My mother in law would not be happy that I am telling people she is elderly, but here goes!
MIL is a very active 85 year old that loves to read and leads a well attended book club group. Unfortunately, she fell a few days ago and not only broke a hip, she shattered her arm. She is in a cast from her shoulder to her fingers. The recovery from the hip along would have gone ok, but without being able to put any weight on her arm, we are expecting a longer time for recovery.
I thought, and the other siblings agreed, that getting her a e reader might be a big help to her. She knows how to use the computer, so I can not imagine she will have a problem with this. I do think she will not like being able to hold an actual book, but being one handed for a while makes that a bit difficult.
She doesn't have a vision problem, but I was wondering how others find the small screen. Is the type set smaller than a regular book? I figured we would get the Kindle unless someone has a reason why another brand would be better. I have never even seen a Kindle or other reader in person, so I do not know how they handle.
