Slug Gift Guide: Gentle Reader

Granny likes to listen to books. That means gramps still likes to read them. (He's stubborn like that.) The Slug recommends you help grandpa get with the times by giving him a Sony Reader. At that Q&A we attended earlier this week, Sony Electronics president Stan Glasgow said Readers, which can hold up to 100 books each, were flying off shelves. The Slug tested it out and we can see why. It's light. It's easy to read. And it sorta looks like a book. But if your pa-pa doesn't like to read, just get him the fishy john instead.
