    Quirky, but fun

    Since this Kindle is based on a linux instead of an android system, the interface is a little different than what I've been used to. I mainly got this as a backup item and to use in the bathtub. For all that it advertises itself as waterproof, it warns not to submerse it in water and to carefully set it up to drain and not turn it on if it does get dropped in the water. The interface is finicky and the web browser is mediocre. However, I've wanted a tablet I can read in the bathtub or by the pool forever, and this is the best option. I got the version with ads, but you can turn the screen off so they're not showing all the time.

    The Kindle Paperwhite screen is wonderful. The interface is not as user friendly as an iPhone. I wish you could use it in landscape mode vs portrait as typical book. The ads are annoying unless you subscribe. Access to free and low .99c collections of classic authors is outstanding. I wish they had this device when I was in school. As poor folk we never went to libraries.
