    I charge my kindle once every 8 weeks at around 30% from a full charge. I don’t like to keep it in airplane mode so if I turned that on i could probably get 10 weeks. Battery life is shockingly good!Touch screen: is fine… not great but that’s to be expected with an e-ink tablet. Highlighting can be awkward at times, but I just being nit picky.I’ve never needed the waterproof feature, but it’s nice to have it.The built in light is AMAZING! I schedule the warm light feature past 8pm, usually set to warmth 23. Brightness is usually set to 8 and it is perfect. I read this before bed every night and it helps me wind down, doesn’t strain my eyes, and is so convenient.The kindle is the perfect size and you can take it anywhere.I thought only 8GB of storage would be an issue, but was pleasantly surprised. I rarely have more than 15 books on it at once, and I’ve only used a tiny amount. You could easily store hundreds of books at once on this but since it downloads them so quickly and saves all of your notes and highlights, there’s no need. If you’re on a budget, 8GB is plenty, trust me.Notes and highlights are amazing… I like reading nonfiction and it is SO handy to sync with my goodreads account and have every highlight I’ve ever made in any book stored on there for me. I’m able to get the important things out of the books and just reread my highlights.I’ve only played an audiobook from my kindle once, but it worked great. All you need is a Bluetooth speaker, and it will automatically sync your progress for when you go back to visually reading.Lock Screen ads are not that bad, I don’t think it’s worth the $20 to remove. They never interrupt your story, they only show when you put the kindle to sleep and if you have a cover like I do you will barely notice they’re there.It is super comfortable to read in whatever position you find most comfortable. For example, I like reading in bed on my side. With a physical book this is awkward and uncomfortable but with a kindle it’s no problem. Everything is so customizable: I changed my font and text size to something that suits me better.Something about reading on a screen gets you hooked, only without the distractions. I don’t know how to explain it, but it keeps me hooked on my books.Also, being able to check my streak on my phone keeps me motivated.TLDR: I am reading wayyyy more with the kindle than I did with physical books, 10/10 would recommend.

    So I came into possession of this little guy due to a late night Amazon impulse buy a few days before leaving for vacation. I was going on a weeklong trip with my family and didn’t want to have to bring my ipad (what I usually use to read) or any actual books with me on the plane. Let me preface this by saying I am an avid reader, spending the majority of my free time reading…and have been for most of my life. My siblings lament to anyone listening about the horror of summer road trips, riding in the back of our family sedan, fighting for leg room because I always had at least 5-6 books at my feet to read during our travels. You should hear the way my sister grumbles at even the mere mention of a car ride with me (She horribly dramatic) but I digress. I also used to have a nook e-reader, an original model Kindle from way back in the day that no longer works, and have the kindle app on my ipad which I use to read most days. So I am familiar with e-reading. This kindle is quite possibly the best purchase I’ve ever made. It’s basically pocket sized so it was extremely portable. I brought it with me everywhere; On the plane, in the car, in my bag to restaurants…I even managed to fit it in a particularly spacious pocket of an oversized jean jacket I wore on cooler nights. It’s amazing. It was comfortable enough to hold in one hand, or two, depending on what I preferred at the time. The various light options on the kindle, including the warm light feature makes it easy to read regardless of where I was and what kind of lighting is available, without eye strain. I shared a room with family for a couple of nights and the dark mode feature barely emits light past my immediate person, so I was able to read into the wee hours of the morning if I wanted to without disturbing my family sleeping in the same room, or sacrificing my precious reading time. ( I get particularly sassy if I’m interrupted in the middle of a discovering a plot twist in a juicy novel, i’m just saying). You are able to customize lots of the settings, such as the fonts, size, spacing and layout, so that the books look however you want them to while reading. (I definitely used that feature to make the font smaller and more compact while I read an embarrassingly cringleworthy, but suprisingly emotional and fantastic, harlequin romance novel while on the plane. It’s nobody’s business why I was practically sobbing into my complimentary pretzels after the protagonists romantic interest declared his love to her for the first time, thank you very much) I also may, or may not have had a TINY accident in which I spilled my entire 32oz water bottle full of water all over my pants and my kindle. After squealing in alarm at how cold the water was, I was able to get my bearings, wiped the water off the kindle, changed my pants and continued reading. I have noted no damage whatsoever to my kindle and that was at the beginning of my trip well over a week ago now. After reading every day for at least 4-6 hours per day/night for 7 days straight I had 57% battery left over. I think the battery is supposed to last for 2 weeks maybe? IDK. Basically it lasted a long time, long enough for me to be impressed. Also, I downloaded at least 15 new books on there, not to mention the impressive collection of books I already owned and was able to sync to the device, and I still have over 4GB of space available to use. I have since named the kindle Kurt, as I feel emotionally connected to the device after our adventures together these past weeks. If you are a super bookworm like me, or are just trying to finish a whole book for the first time, I highly recommend this device for purchase. I think it was worth the money a thousand times over. And if after reading this you do decide to purchase it, I hope you love it just as much as I do.

