Looking to get the best ebook reader for your Mom for Mothers Day this year? There are a few things you will want to take into consideration before purchasing one. You might automatically assume that she would want the new Nook Color from Barnes and Noble, but she may need a different one based on her reading preferences.
There are currently three leading ebook readers on the market right now. They are the Kindle from Amazon, the Nook from Barnes and Noble, and the Reader from Sony. Each one has a whole host of features to make it stand out from the rest – but each one of these devices have several models with differing features.
It can be tough to figure out which one will be the best one for your Mom. Of course, you could just ask her which one she would prefer, but she may not really know the differences. Maybe you want to surprise her. If so, you can’t really ask her.
If she isn’t really into high tech stuff, you are going to want to buy the most user friendly device you can. For that, I would probably say the Kindle is your best bet. There are even a lot of free ebooks in the Kindle store. However, if she likes to use the library to check books out so that she doesn’t have to buy them, you may want to reconsider and buy the Sony Reader. It has the easiest to use interface when accessing the Overdrive library system.
If she likes the high tech stuff, and would possibly like the freedom that a tablet offers, you will want to consider the Barnes and Noble Nook Color. It has just garnered the capability to port the Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb. This means that in the near future it could be capable of acting like an iPad.
Regardless of which e-reader you eventually buy for your Mom, she will love her new ability to bring a stack of books with her no matter where she goes – on vacation, doctors appointments, book clubs, or to bed!
