The debate between owning physical books and making the switch to e-reading has been ongoing for years. Would you give up the smell and feeling of turning actual pages to get the convenience of owning a good e-reader? To that question, we say:
You can still enjoy the feeling of a physical book and have the convenience of an e-reader. It’s all about context. After all, it’s not ~that~ simple to give up on paperbacks, yet going for e-books is perfect for those who don’t have a lot of space at home and wish to live that minimalist life. If you’re ready for that, here are some e-readers under Php 10,000 to invest in.
When thinking of e-readers, the classic Kindle probably comes first in mind. It’s one of the oldest e-reader brands and has been around since 2007. Fun fact: it sold out within five and a half hours during its initial release! And there’s no wondering why it’s been a crowd favorite since it’s lightweight, you can download thousands of books straight to your Kindle without a computer, it has on-page controls, and adjustable front lights for indoor and outdoor reading. You can also connect it to Audible if you wish to switch to audiobooks.
The Amazon Kindle is available online for Php 6,100.
If you wish to have an upgrade from the classic Kindle, the new Kindle Paperwhite is your next best option. It has basically the same specs with the classic Kindle with some cool added features like cellular connectivity, more color options, and most importantly, it’s waterproof. Vacations will be more fun as you can chill by the pool without having to worry when someone randomly decides to jump in!
The Kindle Paperwhite is available online at Php 8,500.
