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 be arrogant. Be kind to a koala that thinks it's a bear.
