Since your ma likely knows nothing of ePub files and cares even less, but will be familiar with Amazon and probably have an account, the Kindle has to be the best e-book reader to buy her. It's also one of the cheapest, and sports the clearest E Ink screen you can get right now.

Whether she takes it on her daily commute to work, uses it to read in the garden, or just wants a more convenient way of taking lots to read on holiday than a pile of paperbacks, she's going to love an e-book reader. And the Kindle is the best of the lot.
