Bookworms will love the gift of the written word. So this holiday season, give them a lightweight library in the form of an eReader. E ink is easy on the eyes and and their slim design is easy on your loved one’s back. Whether she’s reading on the subway or curled up in bed, an eReader is sure to please. Plus, thanks to recent price drops, you’ll save some dough, too.
The device that launched an eReader explosion gets better in this refresh, with a design that’s 30 percent lighter and Whispersync technology for remembering where you left off in a book and syncing information across your devices. The Kindle still has the same 6-inch, 800 x 600-pixel display, and you’ll be able to store as many as 1,400 books on board.
Another new feature sweetens the deal: You can borrow Kindle books from your public library via Wi-Fi or USB. The new Kindle offers a lot for a very reasonable price.
