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: 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.
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.
It is my mental salvation while waiting at a doctor that never is on time.

Summary: Bought my daughter one and she loved it, so I decided to get one for myself.I take it everywhere with me,Since I have so many doctor appointments, at least I know I will have a book that I am interested in or at the very least I have the ease of being able to buy games and books that belong to me that will be earmarked.
