So I need help with e-readers. I'm assuming there have been posts about them in the past, but this is specifically for a 59 year old woman (my aunt) who will not use it for anything except reading books. I want to buy her one for her birthday and I'm not sure which way to go. The 1st edition Nook is only $119. Is it really so different from the newer versions that my aunt would notice or care? What about the Kindle? It's apparently only $114 and I get 20% off a cover if I buy this week. Both have free shipping.

Please help me decide which one to get for my technologically challenged aunt? Thank you so much in advance :)

*Edit* I forgot to mention that my cousin (my aunt's son) is a B&N member so he gets special offers in the mail for discounts on ebooks and things. I'm not sure if that'll make a difference in which way to go.

*Edit again* My stepmother has a Nook and she told me she can share books with other Nooks. Can Kindles and Nooks share books? Like, if I got my aunt the Kindle, would she be able to share with my stepmother?
