My #1 top gift pick for Father's Day 2013 is the Kindle Fire HD! Right now Amazon has the 7" HD Display, Dolby Audio, Dual-Band Dual-Antenna Wi-Fi, 16GB with special features for $179.00 when you use code DADSFIRE.
We've done the iPad thing and I, hands down, would pick my Kindle Fire HD over it any day. I often have to wrestle it away from family members! I received my Kindle Fire HD as a Christmas gift with 32GB's. I have yet to fit the memory and I download A LOT of E-Books! I also recommend getting the 2-year Warranty for $49.99.

I'd also recommend an Amazon Prime membership. I shop Amazon for just about everything; bathroom tissue to coconut water, Prime is $79 a year and I get FREE shipping on over a million items sold by Amazon! If you give a Kindle to Dad, a prime membership also has a lending library! I love this feature because I can read a book and not have to take up storage space - if you give the 16GB I highly recommend this!
