Review: Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

No doubt, my love for writing began as a young girl and has continued on with me ever since.  But my love for reading goes back even further.  There is something magical about it, a book is something that takes me places I've never been.  Other than my dreams, a book carries me away and doesn't let me go.

While I love books, I love speed even more!  The ability to have a book in an almost instant has always fascinated me but it wasn't until I got a Kindle Paperwhite that I finally knew what it was about.  A book in less than 60 seconds?

Yes Please!

A gadget that reads like a book but isn't?  A gadget that gets me almost any book I want to read in less than 60 seconds?  It has taken me quite a while to finally take the plunge and go all digital, giving up the smell of a book is hard to replace, but there had to be a better way that wait days to get a book and begin to sink my teeth in it!

Sharp, dark text

Enjoy text that reads like the printed page. All fonts have been hand-tuned at the pixel level for maximum readability and comfort.

Take and share notes

Add margin notes that you can edit, delete, or even export from your device to your computer. Share highlighted sections and meaningful quotes on Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads, and see passages frequently highlighted by other Kindle readers.

Flip through without losing your place

With Page Flip, you can skim page-by-page, scan by chapter, or skip to the end for a sneak peek without losing your place.

Lighter than most paperback books, comfortably hold Kindle in one hand for long reading sessions.

There are three versions of Kindle: Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite and the new one Kindle Voyage.  The one I have is the Paperwhite and the one I am reviewing. Amazon currently has it for $99 (with offers) or for 5 monthly payments of $19.80!  Amazon is making it as easy as can be for us to get our hands in a Kindle.  I am so glad I finally did!
