Kindle e-reader or fire ?

Hi 
This my first time here so hello to everyone
I have had my kindle for a while now so this might seem a bit of a daft question.
I am about to buy my wife a  kindle and I'm not sure which one to get.
She loves reading but likes to surf the net so I'm trying to weigh up my options.
The e-reader one or the kindle fire...I know with fire you can access 
the internet but I'm not sure if she would use it for that.
Any thoughts welcome 
Derek

RE: Kindle e-reader or fire ?

It all depends on what you want it for. I had a keyboard kindle which is now ancient but still works fine. I got a Nexus and downloaded the Kindle app. It was much better for taking notes. After four years I moved on to a Fire. I love it because I can make notes, Google things, check email, all from this device.

Me too - I've used my Kindle fire a lot more than I expected, having first bought it as a lightweight way of writing a live travel blog. I even bought a second, cheaper one last year to take into hospital with me but didn't have any passwords saved on it but downloaded music, books and a couple of games beforehand. I still have a Kindle ereader as well as it's thin enough to squeeze into a small handbag for going into town on the bus.
