Amazon Kindle 3G
If your mom is an avid reader, the Amazon Kindle 3G can breathe fresh life into her dusty paper-based reading world. While she may like the feeling of holding a book and turning pages, the Kindle offers more. This e-reader can hold it all, including romance, mystery, non-fiction books, magazines and newspapers, which can all be easily downloaded.
The Kindle is sleek and extremely lightweight, weighing less than 6 ounces, so mom can easily carry all her reading materials without the back and shoulder pains that come from lugging bulky books. It will also allow her to read in the sun without any glare, and brightness controls make certain it's easy on her eyes when indoors.
