I’ve had my Kindle for years now and still love it (here's my enthusiasm in a post awhile back).

You can download the Kindle app on any device: How to download the Kindle app.Some of the benefits of having actual e-reader are no glaring backlight, no distractions, and longer battery life.
It’s about the closest you can get to a print book.
