Registry Ideas - eReaders
Now here's a practical registry gift that couples can truly use time and again. Whether you're a bookworm or prefer magazines and newspapers, eReaders provide you with instant access to thousands of selections. The best part is that the latest devices are only about eight ounces, can last up to two months on a single charge, and even feature built-in Wi-Fi. No matter if you're at home on the couch, lounging at the beach, or on a plane across the Atlantic, you can access your favorite books and magazines wherever and whenever without any hassle.
The Amazon Kindle and Barnes and Noble's Nook lead the pack when it comes to most coveted eReaders. At only 8.5 ounces, the Kindle Wi-Fi can download up to 3,500 books, has a no-glare guarantee (perfect for those bright beach days), features a 6-inch reading size area, and more than 950,000 books available. Meanwhile, the Nook gives you access to more than two million books and is even lighter than the Kindle. Or better yet, consider a tablet with the iPad2. The latest model -- which features two cameras, 10-hour battery life, and an overall lighter and skinnier design -- is quite ideal for browsing the web, reading books, watching movies, or checking email.
