Written on 05/04/2010 by Andrew | 0 comments

Need a great gift for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day? Look no further—the [amazon_link id=”B0015T963C” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Amazon Kindle[/amazon_link] is the perfect present for mom or dad. This sleek device has been redesigned and is now thinner than a pencil, much faster, and the battery lasts a lot longer.

UPDATE 11/21/11: Amazon has released new Kindles. Check out our new guide here.

The Amazon Kindle 2 has an E-Ink display which means that the device uses no power to keep the screen on. The E-Ink screen will not only give you days of battery life but the screen is easy to read indoors or outdoors in full daylight. The screen does not have a backlight and is matted, which means there is no reflection. The Kindle 2 has 2GB of internal memory that will hold over 1500 books, and not only can you read the Kindle, but it can read to you. The Kindle 2 features a text-to-speech function that will read aloud—perfect for those long car rides where you do not want to stare at a screen for a long period of time.

The Kindle 2 also features a full QWERTY keyboard that makes searching the bookstore and internet easy. When you want to purchase a book, simply press the “buy” button and the book automatically downloads in less than a minute. It certainly beats a trip to the book store!
