Best Christmas Gift?
I don't read much, so I need your advice, please.
My wife loves reading and she finishes a book in less than a week.
We have a bookcase with many books, probably 100+ and she reads some of them again.
She always says that she enjoys the actual books rather than doing it digitally but I still want to get her a device to be able to read digitally and buy all the books she wants. I will buy her a voucher with it as well so that she can buy some books to get started with.
What device would you recommend? Kindle or iPad or? I don't know the Kindle at all but the iPad seems like a good choice since it's an iPad and the iBooks app should provide all the needed material as well?
Any advice and input is greatly appreciated.And so I got lost in code...completely asphyxiated by it...

You can buy books through the Kobo store, or from other book stores, but there are also sites which offer out-of-copyright books free of charge. For example http://www.feedbooks.com/ , http://manybooks.net/ and the amazing Project Gutenberg - http://www.gutenberg.org/catalog/ . The first two sites are probably easier to navigate, but Project Gutenberg is the largest (and, I think, often the basis for books offered from other sites, too). You can, of course, get free downloads in formats for Kindle and other devices, too.Don't serve your porridge and then go out for a walk.