    All the hype is real — a Kindle is a great way to travel light with a ton of books at your disposal. The screen is easy to read/has good light and the pages on screen do look more like pages versus a computer screen. It’s relatively easy to set up and to get used to the controls and options. For consideration, the buttons are not as visible or intuitive — it does take a while to get used to which way to swipe or touch to get access to settings versus turn a page versus go to the home screen. The battery does last a good amount of time. My one gripe — I wish that borrowing books from the library didn’t require you to go through Amazon….buying books I get, but borrowing from a library seems odd. Anyway, overall, completely worth it for the ease of reading on the go. Easy to hold, slim, easily fits in most bags and worth it for the price if you intend to use it.

    I’m an avid reader & always wanted a reader for all my books – just my books. Bought this for my introduction into Kindles as I never had one before and I decided why not try it out. Can’t say it was a bad one – actually it was a very good one. Took the Paperwhite Kindle 6.8″ locked ad 16gb for my first and I appreciate it. Got me the Kindle + Kindle unlimited subscribtion.What I like about the Kindle:This reader is wonderful and saves my eyes from the glare of the phone or tablet I once used. Apart from the glare free screen, I like that I can be on a bus reading, with the sunlight pouring through, or sitting outside in the bight environment of day light and I have no problems reading the screen. At night, I can set the screen and read comfortable as well. Yes, its easy on the eyes. The ads run when the screen is closed and isn’t a bother while on & reading. The kindle goes on for days without having to charge. YES! I had to test out that particular line “up to 10 weeks of battery life”. 10 weeks is a stretch if you’re a reader reading daily – If you’re a reader who reads off and on or every two days or so, it could probably last up to 10 weeks. But as long as you’re a frequent user reading – it can last up to about 10 days (almost or 2 weeks). The battery life is great! I also decided to try the waterproof theory but not too much (lol) I was reading one day while at a funeral, and rain decided to pour down a bit. I stood there under the light drizzle but not the pouring rain – so, i’ll say the screen is waterproof, not sure about the emersion theory. Definitely good on storing books. Before I received my kindle, as an author new to the Bookstagram community, I found some good deals such as “Stuff Your Kindle Day” or other free books download and began downloading to my account. When received my E-reader, and got it set up, had about almost 3000 books. So, the storage is pretty okay. I don’t have Audible nor a subscription for audio books – so, I can’t exactly say that the audio hands free is a go. I have to give this a try as I have a audio book trial to listen to and will give an update on this later.Perspective:The device is great, easy to use, great for traveling with. It’s thin, lightweight and battery life last long (not the whole 10 weeks) like I explained above (rolls eyes). Definitely can use at the beach, river, waterfalls, springs (bodies of water) as long as you’re careful not to lose it (lol). Shades of pages can be changed, or you can schedule the light changes, Can adjust the size of the font you wish to use to read. The screen is black and white – as in the colored cover of books won’t be seen. But I’m good with that. This is only for Amazon Kindle reader – No other books apps can be used on the kindle. You can read, pdf files (don’t really like how some of these pdfs read on it & I more prefer the epubs), epubs. Haven’t bothered to try other files…I do know that on my app on my phone, png, jpeg would be seen. I think it’s good for the price I got it for.Recommend or Not?Why not? If you’re new to the books e-readers like me, I see nothing wrong in giving it a chance to see if you’re into having just a kindle or if you’d prefer a tablet e-reader where you can have the Kindle app and other ebook apps as well for your reading. (If you looking for a reader to host kobo, bookfunnel library, booksprout app, etc then buy a tablet this won’t do). If you have no problem with having a read that shows your book covers black & white, sure get it. There are other kindle that cost more with the colored cover display.Other than that, Yes I recommend it.

