Hope this is the right place for this post. My dad has trouble reading due to his eyes and so tends to sit for hours on end in front of the TV watching the news. I don't think it's healthy for his mind or body so I'm getting him a device he can use for e-books with oversize type. Hopefully I can persuade him to use it with the right books. I have an iPad 3 and love the convenience. I have a few ebooks on it but they are reference manuals, computer and ecommerce books. I use them for how-to info and not for extended reading for fun so I don't really know how iPad compares to Kindle for this purpose. One negative I have with iPad is that Kindle (I don't use one) can have larger screen size. Also probably simpler for an older guy. Would really appreciate it if anyone who knows both would share experiences. Thanks in advance for any insights.
