The Boyue Meebook P78 Pro is a great e-reader for those who want an anti-Kindle device. It has a power-efficient e-ink display and conservative chipset, allowing it to last for several hours each day before needing to be charged. The 8" screen size makes it ideal for reading manga, and the device can access the Google Play Store for additional apps. It also has wifi capabilities, but users should turn it off when not in use to maximize battery life. Note taking is possible on this device, but may be better suited to smaller screens such as the Boox Nova Air or Nova Air C.


The Kobo Libra 2 is an excellent e-reader for those looking for a device with a crisp 300ppi screen, 32GB of storage, waterproof capabilities, dark mode, comfort light, USB-C port and hackability. It also has Overdrive integration allowing users to borrow library books with ease and Adobe Digital Editions compatibility. However, some customers have noted that the hard plastic cover feels cheap and there is not enough control over line spacing or margins.
