An e‑book is a com­pact library that is always with you. Even the 8 GB mod­el (of which about 6.5 GB is ded­i­cat­ed to files) holds about 12,000 FB2 books. Impres­sive, right? This is an indis­pens­able device for read­ing lovers, school­child­ren, stu­dents. But what is the best e‑book to buy in 2022? We have com­piled a selec­tion of books that, in our opin­ion, are the most inter­est­ing.

What was taken into account in the rating

  • rel­e­vance of the mod­els. The books list­ed in the top are 2020–2021 edi­tions. The mod­el you like will not be out­dat­ed.
  • Sup­port­ed file types. FB2 and EPUB read almost all books. But DOC, PDF and TXT are sup­port­ed less fre­quent­ly. But these for­mats are often need­ed for work.
  • Price.
  • Reviews of the best e‑books on the Inter­net. This is a sub­jec­tive para­me­ter that was not includ­ed in the final score table.
  • Addi­tion­al fea­tures (for exam­ple, voice act­ing of the text).

We have already talked in detail about how to choose an e‑book for your­self or as a gift. Now let’s move on to the top best e‑books of 2022.

PocketBook 606

The top best e‑books of 2022 are opened by a bud­get mod­el for 7,980 rubles. This is a basic prod­uct, equipped with a min­i­mum of func­tions. The book has the lat­est gen­er­a­tion screen (E‑Ink Car­ta):

  • the screen does not fade or glare, the text is clear­ly vis­i­ble, even if you read it on the street, under the sun;
  • the eyes do not get tired of the screen, it is suit­able for long read­ing, unlike smart­phones;
  • E‑Ink is eco­nom­i­cal: if you work with a book 2–3 hours a day, you will have to charge it about once a month.

  • non-touch dis­play. But­ton con­trol is eas­i­er for chil­dren and the elder­ly. The child will not acci­den­tal­ly click on the screen and will not delete any­thing impor­tant, will not knock down the set­tings — for exam­ple, the font size;
  • sup­ports many for­mats: PDF, DOCX, DOC, EPUB, TXT, FB2, RTF, CHM, BMP, JPEG, PNG, TIFF;
  • there are addi­tion­al func­tions: cal­cu­la­tor, cal­en­dar, dic­tio­nary with the abil­i­ty to trans­late the select­ed word. Con­ve­nient when learn­ing for­eign lan­guages ​​and work­ing with a text­book.

PocketBook 628

One of the best mid-range Pock­et­Book e‑books, com­bin­ing nice design and func­tion­al­i­ty. The price at the time of writ­ing is 11,140 rubles.

The book is equipped with an E‑Ink Car­ta screen. You can read both in the dark and in bright light thanks to the soft back­light.

SMART­light tech­nol­o­gy auto­mat­i­cal­ly adjusts the bright­ness and col­or tem­per­a­ture (tint) of the screen depend­ing on the time of day. You can use the default set­tings or cre­ate your own.

A diag­o­nal of 6 inch­es is enough for com­fort­able work with files. You can con­trol the book through the touch screen or using the keys.

  • you can con­nect to the Inter­net via Wi-Fi;
  • you can store the nec­es­sary mate­ri­als through the Pock­et­Book Cloud ser­vice. The files will be in the cloud stor­age, and you can access them not only from the book, but also from anoth­er device (for exam­ple, a smart­phone). There is an app for Android and iOS.

E‑book PocketBook 633

A com­pact device (108x161 mm) with 16 GB of built-in mem­o­ry (more than 20 thou­sand books in FB2 for­mat will fit) and a col­or screen for 14,980 rubles. The gad­get is not only minia­ture, but also light (160 g). Mono­chrome coun­ter­parts are usu­al­ly 20–30 g heav­ier and larg­er in size. At the same time, the design­ers left the screen at 6 inch­es.

The body is made of plas­tic. It is mat­te, vel­vety, pleas­ant to the touch. Fin­ger­prints do not remain on the sur­face.

As in many mod­ern read­ers, there is an E‑Ink Car­ta screen. In this case, it is coat­ed with a Col­or Fil­ter Array. It retains the gen­tle effect on the eyes that E‑Ink tech­nol­o­gy pro­vides. At the same time, the image is col­ored, but not bright — it can be com­pared with news­pa­per print­ing.

The design of the book is min­i­mal­is­tic — for those who want to empha­size their refined taste. There are no but­tons, touch con­trol is avail­able. The case is black, and there is a thin steel frame around the screen. It looks nice and pro­vides extra rigid­i­ty to the hull.
