Turning your tablet into an e-reader is easy as one-two-three! 1) Choose your favorite app for reading e-books or e-magazines. 2) Select the right accessories for your tablet to make handsfree reading comfy and convenient. 3) Find the right spot – a coffee shop, your living room, or perhaps the beach.
Voila! Now you can e-read away!
Need some help with Step #2? Not a problem. Read on to learn about some great tablet accessories that can assist you on your e-reading journey.
ZAGG Detachable Keyboard Folio 2.0 for iPad Air 2
This keyboard folio can meet just about any of your e-reading and viewing needs, as it offers Video, Case and Book Mode. In Case Mode it protects your tablet from bumps and scratches, in Book Mode the keyboard and tablet are protected while you read, and in Video Mode, you can set your iPad up at the perfect viewing angle to watch your favorite shows or movies from a comfortable position. Plus it can convert into a keyboard should you need to shoot off a quick message while you're mid-book.
The hinge on the Detachable Keyboard Folio 2.0 offers 135-degrees of viewing angles, the same range you typically see from a laptop. And the battery can last up to two years in between charges, so if you're a frequent reader, you won't have to stop to charge before each e-reading session.*
Bonus feature: Reading on a red-eye flight or in bed after the rest of your family has turned off the lights? No problem – the keyboard features backlit keys so you can still see what you're doing even in low-light situations.
The Speck StyleFolio is a 2-in-1 cover and stand that fits snugly around your device and includes a built-in, adjustable stand. So you can choose the best angle for reading. If you prefer to read sitting upright in a chair or are more in the mood for lounging with the seat reclined, the StyleFolio can accommodate.
Bonus features: The faux leather cover looks great and the locking clasp means your device will be kept secure when on-the-go.
Tempered Glass Screen Protector
Made of 100% tempered glass, this screen protector will give you stronger protection than the standard, plastic screen protectors.
The special coating and high-grade glass hardness of the Tempered Glass Screen Protector help to prevent most scratches, smudges and fingerprints. Restore your screen to sparkling clarity with just a wipe, so a smudgey screen won't be an issue when you're enjoying the newest bestseller or a classic you've always meant to read.
And the shatter-proof film means that damage to the screen will be kept to a minimum should disaster strike and your phone is dropped.
Bonus feature: It's easy to apply! Once you release the glass, the silicone adhesive does all the work. The Tempered Glass Screen Protector will lie flat for pristine adhesion.

*Regular use of one hour per day. Using the backlit feature will impact battery life and may require more frequent charging.
