- Amazon Kindle (from $69)
The Kindle from Amazon starts at $69. Personally it is a nice holiday gift with a more affordable price. Thanks to its lightweight, it is easy to slip to a pocket or a bag for long reading sessions. It uses eInk technology to delivery books that look almost like real paper, and it is great for reading outdoors. Kindle battery life is pegged at 1 month with WiFi turned off, so there's no need to charge it every night.
The Kindle holds over 1,000 books and can download more books over WiFi in under a minute. The Kindle offers access to a huge selection of books on the Amazon Kindle store and 180,000 books to borrow free with an Amazon Prime membership.