    My adventure with the 16GB Amazon Kindle Paperwhite has not just been enjoyable, but it has been an absolute revelation for my reading habits. I started this journey with a sense of curiosity and came out the other end with an indescribable sense of joy. The Kindle Paperwhite is no ordinary e-reader; it’s a library, a companion, and an enabler that stoked my passion for reading in ways that I hadn’t anticipated.Although it’s near-perfect in its execution, there are some aspects that could use minor tweaking. In the spirit of constructive criticism, I’ll share my comprehensive experience with this device, giving you an in-depth insight into its many facets. My review comprises of my commendations, but it also includes friendly suggestions for potential improvements.🖥️📚 A Larger, Pleasurable Display: Turning over a new leaf in e-reading: At first glance, the most noticeable upgrade in this device is the 6.8″ display. It’s significantly larger compared to previous iterations, a change that has had an immense impact on my reading experience. More words per page mean fewer page turns, a feature that has significantly enhanced the flow of my reading. It also provides a sense of continuity that’s often missing in e-readers. The sharp resolution, quite similar to printed text, strikes a beautiful balance between the tangible comfort of traditional books and the convenience of digital reading.💡🌙 Customizable Warm Light: A Harmony of Comfort and Adaptability: The adjustable warm light feature, in my opinion, is the unsung hero of the Kindle Paperwhite. It allows me to tailor the screen’s warmth, an incredible boon for long reading sessions. Whether it’s a sunny afternoon spent in the park or a quiet night before bedtime, the adjustable light adapts to my environment, reducing eye strain significantly. It’s small innovations like these that set the Kindle Paperwhite apart from its competitors.📚🎒 A Library in the Palm of your Hands: Bringing the World to You: Avid readers know the joy of being surrounded by books, and the 16GB storage capacity of the Kindle Paperwhite is a testament to that joy. It allows me to carry an eclectic mix of books without the associated weight or bulk, a feature that’s been a game-changer, especially during travel. On a whim, I can switch between genres, authors, and themes, making every reading session an exciting journey through the literary world.🕶️🖐️ A Sleek Look Combined with Comfortable Grip: Designed to Impress and Comfort: The elegant black design and the sleek aesthetic of the Kindle Paperwhite are visually pleasing. But what enhances the user experience is the rubberized back and the smooth bezel around the screen that ensures a comfortable grip. Long hours of reading no longer feel cumbersome, making the Kindle Paperwhite a true ally for book lovers.🔋⏱️ An Impressive Battery Life: The Power to Keep you Company: One of the Kindle Paperwhite’s most reliable features is its remarkable battery life. Lasting for weeks on a single charge, it proves to be a trusty companion for long commutes, travel, or power-reading sessions. I have often found myself lost in the world of books without worrying about the battery life, a freedom that very few e-readers offer.However, in the spirit of a balanced review, it’s essential to highlight an aspect that might require some acclimatization:⚖️🤔 Size and Weight Considerations: Slightly Bulkier, but for a Reason: The larger screen size has undoubtedly enhanced the reading experience. However, it also brings a slight increase in the overall size and weight of the device. For those, like me, who were used to the feather-light feel of earlier models, this change took some getting used to. It’s not a deal-breaker by any means, but something to be aware of.Considering all the factors, the Kindle Paperwhite 16GB more than earns its 5-star rating 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟. The slight increase in size and weight is but a small compromise when compared to the extensive list of advantages. The stunning display, adjustable warm light, ample storage, refined design, and impressive battery life easily outweigh this minor inconvenience.So, to all fellow book lovers and prospective e-reader explorers, I wholeheartedly recommend the Kindle Paperwhite. It promises a world of literary adventures and endless hours of pleasurable reading. And in the end, isn’t that what we, as readers, seek? The chance to lose ourselves in the world of words, one page at a time.I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude to you for taking the time to read this exhaustive review. I hope it proves useful in your decision-making process and brings you one step closer to finding your ideal reading companion. Here’s to a future filled with the joy of reading, one book at a time. Happy hunting, and even happier reading! 📚💫🌍

