eReader benefits for Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Monday 23 January 2012
Of course, there are some possible drawbacks to consider. eReaders are expensive to buy, but if you read a lot you'll eventually save money because books are cheaper. You do have to learn the technical aspects, which can be difficult for the foggy headed. If you aren't tech savvy, you might want to have someone show you how to navigate. I haven't had any eye strain from the screen, but I know some people do better with paper. For me, since it's not lit up like a computer screen, it's a nice relief from my laptop or the TV.
If you're interested in getting an eReader, here's information to help you decide which one's best for you, from About.com's Guide to Portables Jason Hidalgo: eReader Reviews.

I highly highly recommend buying a cover for your ebook reader to protect the screen when it's not in use. (And if you're prone to lose things, make it a brightly coloured one, because it makes it so much easier to spot!) I sat up in bed once and my weight rested on my elbow which was accidentally on the screen. Amazon let me have the replacement at less than half the price of the original, but it was still an expensive mishap.
