This Father's Day, bring your dad into the 21st century by giving him an eReader loaded with a few of his favorite books. eReaders are taking over books the same way MP3 players took over music.

Although many novels have followed, the first book that had us sleeping with the lights on was Stephen King's 'Salem's Lot.

Yann Martel - Life of Pi: A Novel

In countless commutes on the train to and from the office, we've read countless books, magazines, stuff from work, and, when we forget reading material, all the ads and train information.
