Re: kindle or android tablet, for mom?

I have a Kindle Fire. (Have had it for over two years, not the new HD one.)
Kindle IS android!

If your mom is not technologically inclined, I would stay away from any of that stuff.....

Yes it is, but very AMAZON centric limited compared to your generic Android tablet like ASUS, Sammy and Toshiba.

Whatever you use, see if you can back up the books. Amazon has been known to delete books.

I forget if it was B&N or Amazon, but they started purging books from users who didn't have a current credit card.

It was B&N -

I get books from elsewhere on an Android tablet. Back them up on a computer. Anyone tries to delete, I still have book. I won't use either B&N, Amazon or Google books.
