I'm not an apple or tablet fan (like...at all! :biggrin: ) but my mom who is in her mid 60's absolutely adores her i-pad! She reads a lot of books and I guess she can borrow them digitally from their local library? :200:

I like that idea as well. I only discovered a couple months ago that I can do that on my phone. Just downloaded the ap from the library and I was good to go.

Amazon Fire tablets are much cheaper than iPads as well as Samsungs and work very well.

I think brand new Fire 10s are $200 and they go on sale all on the time. I got a Fire 8 a couple years ago for I believe $70.