    I am someone who believes that there is something profound and special about a physical book. My favorite part about a book is its smell. It’s not wrong to describe the smell of walking into a Barnes & Noble as pure euphoria. New books smell like potential, beginnings, and the possibility of something grand. Old books smell like legends, ancient wisdom, or forgotten secrets. Books have a weight to them as well. It’s reassuring to know that this book you’re holding is real — it takes up physical space in the world and this makes it undeniable. It’s as if the power of the stories and ideas within are so strong that they have materialized into matter out of the aether. It’s hard for me to hold, say, a Bible without a sense of reverence and awe. Even today when I walk into a large library I can’t help but feel like I have walked into a holy place — a place of worship. Being surrounded by books has the same effect on me that a Xanex has on others. Books have an impact on me. I love them.This is why, when I started reading on a Kindle over a year ago, it felt like I was committing adultery. This nasty little plastic screen inspired none of the feelings that books gave me. It took the magic of books and sacrificed it on the altar of consumer electronics. Despite these feelings, I continued to use it.Now I have read a little over fifty books using my Kindle. I still believe that the Kindle kills the magic that physical books have, and it does. But for the first time in a year, I decided to pick up a book in paperback and read it. This experience of going back to real books has made me realize a few things about the Kindle and myself.First off, I realized with horror that I am addicted to my Kindle and its features. The people who designed the Kindle did so with intent. The Kindle’s sole purpose is to read books — there are no other apps on it, there are no intrusive ads, and there is nothing to distract you from reading. Honestly, the device is relatively primitive compared to other consumer electronics, but that is a design choice and not a flaw. I would argue it is even easier to get lost in a book using the Kindle than it is with a physical book.And then there are the features — the glorious features. My favorite feature by far is the built-in dictionary. When reading a physical book and coming across a word I didn’t know the meaning of, assuming I couldn’t intuit the meaning from context, I would have to mark my place in the book, put it to the side, pull out my phone, and Google the word. This is tedious. It also breaks my train of thought and forces me to use my dreadful phone with all of its notifications and apps and stuff that sends me into a panic and introduces into my reading time the potential to sidetrack myself. I hate that. With my Kindle, all I have to do is touch the word and a popup with the definition appears and is dismissed just as easily, and then I’m off reading again — an interruption that is barely even noticed and my attention remains intact. Even better is the fact that my Kindle keeps a list of all these words that I’ve looked up over time, and I can review them anytime. I look at it occasionally and quiz myself — this is my idea of ‘fun’.Now I’m a big fan of writing in my books — I underline, highlight, and write in the margins constantly. If I ever need inspiration or if I’m trying to remember something I’ve read, I will thumb through the book I found it in until I eventually find it. Sometimes when I get bored I will sit in front of my bookshelf and go through the books I’ve read looking at all the passages I highlighted to refresh my memory on all those inspiring things that I read in years past. It’s a little tedious but not too bad. This habit of highlighting is not lost to me while reading on my Kindle. You simply press and drag your finger across the passage which will highlight it. But that’s not the best part: Kindle will keep up with everything I have highlighted and organize it all for me by the book it was found in. So at any given time, I can see all of my highlights in any of the books I have read, and I can even share them to my Goodreads profile! This gets me visibly excited.The last feature I want to talk about is the backlit screen. If you do any of your reading in bed then you probably have a bedside lamp or a flashlight or some other novel light source designed for books. Maybe it’s just me but I find it difficult to get comfortable in bed and read a paperback at the same time. Either my spouse is annoyed by the light while she is trying to sleep or I