WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- Electronic devices and gadgets are on the top of lots of holiday wish lists this season.

e-Readers are definitely a hot gift, and there are plenty of them to choose from.

Consumer Reports tested a couple of popular models to see how fast each reader turned a page and performed in different lighting.

"While there are other manufacturers, your choice probably boils down to a Nook or a Kindle.  Those are the brands with the best performance, price and features," says Paul Reynolds.

The $120 Barnes and Noble Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight came out on top.  The page turns are quick, and it has crisp, readable type as well as a built-in light. 

Or for much less, Consumer Reports says consider the $70 Kindle with special offers from Amazon.  It also rated excellent for readability.  However, the page turns are not quite as fast.
