Some e-readers are backlit, but others use e-ink that’s easy on the eyes, allowing readers to peruse pages for hours. With e-ink, it’s impossible to read in the dark. Just like a classic book light, the clip-on e-reader light brightens up pages for hours of endless reading, even into the dark of night when you’re unable to turn on lights for fear of waking the family.

Car Charger

For the reader on the go! Know a ceaseless traveler who needs to be entertained on long plane rides? Give the ability to charge the e-reader through the car on the way to the airport. E-readers take only a short while to charge and the charge lasts for up to a couple months. This way, your giftee will never be without favorite stories and thought-provoking articles.
