Yep… so I’ve been talking about getting myself a Kindle Paperwhite. I LOVE my iPad, don’t get me wrong, but it does have a *few* drawbacks. Like when I’m reading outside, or in the car… and it’s sunny? Or too bright out? Well… I can barely see the screen. It’s just… uncomfortable reading and sometimes I just LOVE to read outside. On the beach, on a perfect spring day… or even next to a bright window.
That, and the fact that the iPad is a bit large and heavy, so carrying it around in one of *my purses* which tend to be small, doesn’t work well. And for the fact that if I wanna FaceTime with my mom in Canada for a few hours, I have to do it on a laptop, so I can have my iPad free, in case I feel like reading while she does her thing on the other end. That’s fine and all, but every time I want to move to a different area, I have to unhook the laptop, the mouse, and anything else plugged into it to carry it around. I’d rather just have HER on my iPad, and my books on an actual Kindle, and then we can “hang out” together anywhere I feel like being, and I can still read.
Rebecca: I totally think you should grab that paperwhite, Maryse…I don’t think you will regret it. I read on it exclusively now- it is so much better than reading on a tablet. The light makes it the most perfect device…ever. I go nowhere without mine. 🙂
MichelleS: The paperwhite is my 5th Kindle, literally…. and it’s the one I use exclusively now. Easy to use. Manage collections. Read in bed. Just love it. it is FAR superior to the other kindles.
Maryse: Thank you guys!!! I’m getting one.
Shelly: I’ve been thinking about getting a Paperwhite also. I love my Fire HD, but it is harder to read with it outside & I’ve heard the Paperwhite is awesome for that. 🙂
Michelle F: Yes, Maryse, you should grab that Kindle Paperwhite while it’s on sale! I do alot of camping and read outside alot and the Paperwhite is perfect. Took it to Mexico for two weeks on vacation and read out on the beach for hours every day in the full sun. No glare, no tilting it to avoid reflection. It’s great! I turn it to airplane mode when I’m away from home and don’t need the wi-fi so my battery lasts for days and days without recharging.
Yep! How can I resist? So… tell me why YOU would also need a Paperwhite and one lucky commenter here will get one, too!
