Kindle Paperwhite

This product was recommended by Ian Sells from Rebate Key

I recently bought my techie grandpa a Kindle and he loves it. While he can navigate through smartphones with no problem, he doesn’t like the glare, constant buzzing and beeping, and overly busy screens. Moreover, older adults like my gramps love reading magazines and newspapers. Kindle allows you to subscribe to major US newspapers delivered to the device regularly at 6am. He just loves it–especially since the display is perceived like paper, doesn’t have glare, and has an adjustable font size (which is very easy to do, too!).
