I upgraded from a Kindle Touch to the Kindle Paperwhite. A fantastic e-reader. Check out my review on gdgt.
One thing I typically am asked (being an Apple Junkie) is why would I buy a Kindle? My main reasons are:
- I actually like that it is a single-purpose device. It does one thing, and does it extremely well.
- I read on the subway. So if it gets jacked, I'm only out about $100, as opposed to $600 for my iPad. Plus, who jacks Kindles?
- Its much lighter and more pocketable than an iPad.
I also have to give the Kindle some due credit: I'm reading books again. I hadn't read anything since college. I didn't miss it, but now that I am reading again, I absolutely realize what I had been missing. If you're wondering, here's what I'm currently reading:
