The speech therapist at the nursing home suggested that we get my father books on audio (he's pretty much lost the ability to read).

I am leaning towards a Kindle but only because of familiarity, so am open to any ideas.

The ideal device:

Needs to only allow for reading and playing audio books (too many features and he'll never deal with it).

Will allow me to manage it easily (remotely would be great, so that I could push new books to it from a service and just have the therapist or one of us make sure it his wifi for new books).

Have available for purchase "tough covers" like a child would use (unsteady hands)

*Preferrably* an audio port for headphones that's easy to use (or that I could rig the headphones to stay in), since dexterity is also gone

Any ideas, or is a Kindle my best option with subscription?
