I have the Voyage and love it. It is lighter, and the sensors on each side used to go forward or back are a nice addition.

Kindle Paperwhite

The Kindle present arrived today. I am so pleased. I hope it gives pleasure year-round.

I also got the case that springnr recommended. I can't see it because it's wrapped, so it'll be a surprise for me on Christmas too!

Kindle Paperwhite

The new Paperwhite (and case) were presented on Christmas Day and much appreciated.

When I finally saw the case, I was kind of jealous, it's so slick! But it's getting a good home.

Great comments and pointers!

Well, I have to say I gave in to temptation.
During a trip last month I accidentally got a very noticeable scratch in the screen of my Paperwhite (I foolishly didn't have any sort of cover for it).

So I treated myself to a Xmas present of the new Kindle Voyage.
I absolutely LOVE IT!!!

The page turning routine is even better than the Paperwhite, although it still handles the same system if you like it.

Plus I got this wonderful case for it
Amazon.com: Amazon Protective Cover for Kindle Voyage, Black: Kindle Store
that protects it beautifully, closes with a magnet and turns it on/off by opening/closing it, and folds itself into a great tabletop stand.

Kindle Paperwhite

This has very little, but some, to do with the subject, but that doesn't stop me.

Going full circle: the Kindle gift recipient surprised me on Christmas with a nice (and completely unexpected) coffee grinder that I love and use daily.

So it's smiles all around and now I got me a great cuppa joe with which to enjoy my still-loved Paperwhite with which this thread began.

I was just noticing that while I have a Kindle paperwhite that I like and have used a lot, I seem to have switched over to using my new iPad Air 2 for reading lately.

The iPad is much lighter than my old iPad (which seemed too heavy to hold for extended reading sessions) and I like its crisp bright display for reading. The iPad is a nice even brightness, while the paper white's illumination isn't even.

Of course I'm doing my reading inside this winter, so I'll have to see if the iPad Air 2 has improved its usability for reading outside when the weather gets better.

You'll be surprised at how much better it is than the older iPad. I certainly was.
