically for Kindle Books. If you have a Kindle ereader, please see our Kindle ereaders page instead.
- Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) for Mac or Windows (to transfer EPUB and PDF ebooks from a computer to some ereaders)

- NOOK GlowLight Plus
- Kobo Sage, Libra 2, Libra H2O, Forma, Nia, Elipsa, Aura ONE, Aura H2O Edition 2, Aura Edition 2, and Clara HD

Note: Instead of using ADE to transfer ebooks to a Tolino ereader, you can borrow EPUB and PDF ebooks from your library's website in your Tolino browser and download them directly on your device.
