My husband bought us a kindle for our anniversary, and it is FAB. For avid readers like me this is a God send especially through hand flare ups.
They are light (you don't drop them and loose your page!).
You have light touch buttons on the left and right, so if your left hand is bad use your right hand buttons etc..You can have a pillow, cushion resting and prop the kindle onto it. You don't have to hold it in place even!
Ours was bought through Amazon- it came preprogrammed, so you can buy books immediately. Ours is the more expensive model, this means that downloading is wireless and no computer is required.
The downside- the first couple of months can be expensive, buying all those fab books! Watch out for free downloads, more than any other ereader. Talking of which I have one, but can't work out how to get the books off the computer onto the ereader. Thankyou Kindle!!
Ps. I have to try and brush my dogs teeth now. Yuck!
