If you’re thinking of getting an e-reader this year, you might want to consider this review by CNet. It’s one of the most extensive reviews of e-readers and tablets I have ever seen.

1. Decide what the heck you want to do. If all you want to do is read, then buy an e-reader. If you want a device that lets you read, play games, watch videos, read and send e-mails and so on, then buy a tablet.
2. It really comes down to a Kindle versus an iPad. But if you answer No. 1 correctly, you’ll have no problem figuring out point No. 2.
