Kindle Paperwhite 3G (2012). 4.9 5 42 44
Excellent Upgraded my older kindle, very pleased with the newer model. 19 August 2014
Love It My trusty first Kindle died and I felt bereft without it even though I could still read from my I pad. I found it difficult to read out side as the screen would be black. I heard that the Kindle Paperwhite was excellent to read both in sunlight and at night. I was worried that after the simple switch page turner I would have to physically swipe the screen but I need not have worried it is just a slight touch of the side of the screen which does not stop your flow of reading at all. 19 August 2014
paperwhite A small compact reader. A lot lighter than my kindle so easy to hold. Will be using this for my holidays and hopefully it will liveup to its name. 19 August 2014
Love it I previously had the Kindle touch but no light behind. I have upgraded to this bargain. Love it, love it, love it. Great ink, just like a book. No need for the mini lamp I used to have to attach to it to read in bed when the bedroom light was off. Highly recommend. 12 August 2014
I Just Love My Kindle Paperwhite I had a basic Kindle which was great but upgraded to the paperwhite for the backlight. I absolutely love it and can now read anywhere. Having the 3G option too is more useful than I thought, so I can download books even without a WiFi connection. The touch screen is also a bonus for ease of page turning. In short I wouldn't be without mine now and would recommend that everyone buys a Kindle Paperwhite. 12 August 2014
