2. Barnes & Nobles Nook Simple Touch with Glow Light
This is the gift to order now. Barnes and Noble has already started shipping pre-orders of its new e-reader with Glow Light and warns that “due to very strong pre-order demand, the company recommends that customers who wish to gift the device for Mother’s Day pre-order now, as orders will be fulfilled on a first-come, first-serve basis.” Writes David Pogue in a glowing NYT review, “The reality lives up to the theory in every way. The GlowLight Nook offers glorious, clear, peaceful darkened-room reading.... The bottom line: There's no better E Ink model than this new glowing Nook. For the first time in e-reader history, you can have spectacular, crisp pages to read in any light, from beach sunshine to sleeping-spouse darkness.” If Pogue’s review is any indication, plenty of mothers should see this glowing from their breakfast trays.
