22 Priceless E-Reader Photos That Will Make You Want to Go Read NOW

With summer finally here and lots of epic travel and relaxation plans on the horizon, it’s time to pull out those handsome e-readers. Even traditional paper book sticklers (like myself, I admit) can't deny the benefits of digital reading devices when it comes to being on the go. It’s much easier to bring along a slim electronic reader than to lug around a hefty stack of books in your carry-on, travel tote, or beach bag — and that's not even mentioning your suitcase for that lengthy, much-needed vacation. Major space-saver.

That’s why it comes as no surprise that in 2013, 40 percent of adults owned e-readers or tablets, according to USA Today. These stats also showed that almost half of individuals in the 18-to-39 age range owned devices. Equally unsurprising was that digital reading devices were even more popular among college graduates: 60 percent of college degree-holders owned one. And those using e-readers deserve even more props because, according to the poll, 35 percent of 'em owners claimed they were reading more books since they’d acquired their digital friends. It's clear that e-reading continues to be on the rise, a trend further evidenced in a January 2014 study conducted by the Princeton Survey Research Associates.

With so many digital readers out there, it’s about time we showed ‘em some love. So, for all you e-reader groupies who've been feeling a bit neglected or left out in my recent book porn post, this lovely image collection is for you — and for the print copy romantics among us, maybe these will remind you that e-books aren't the enemy.
