Nathan Parker Posted October 23, 2022 Share Posted October 23, 2022 I tend to do a decent amount of reading before I go to bed. In the past, I used an Amazon Kindle Paperwhite to read my books, but I gave up my Amazon account a while back and gave away my Kindle (I got tired of shopping on Amazon, and so far, I’ve lived without it). I’ve been using an iPad mini instead for reading, both during the day and at night. I love the iPad mini in general to the point where I’m selling my iPad Pro and just using my iPad mini as my tablet. It runs all my e-Reader apps (Accordance, Logos, Barnes & Noble Nook, ChristianBook Reader, my local library apps, and Scribd), plus with Safari, I can access Internet Archive, and I have a PDF viewer app that syncs with iCloud. So far, I haven’t noticed any major cause of sleep disruption by using the iPad at night, although the Kindle did seem a little easier on the eyes. I have changed some settings to the iPad for at night, including Do Not Disturb, lower the brightness, activate Dark Mode, and activate Night Shift, to make the iPad easier on the eyes at night. Since there doesn’t seem to be much of a sleep disruption for me using the iPad at night with these settings, should I keep using the iPad optimized for night reading, or would it be better on my overall eye and sleep health to move to an eInk eReader at night? Since I no longer have an Amazon account, I’d consider a Barnes & Noble Nook since I have a B&N account and books in that account. It seems the Nook can open my ChristianBook.com eBooks and my library’s eBooks using Adobe Digital Editions, but then I’d have to mess with syncing. Plus it would change what I read at night since I’d have to stick with B&N, ChristianBook, or library books (all my other books I couldn’t read at night). I’ve looked at Boox eInk tablets, but I don’t know if I want to get into that. Thanks! 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
