    Hi Folks, I'm looking for a good Kindle or similar device to read IT textbooks. I used to own a small kindle which is great for novels, but can someone recommend a decent device that would make reading IT textbooks a good experience. Thank you.

    I hear they got this new technique, they glue parchments together, they call it a book...

    You are possibly best off looking for a tablet in that respect or using the kindle cloud reader with the reading mode enabled

    Kindles are great, but not for IT books that rely on a lot of images etc

    Ageed I think Kindle sucks for educational / reference books. I much prefer physical.

    Failing that I'd just use online resources, blogs, CBT, videos, etc. Get a bigger monitor or an additional monitor.

    Laptop with matte display works in some situations, but mostly I then do CBT, as I don't like reading books off a screen in general.

    $30 is a small price to pay to have something readable that doesn't take up my screen.

    Only issue is if going on holiday and want to read a lot and travel light, in which case a kindle is fine for non referenece books. IT or Engineering books are generally too large to travel with.
