Summary: I have a Fire HD 8.9, which I LOVE! I've been carrying it to and from work with me but since I'm not on a network at work all I do is read on it so I wanted to try the basic Kindle. I got this for a great price and I love it. Compared to my Fire it's so much smaller and lighter and perfect to carry to work with me every day. And, yes, it can be read outside in the sun!
Summary: I am an avid reader, and have owned a Kindle since 2009. When my Kindle developed some operational problems a while ago I knew it was time to get a new one. This new Kindle is smaller (it took about 5 minutes to get used to it) and lighter weight. Transferring my content was seamless and simple. I was able to call direct to the insurance provider and purchase an additional 2 year warranty.
Summary: Product used item works as new. Great value. I bought this item because my wife has one and we were both trying to read books on the kindle. I did not think I would like this type of reading. I thought I needed the feel of a book. Not so, I like my kindle and I don't have to store a large number of books.
Summary: Would like to write a review but, were not able to use as could not be registered by Amazon!!!! Took forever to get returned and money returned from pay pal bill bill me later!!!!! Whole experience lasted over a month!!!!!!
Summary: This is my first e-book and I am very happy with my choice! My Kindle is light, easy to use, it has an elegant design and long battery life (I've been using it a lot for the past 2 weeks and there's still some battery left). The buttons are handy, especially the ones that flip pages (on the side), I totally prefer this to the touch screen Kindle. The menus are intuitive and you pretty much have all the options you need.
Summary: Great product for a starter e-reader. Would only recommend for avid readers, and screen quality is awesome. I'll most likely upgrade to a more advanced e-reader soon, but this is a great product for any dedicated reader.
Summary: I have never used a Kindle prior to this and initially had some difficulty navigating around to find what I was looking for. However, after a few hours of playing with it I was able to understand the basics. I am not sure about the underlining and highlighting of text but that is ok because I do not need it. I got the kindle for travel to cut down on the weight and bulk while traveling and in that respect it did exactly what I needed.
Love to save money and still get your money's worth? This is for you!

Summary: I got this as a Christmas gift, and it is one of the most useful gifts I've ever received! It is absolutely a great bargain - no, not as flashy as the Fire, but not nearly as expensive either! And I love its lightweight, compact design - I have fibromyalgia, so that matters a great deal to me. And it can hold a TON of ebooks and MP3s - as I can attest to; I've loaded mine down with HOURS of entertainment material!
Summary: I bought this for my wife, as I already have one and use it daily! Mine is used for school, and i use it to view .pdfs, or buy some textbooks on it, (novels that we need to read), and also borrow books from e-libraries as well. My wife loves it, and uses it almost every day as well! Lightweight, awesome battery life, and easy to use, it's a great device for those who like to read a lot, and like to carry their library with them.