can’t find the perfect position that makes it both comfortable and easy to read. The Kindle has a backlit screen with adjustable lighting and a “warm” light setting. This means all other light sources in the room can be extinguished and I can still get my reading done. No book-light required. The Kindle is so lightweight that I can lay or recline in any position comfortably. No more fighting with those books whose binding is stiff and unyielding.So now we come to the point of this post. A confession. It’s a confession to myself and the world. As much as this pains me to say: The Kindle offers a far superior reading experience over books. I said it. I don’t like it any more than you do, but it is simply true. The onboard dictionary, the highlights, the backlit screen, the insane battery life (I charge this thing once a month), all of it together creates the most consuming and productive reading experience available. I still feel subtle pangs of guilt when I look at my bookshelf. I don’t think that will ever go away for anyone who truly loves books. But now my bookshelf has become a kind of “greatest hits” display. I still buy all the best books I read, and I now consider my bookshelf as a place of honor for all the greatest books. But I think of my Kindle as another appendage on my body — I never go anywhere without it.I love books. I love my Kindle. To my fellow book lovers out there who are still opposed to the idea of a Kindle, I say that you can love both. It will be okay. The Kindle isn’t evil after all.

    As you probably know, the kindle paperwhite is black and white and is used as a dedicated e-reader for books and other reading material. This device acts like printed media rather than a tablet — once your book is open there are no ads and no distractions, simply fast reading on a comfortable device.I’ve upgraded to several generations of kindle paperwhites over ten years. This review is for the 11th generation that came out in 2021. The idea of within a minute retrieving any book in my library or getting a brand new book is simply irresistible.The kindle paperwhite is a great e-reader. Note that it frequently goes on sale so try to time your purchase so you can save $$. These are the things I like about it:* PORTABLEThe kindle paperwhite is small and light and fits easily into my purse, even with a cover.By the way if you get a kindle definitely get a cover as well to protect it. As an added bonus, the cover makes the kindle feel like a slim book while you’re reading. There are many attractive covers in addition to the official amazon ones.* WATERPROOFThe kindle paperwhite is waterproof. Indispensable for the pool or bathtub.* EASY ON THE EYESThe screen lighting of the kindle paperwhite is adjustable and reading is pleasant. I prefer to read with black background and white letters. (Settings > Accessibility > Invert Black and White). You can change the brightness by swiping down from the top and finding the “Brightness” setting. And don’t forget you can change font and text size as well. When your book is open simply touch the top of the screen, select Aa > Font then adjust as you want.Print on the screen is quite clear both in bright sunlight and in a dark room. You can even make the lighting warmer (more yellow) for nighttime reading by swiping down from the top and finding the “Warmth” setting.* READ TO YOU EVEN IF YOU DON’T USE AUDIBLEThe text to speech (TTS) feature is my very favorite 🙂 I love having my kindle read to me so I can do other things like needlework or driving at the same time.TTS works even if you don’t have audible books, alexa, or a phone app. Simply connect your bluetooth device to the kindle (Settings > Wi-Fi & Bluetooth > enable Bluetooth > select your device) then turn it on (Settings > Accessibility > VoiceView Screen Reader). You can adjust the volume and speech rate to your liking.* LONG BATTERY LIFEYes, the battery really lasts for days or weeks. Things like bright screen level, wifi on, and TTS may drain the battery at a faster rate. The kindle uses a C adapter.* PLENTY OF SPACE FOR ALL YOUR BOOKSThe standard kindle paperwhite has 8 GB storage which can store at least 2000 or 3000 ebooks or roughly 35 audible books. You can also get a kindle paperwhite with 16 GB or for even more space for audible books you can get a Signature paperwhite with 32 GB.______As I’ve gone through several generations of the kindle paperwhite I’ve noticed that while the physical device continues to get better, I don’t like the software as much as previously. Here are three things in particular:* NO GAMESI really really miss the games. These were so fun to play for me and to entertain young ones. Please can we bring supportive software for games back?