If Dad's late to the e-reader bandwagon, don't fret good things come to those who wait. Case in point: Barnes & Noble's latest addition to the Nook family. At $139, not only is it priced competitively with Amazon's wi-fi-only Kindle, but, weighing in at a feathery 7.5 oz. (213 g), it's also smaller and lighter and has a 6-in. (15 cm) touchscreen which means Dad's crumbs won't find their way into any button crevices.
But the thing he's sure to love the most? A whole two months of battery life between recharges. And the thing you're sure to love the most? If Dad runs into trouble, he can get help at any of Barnes & Noble's retail stores. That means no over-the-phone troubleshooting for you.
