Using an e-reader stylus

  fuggle 15:23 06 Dec 2012

I am looking for an e-reader. I am not interested in lots of features. I simply want to read books and look up words in the dictionary. Having played with some I find highlighting a word difficult (stubby fingers) and would welcome advice on the use of a stylus. Sony PRS-T2 comes with one but I am comparing that with the Kindle Paperwhite (which doesn't). I believe the two screens operate differently and may affect the use of a stylus. Sony has infra red sensors and the Kindle capacitive touch. Any advice welcomed.

You don't have to use a touch screen one.

how about a cheap kindle here uses the buttons to highlight a word.

Thanks Fruit Bat.. I have used the cheap Kindle but prefer to pin point a word quickly with a stylus than to navigate with the cursor.

And thanks Northumbria 61. I am checking out the capacitive stylus.

THE Wacom stylus here duo stylus is also a biro and the tip is smaller than most. It is a bit expensive but works well with kindle touch, my Samsung phone and even my Samsung 10.1 tablet that has the 'special' S pen.

All round good tool.

I have stubby fingers also but can generally navigate the kindle touch OK.

Just discovered the Touch does not need a special pen, it works with the plastic end of a biro ( got a protective screen on it). So maybe a touch and Biro is all you need!
