Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Review
It’s official, everyone in America is reading something these days. You must admit, although social media has its cons, it’s definitely getting more people connected. Statuses, updates, photo captions, memes and other great information (okay, I know it’s not all great) is out there for the world to see and it seems that it’s gotten a lot of our attention.
I for one have found myself connected to at least one or more stories during the day and now more than ever, I’m using my Kindle. I must be honest. I had no clue why I had to have this new e-reader, the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite, because the base model I owned seemed to be serving its purpose but hey, new has to mean better right? Not always but in this case, I’m convinced that I made the right decision.
I do realize that not everyone is a reader but if you’re a mom, entrepreneur, food lover or cook, reading likely consumes a great portion of your time. This is exactly why I find my Kindle Paperwhite so convenient. Needless to say, I am not one to splurge on the unknown and was immediately attracted to the convenient cost of my Kindle Paperwhite but this thing has a ton of features that I actually use!
For instance, I catch up on reading and research mostly at night and the lighting effect is perfect for nighttime reading. The number of books this tablet holds is outrageous, right there at the tip of your fingers and the display is in one word, “amazing”. I’m talking 6-inches of glare-free clarity in a touch-screen.
My first Kindle was the budget friendly base model Amazon Kindle E-reader and it was great, especially if you don’t need or prefer the built-in light, physical page turn buttons and 3G connectivity option that the Paperwhite version offers. In my opinion, the base model is great for an occasional reader or someone who wants to learn the basics and become comfortable with the E-reader concept but for clarity in print and not to mention the comfort in size, the Paperwhite is the way to go.
I probably should mention that prior to purchasing my Kindle Paperwhite, I had a brief encounter with the Barnes & Noble Nook GlowLight Plus, but wasn’t pleased with its lag in performance. You know, hurry up and turn the page type of lagging? I quickly returned it and found that the Kindle Paperwhite is more than sufficient and not to mention, a few bucks cheaper than what I’d paid for the Nook.
