Mother's Day gifts: 4 great e-readers for Mom

We know she tells you that she doesn’t need anything, that she already has everything she wants, but what your mom really wants this Mother’s Day is a shiny new e-reader. It’s the perfect tool to accompany her everywhere – on her commute to work, as she waits in the car for the kids, or simply in bed at night – a portable library to tantalize her imagination wherever she goes. And with so many new models and affordable options on the market today, now is the time to buy. Here are four good options to consider.

1. Apple’s iPad and iPad2

With a new $399 price point, Apple’s iPad2 is getting fresh attention from all quarters (Note: In some cases, the $399 WiFi iPads have sold out. If you’re looking for a lower price point, check out certified refurbished iPads on Apple’s website.) In a mostly positive review, Macword writes “..the iPad 2 is a triumph, an iPad that’s even more iPad than the original. And the original one was really good. The first iPad was a bolt from the blue, a device that defined an entire category, and a tough act to follow. The iPad 2 follows it with aplomb.”
