    This is great it has a battery they lasts days. It’s easy to read in the dark , outside , and with lights on in the house. The font can get bigger so easy to read.

    I have had many different versions of the Kindle readers and this one so far is my favorite. They have finally increased the storage space!!! I can get all my books and Audibles on this one device. I love it!!!

    I purchased it from best buy it had issues, and requested amazon to replacement and even the second replacement also had issues, so they sent me third replacement, now have to send the two devices back to them. Blurry images, screen blinks black, slow opening and highlighting, if we click one option it goes to some other, brightness and light differences compared to other device, I don’t know when i will encounter issues with the third device, i was not able to add video, to show blink and other things but i have attached photo which shows the screen brightness difference, sometimes in one device Bluetooth symbol appears when homescreen is clicked at top, battery comes 3 days approx but it depends on usage

    I am in LOVE with my Kindle. I debated purchasing one for well over a year, mainly because I worried I would not like it as much as an actual book. Let me tell you, I wish I purchased it sooner! I love finding new books quickly, the ads have actually lead me to a few books I am currently enjoying. Being able to download what amounts to a small library is super awesome too. If you are debating the purchase like I was, take the plunge. It’s worth it, in my opinion!

    I originally got this so I could take a copy of the Mueller Report on the plane rather than carrying the rather bulky paper version. It served that purpose well. A pleasant surprise is how easy it is on the eyes, particularly in a low light situation. Even reading in the dark is comfortable. One minor difficulty, which is more an issue with the content creators than the Kindle itself, is that some books (the M-Report being one) lack numbered pages, so it's hard to establish a correspondence between a location in the printed version and the e-Reader version. That being said, the Kindle does save your place when it goes to sleep. Other advantages to reading on a Kindle include having a built-in dictionary which you summon by simply touching the word you want to look up. Also, on supported books, the X-ray feature allows instant access to relevant Wikipedia pages and in-depth information about the book and its author. The Kindle has a plethora of Bluetooth and AudioBook capabilities, which I currently don't plan to use, but are nice to have available just the same. I highly recommend getting one of the Kindle covers that Amazon makes. Not only do they protect the unit, but simply closing the cover puts it to sleep, and opening it wakes it up. Overall, both the Kindle and the cover are high quality pieces.

    After much back and forth trying to decide between the Paper White and the Oasis, I decide on the PaperWhite. But after one week I took it back and paid the extra amount for the Oasis. The reason is there is not much room on the side to hold the device without your thumb touching the screen. Then with each page you have to lift your thumb and press the screen. That got annoying after awhile. It feels like you don't have much grip and you are having to gently hold on while also lifting your thumb to turn pages. The Oasis with the page turn buttons are much easier for me and I don't have to think to turn a page. (lifting your thumb sounds like nothing but the device is so small it takes some effort to accomplish and not drop the device.). Also I really enjoy the warm white screen the Oasis has. I'd say if you just want to try an eReader or give as a Gift then get the Paper White, but if you want to read every day for 30min or an hour get the Oasis.

    Love reading my books on it but there are definitely some cons to it. It is frustrating how there are consistently ads on it and that BestBuy does not sell the non-ads one. Definitely recommend the 32 gb one as I initially purchased the 8 gb one and after 3 books i was down to only 2 gbs.

    It's not easy to close a book because the menu information doesn't react easily to touch--keep trying to get it to drop open and it won't. Also, when pages change, there's a black blip in between each page--it's not a smooth transition. Too many steps in Menu to get to MY library--it never starts where I leave it but always reverts back to main screen. Tiresome.

    Bought a Kindle for my wife last year prior to vacation and kept borrowing it to read on the beach. So I bought myself one as well and it makes reading easy anywhere I travel. Long battery life is a plus while the non-glare screen is easy on the eyes. I haven't tested it's waterproof ability but I trust it works.

    as a hardcore paperback kinda guy

    i have always avoided the kindle and never had any interest whatsoever. As I've started trying to build a collection of books I realized the major downside of how much space they take up...broke down and ordered this new 10th anniversary kindle. I recommend it just to save space alone, well worth it, especially for a traveler.

    Soon I intend to read Moby Dick, a huge thing to carry around or try to hold up under the covers at night. The convenience is great. I bought it a few weeks ago and have had no problems so far. Maybe I'll let you know about reliability of the product in a few years.

    I love having a Kindle handy when I am at work, traveling/flying. It is so light and holds multiple books, as long as you have a charger you are ready to go. It is easier to read than normal books since the Kindle adapts to the sunlight/darkness. Very easy and simple to use.

    I love to read but it became hard when I would travel for long periods of time and couldn’t take too many books with me. The paper white is perfect for reading in all settings and super simple to use.

    I love this reader! It’s excellent and will mostly replace my bookshelf since I need the space. It’s light and can be held like a book. It has great functionality and downloads books quickly. It can be used with a cell phone hotspot in order to download a new book on the go or on the beach. It’s not 100% glare proof, but it’s close enough.

    I used a Nook for years, but it was starting to malfunction, so I decided to try the Paperwhite. The biggest thing I like is how light it is, but all of the functionality is great too. I especially like how it gives % of completion.

    I was reading on the iPad forever, but the noticeable difference in eye strain is appreciable! Even though the file formats are limited, I still have zero regrets about this purchase (: it took me forever to find a case, too (I'm picky) but once I did, it made the purchase that much better ^_^