* KINDLE DEVICE HOME AND LIBRARY SCREENSI hate the Home screen because most of the screen is taken with book recommendations rather than your own library. The top ribbon shows the book covers in order of last opened. You can only see three and a half books so you’ll be doing a lot of scrolling if you’re looking for a book you read a while ago.The Library screen is a bit better because you can list your books by title or author (three lines at top right screen give you “Sort by” screen), but the listings still include book cover thumbnails that take up room. I admit I’m fussy but I like to have a compact list that I can scan quickly rather than needing to scroll through page after page and/or removing books from my device. (The books are still accessible in the cloud but will need to be reloaded if I want to read them again).* COLLECTIONS IN AMAZON CLOUDSince the beginning until now, Amazon cloud storage uses only one layer of folders. If you have, say, science fiction books and mysteries, you either jumble them together in “Fiction” or else you have to make two separate folders that don’t link. Please, Amazon, fix this._____Overall while the kindle paperwhite isn’t *perfect* it’s pretty darn close and lovely to read for books with plain text and images/photographs. PDFs and more complex images like maps are difficult to see on the small screen and may do better with the Kindle Scribe which is larger. If you want a reader with color and web browser capabilities you may want to consider getting a kindle Fire rather than paperwhite.The kindle paperwhite is a great device for what it is meant to do — read books — and for that I will give five stars, although I am keeping my fingers crossed for software updates to make the experience even better.

    I owned a Kindle WAY back in the day – when they first came out. It died because I forgot about it and its screen froze (poor thing). I have been reading on iPad, phone, or computer but that has been causing eye strain and the weight on my forearm was becoming an issue with my newest phone.I researched the different Kindle types (really want to be given a Scribe version but that was not the answer to resolving my concerns). Looked into Paperwhite and chose this version because of the C-type charger and a few other features.I waited impatiently to receive. The first thing I did was put a screenprotector on it so it didn’t get smudged. There was a 57% charge. It was fairly easy to pull over my existing account using QR code on screen to link. There are certain things that are different from app – lack of color (which is fine) and some functionality.Overall I like it. These are the things that I have concern over – not sure if it is THIS one or all of them or user-error. The charge seems to go much faster than I remember was it because I used it for an hour before fully charging? I like the Dark-mode. sometimes when I change pages it flashes regular mode, why? The highlighting feature sometimes irritates me because it is always giving huge banner of options – I think on phone it just doesn’t seem to overwhelm the screen as much. I thought on the kindle EVERY book could read to you (not fancy voices – just AI) but I can’t seem to find the option. I remember it from my old version. I am having to learn where to press or slide to get action want since this is simpler than options you have on a phone but I am getting the hang of it.Overall, I am happy with my purchase. I am hoping the battery will sort itself out because I would never get weeks out of it and if I can get it to quit flashing white.—————————————————–The Collections option is okay but it doesn’t show all of the things I have in the collection. I have a HUGE library so maybe it didn’t pull them all over? I wish that Amz would create an export list for all books – like Title, Author, pub date, purchase date $ paid – one so you could import into goodreads or bookbub as owned (not want to read but Owned) or have as records to add notes when you have a massive collection.I also wish that there was a way to ARCHIVE BOOKS (NOT DELETE FOREVER) ones that you did not want to download on any devices. Like ones that you have read but are 99% sure will never read again or ones that you are currently not interested but don’t want to see. Then if you ever need the book and do a search in Content/devices, you could find it and send to a device that way.Also, it would be great if there were some default collections. Read, Archived (see above), Samples, Nonfiction, Fiction. Also would love if screensaver had time and battery down by swipe up. Would be great. and a search function for ADD collections (like in app).(msg for Amazon) – thanks. 🙂
