A Kindle For Mothers Day [Mothers Day Gifts]

A Kindle For Mothers Day

Here’s an idea — get mom a Kindle for Mothers Day.

Why a Kindle? Well, despite the fact that the iPad got all the media attention, the device is not for everyone. The Kindle is much more like a book. The screen has no illumination, and before you say “but that’s a bad thing”, remember what else has no illumination — paper. The reading experience is much closer to the way us old folks have been reading for years, despite the iPad’s nifty page turning animation.

Also, if you’ve waited this long to get your mom or the mother of your children a gift, Amazon is offering free overnight shipping for Mothers Day. So it will actually get there in time. Something to think about.
