My brother convinced me to buy an ereader, so after some research I have to decide beetwen this two. Help me? I am used to reading physical books so I need a device where the display will be very similar to paper.

What I care about:
-good display and lightning. I want the overall look to be as similar to a real book as possible. I have never read a book on a screen before.
-good battery life is great
-good screen protection is also pretty good, I don't want to scratch it.

What I don't care about is speed of the device. Also I'm not sure I care about the android? I mean all I want is to read books. I don't think I would really be installing any android apps or anything like that at all.

Kobo Klara is 40€ cheaper for me. After I've done some reading online I have some seconds thoughts because a lot of people say they have some display (lightning) issues. Would it be safer for me to go for the Poke 3?

My Clara HD has even lighting so I don't think that is a worry.

Frankly I no longer even know whether my Libra has an even frontlight or not. After reading on it for more than a year (alternating with the Oasis and sometimes the Nook) I've gotten so used to it that I don't notice any imperfections. I seem to remember dimly its frontlight looked a bit uneven when I got it, but if anyone asked me now, I'd look totally blank. Frontlight? Er... no idea, I'm afraid...
