If you have a mother that loves to read, you might want to consider getting an ebook reader this Mother’s Day. Or would you rather live with the fact that your Mother is getting smacked by a hard back book in the nose when she falls asleep at night? Of course not. Of course not.
Ereaders are still very hot items, and will definitely be a hot gift this 2012 Mother’s Day. Which new ebook readers are the hottest thing? There have been some new developments. Take a look and choose which one is best for Mom this year.
The Kindle Fire
The Kindle Fire is the hottest new ebook tablet reader of the year by far. It combines ebook reading with tablet computing, giving the user the best of both worlds at a price that won’t break the bank. If you’ve a mother who wants to surf the web, play some games, and read all on one device, then the Fire is a great choice.
Of course, let’s face it, many mothers out there aren’t the most tech-savvy people. Perhaps they’ll get more use out of an E-Ink ebook reader.
The Kindle and Kindle Touch
This year Amazon released a new family of Kindles. The new base model Kindle for $79 is a simple substitution for paper book reading. It’s navigation is simple and the pricing is right for a cheap but very useful gift.
The Kindle Touch is Amazon’s E-Ink touch screen reader. It’s a little easier to navigate with a touch screen, comes with more memory, and more features.
The New Nook Simple Touch With “Glowlight”
The new Nook Glowlight version is a slightly more expensive version of the Nook Simple Touch, but it has a softly glowing back lit E-Ink screen to aid in reading at night. This is an innovation that has definitely perked up the ears of other competitors in the E-Ink ebook reader market. The reader can be read in bright sunlight with ease, just like other E-Ink models, but makes an exterior light unnecessary for night reading.
Other Readers Mom May Enjoy This Mother’s Day
The Nook Simple Touch is a hot E-Ink reader for the last couple years running. For a full color tablet reader from B and N, you may want to check out the Nook Color or the Nook Tablet. The difference being the Tablet is a more robust reader than the Color.
