Technically, any device that allows you to read e-books is an e-book reader.

How do e-book readers work?

E-book readers use technology called E Ink. This technology can be considered as electronic paper. E Ink uses power to display text on a screen, but once it is displayed, it no longer requires power to keep the text visible. This saves the user a lot of power and thus e-book readers are considered green and environment-friendly. The downside of this technology was that it could display text and graphics in monochrome (one color) only. However, this is no longer the case as e-book readers are now available in color too.
E-book readers support Bluetooth, high-speed Internet connection and touch screen technology. The internet connection can be used to access various online stores that offer e-book downloads. Once the e-books are downloaded, it’s just matter of selecting, opening and flipping through the pages of your e-books.
