    Not as good as the old Kindle Keyboard

    I didn't like the new Kindle Paperwhite as well as the old Kindle Keyboard that I have. The new Kindle has too many ads. Viewing the list of books was very awkward. You could either look at your collections or your entire list of books. On the old Kindle there were no ads and you could view your collection along with those book that weren't yet in a collection. Also, if you removed a book from the old Kindle, you no longer saw it. On the new Kindle I removed a book, but it still showed up in the list. I remove books I don't want to read for whatever reason. I don't always remember the names of these books. On the new Kindle those book titles still show up, so you begin reading them again only to discover that its the book you don't want. It was very confusing. The only thing I liked about the new Kindle was the fact that the screen was backlit so you could read at night without extra lighting. There were more cons than pros for me, so I ended up returning the new Kindle Paperwhite and sticking with my old Kindle Keyboard.

    The new Paperwhite has a different lighting system and it has much more of a blue lighting than the other models. It is more difficult to adjust to a comfortable reading lighting setting. I called Amazon and they suggested buying a filter film which I did. That took two weeks to be delivered and was not the correct size. In cutting it down as recommended, it was impossible to apply as directed without a lot of bubbles The seller issued a full refund, but, I am left with the same problem of reducing the blue light level.
