You can save £200 pounds and buy an Amazon Fire Tablet, which will let you read and listen to books and view Videos, however it wont let you do Facetime, but you can use Teams or Whatsapp to do video calls.
Not sure how old your Fire tablet is @LisaDavis5?
My husband bought one 2 months ago and he is amazed at it.
Prior to this he had a very expensive Sony Tablet which was great at first but as it got old it was slow and glitchy.
Bottom line though, it's entirely up to you and your bank balance. 😉
