Hand holding the COOL-ER eBook Reader

E Ink technology mimics
real paper!

Read any good books lately? We have, yet our shelves are completely bereft of the papery, space-thieving blighters. And that's because we've been perusing the hottest fiction, romance, fantasy, horror and more using the incredible COOL-ER eBook Reader.

Set to become the iPod of eReaders, this wafer thin gizmo will revolutionise the way you read and buy books. Because let’s face it, much as we love good ol’ paper and ink, the relentless march of technology waits for no one - after all, you're reading from a screen right now.

360 degree view of the COOL-ER eBook Reader

45% lighter than other eReaders

Capable of storing between 500-800 novels, the 1GB COOL-ER (expandable via SD) uses E-ink technology to replicate the experience of reading a book. It has to be seen to be disbelieved; the glare-free 6" display looks just like paper. You'll be tempted to lick your finger to turn the pages. It's also unaffected by direct sunlight, so you can carry on reading wherever you may roam. Amazing!

25% Lifetime discount from coolerbooks.com

Download 1000s of books!

Simply download your books from any of the countless online sources floating around in cyberspace and drag them on to this USB friendly slice of genius. It's easier than...erm, picking up a book. Better still, all COOL-ER owners receive a 25% lifetime discount at Coolerbooks.com, home to over 750,000 titles, 500,000 of which are completely free. You're spoilt for choice: thrillers, chick lit, biographies, children's books, languages, best sellers - we were even gripped by a guide to used Fiat Bravas, which is hardly surprising because we still haven't got over the novelty of reading books digitally. Bulky tomes? How terribly last century.

List of chapters

Use it for mp3s or Sudoku!

The COOL-ER's internal battery charges in around three hours and lasts for 8000 page turns (the equivalent of reading War and Peace five times). And should you fall asleep (which you undoubtedly will if you're reading War and Peace five times) it automatically switches off after 15 minutes.

Available in all the colours of the rainbow

Speaking of turning pages, the COOL-ER's iPod-style scroll wheel acts as a menu selector and page turner. It also lets you select from six font sizes and toggle between landscape and portrait viewing. The only thing it won't do is make some fresh faced Z-listers godawful autobiography remotely entertaining.

Expandable Memory

Expandable memory

It’s not all about the written word though, because this unputdownable little gadget also plays MP3s, so you can listen as you read. Hmmm... Dostoyevsky and Lady Gaga. Indeed it's a proper format muncher and is compatible with several file types including PDF, EPUB, FB2, RTF, TXT, HTML, PRC and JPG. It's even multi-lingual and can be used in eight different languages. Wunderbar!

Available in eight snazzy colours, the COOL-ER's greatest feature is quite possibly its sleek and discreet casing, because anything that allows you to read an ex Page 3 girl's memoirs without attracting derisive looks is a great buy in our book. Eyes down, this is going to be a best-seller!

Well I am tempted to buy a Cool-er, but alarm bells started ringing when I went to their e-book website and typed in the name of a very well known author...Stephen King...Who has written around 80 novels. The website only has 9 of them....
Bobby Hall, Co.Durham - 4th February 2010
