IMO for an e-reader the Kindle has always got to be the best bet, ok they may slightly dearer but you know they (Amazon) will always have support unlike Barnes and Noble or others that could go bust or discontinue at any time.
Thank you very much z3r010

Once the card expires, you would have to keep track of its number to access your books.

Although I personally do not like the Kindle e-readers and it's highly unlikely I will ever own one, it is still the most popular brand, with the Paperwhite currently in the lead. Amazon's Kindle bookstore is the largest one readily available. Despite my dislike of Kindles and Amazon's own little walled garden, they are still what I recommend to most people because of the store's wide selection of books and the Kindles' ease of use. Kindle e-book readers and e-books are pretty much plug and play when used together. Plus, there are apps that will allow one to read their Kindle books on their PCs, android devices (phones and tablets), and iOS devices (iPhones, iPads, and Macs).
Thank you Lady Fitzgerald

The two last posts changes things quite a lot ! - Thank you.

Kindle app for Android, Google Play Books, Press Reader, Aldiko E-book reader are few to name that are pre-installed on most Android phones these days.

I have a Note 2 and I use Google Play Books to read E-Books, it just serves the purpose without any hassle.

Hopefully the nook i bought for lois will last her a while,
i notice a lot of the reviews were for last year so im hoping any issues will have been sorted out.
i cant say much about whether B&N will be in business in the future but one can only hope.
thanks for the heads up about the expiring card numbers.
it seems that the kindle is the best avenue then.
sometimes you just have to go with the size of your wallet.
fingers crossed its not a duffer.

Hi Dinesh yes but I did want a separate device to use at work (when I'm sat in my office watching the ullage levels when a tanker delivers - can take ages )

The kindle apps all sync all devices so you can pick up your phone, kindle or tablet and still be at the same spot in the book.
