eReaders are a great Holiday Gift idea!

The holiday shopping season is upon us. It seems like we just finished getting ready for Christmas 2010 and here we are again with the latest holiday season ready to spring. Stores are already selling holiday decorations and counting down the days until Christmas, less than two months away.

If you are like me it's time to start getting your Christmas gifts purchased so you can sit back and enjoy the rest of your holiday. One of the top gifts this holiday season will be a new eReader. If you aren't sure what to get someone on your shopping list that enjoys reading and surfing the web some of the latest eReaders will do both.

You need to be sure and order the highly anticipated models like the Kindle Fire early because odds are there will be a shortage. Read on for my list of the top five eReaders for the Christmas season 2011. Any of these readers will be a great choice of people on your shopping list, or even as a holiday treat for yourself!

1. Kindle Fire - This is hands down my pick for the most popular and best eReader of the year. The Kindle Fire hasn't shipped yet and this is likely to be one of the most difficult to find gadgets around this season. You can pre-order the Fire right now for $199, though you might not get the tablet before Christmas at this point. The Fire will connect to the Amazon digital bookstore to buy books and it is a fully fledged 7-inch Android tablet supporting apps, gaming, and more. It has a dual-core processor and promises a lot more than reading alone.

2. Kindle Touch - If the Kindle Fire is too much for your budget and you want to find a tablet that will be available in more quality the Kindle Touch is worth a look. This black and white touchscreen device can show graphics from the books and more. It will ship later this month and you can pre-order it for $99 with ads. If you or the person you give it too doesn't like the ads, they can be removed for an additional fee. The ad-free version is $139.

3. iPad 2 - I can guarantee you that if you put the iPad 2 in any form under the tree this year you will make someone very happy. This is hands down the best tablet on the market and will connect to the Apple digital bookstore. I have used that digital bookstore extensively and it has a huge amount of different books for you to choose from. The iPad 2 will also allow you to download game apps and a lot more as well as surf the web and check email. This is a fantastic gift even though it's not cheap at about $500 for the base version.

4. Nook Color - The Nook Color is a very nice eReader that connects to the Barnes & Noble digital bookstore. This bookstore has plenty of titles to choose from. The Nook Color has a nice 7-inch color touchscreen and you can use the tablet to surf the web, play games, and listen to music as well. The Color has integrated WiFi and the tablet runs Android making it a very hackable little device.

5. Kindle - This is the 6-inch black and white eReader that started the eReader market back up. This is one of the most basic eReaders on the market, but it is also one of the cheapest quality eReaders. You have to be wary of buying off brand readers that might sell for less than the $79 ad-supported price of the Kindle. The ads are removable for a fee and this eReader has access to the packed Amazon digital bookstore. This eReader has WiFi integrated and you can use it to borrow books from a public library that supports that.
