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.

If you want the short version, here it is.

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.

    It’s nice to have some guidelines to this question. And I might mention that a corollary to these points is how much you want to pay. If you just want to read, and can get an e-reader for about $100 versus $500 or more that an iPad would set you back, then that settles it quickly.
