Kindle paperweight 3G Easy to use, very lightweight and a much easier & cheaper way to download books. Very impressed overall. 17 September 2014
Easier to read This is my 2nd kindle. Loved the first one but felt I needed the paper white as it's easier to read. Can also read in bed without putting the light on, disturbing the other arf 16 September 2014
Love my new toy Really pleased with the ease of use. Never thought I would be carrying a library round with me. Perfect clarity in any light. Am buying one for my other half. 11 September 2014
Pleased Overall Very light to hold and can read in all conditions. Not sure of the battery life because my sony e-reader hardly ever needed charging. It could be because of the light in the kindle?? 09 September 2014
Particularly good for those without internet. Bought this for my mother who has really taken to e-reading on another manufacturers e-reader. However not having the internet - or computer knowledge limited her ability to download more books herself needs the assistance of my sister or myself. The 3G on this allows her to download what books when she likes from the vast Kindle resources and the process is so easy. Really good and successful present for her 87th birthday. 03 September 2014
