Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Review
28 May 2014
Summary: As far as the Kindle Paperwhite goes, it’s arguably the best e-reader you can buy if you’re a book worm. It’s a single-purpose device that allows you to focus on the words and cut out all of the distractions of today’s modern world.
Excerpt: With its sixth-generation Kindle e-reader, Amazon knows if it ain't broke, don't fix it. The new Kindle Paperwhite, still just $119, offers a nearly identical design and user interface as last year's model.
Excerpt: The Kindle Paperwhite eReader from Amazon tops today's eBook readers with the best features with the best pricing. For all those positives, it may not take top spot by as wide a margin as some reviewers opine.
Excerpt: Amazon won the ebook reader war. Like the iPod, the Swiffer, or Jell-O, the Kindle is just what you buy when you want what it does. Barnes & Noble and Sony went down swinging trying to compete, and Kobo and Iriver are but gnats to be swatted by the great Amazon behemoth.
Pros: Improved display, faster page-turning, Amazon's bookstore is enormous, Reference materials and options are really useful
Cons: Recommendations and ads are hard to distinguish, Still no charger in the box

Pros: High Resolution, Expansive Ecosystem, Good Parental Controls, Handles PDF’s Well, Home Screen is Upgraded from Prior Models, Best Demonstration of Glow Technology Found in e-Readers, Lots of International Support
Cons: Locks you Into the Amazon ecosystem, Does not read EPUB, Special Offers Costs $20.00 to Remove
Conclusion: For $120 — or $140 if you don’t want the ads, which are mostly non-intrusive – the Kindle Paperwhite is a worthwhile investment for a book reader. If you’re already into the Nook ecosystem, this probably isn’t a reason to switch since the Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight is also a great e-reader,...
