Kindle Oasis

There are much cheaper Kindles to buy. But there are two reasons your mom deserves the best e-reader ever made: She's your mom, and when you consider that it comes with a combination screen cover and backup battery, the Oasis is priced exactly right. The e-reader has Amazon's sharpest, most paper-like e-ink display, and a flawless, thoughtful design. Its weight pulls slightly to one side, making it more comfortable for one-handed reading than completely balanced devices. And its leather cover — which snaps on and off with secure, but easily disengaged magnets — extends the reader's weeks of battery life to months. It's the best-designed product that Amazon has ever made, and the best choice for anyone who devours e-books like Mom. [Starts at $290; amazon.com]
