Hubby has always been a reader. He even used a magnifying glass to keep reading before his cataract surgery. After surger he could read easily again and did so for years. He still reads the newspaper, but doesn't get very far in any of the books he starts. Part of the problem is comprehension and I know the book format won't change that. But I'm wondering if being able to hold the device without losing his place with pages fluttering and being able to control the font size would be enough to let him enjoy books again.
If you have any experience with elderly loved ones who've tried these devices, I'd love to hear about it. Personally, I love books. I want them filling my bookcases and spilling off my night stand. I love holding them and turning pages. I love loaning them and giving them away and trading them in at a used book store. So I'm not too keen on electronic readers for myself, but I'm open to anything that might be pleasant for Hubby.
