Kindle Paperwhite E-reader (Previous Generation - 7th) - White, 6" High-Resolution Display (300 ppi) with Built-in Light, Wi-Fi - Includes Special Offers

^ I bought this in 2016. It's not my favorite, but it works well enough that I don't plan on upgrading at this time. I also have a much older kindle that I bought when Walmart was still carrying them (2012) that is not backlit that I actually prefer. It's just super sluggish, and not back lit. So I often read my purchased books on it and use the paperwhite for review books or books I want to take on the go with me where light might not be optimal.

I use the Kindle Paperwhite. I'm not all too sure which model, but it functions fine enough. For me I personally prefer physical media, displaying it on shelves and whatnot. The thing about the paperwhite is the latency. It has a plethora of smaller problems, but if you can overlook them then I'd say get that.
A process cannot be understood by stopping it. Understanding must move with the flow of the process, must join it and flow with it.

The only person who can sympathize with and understand you, is you. So, be good to yourself.

Paperwhite is still a viable and practical option. Despite the fact that new models with advanced features are now available, the previous option can still be used. If you have the budget, it must be great to use the most recent one though.

I use the Kindle paperwhite. It really like it. It doesn't do movies or anything like that, but man does it have a great library. I enjoy reading it when we taking long trips. The night light is amazing and it doesn't hurt my eyes.

I have the paperwhite and I love that I don't get distracted on it with notifications and other apps. There are things I would change about it like how I can't click multiple books at a time to move them to a folder or I can't organize the shelves how I want but other than that, I love it.

I was using Kindle paperwhite but it went bad and then I switched to the smartphones. Nowadays smartphones are as good as Kindle device.

I use a Kindle Paperwhite for most of my regular book reading. If the book has any sort of graphics, including a photo gallery in the middle of the book, I then use my Kindle Fire. I also prefer the Kindle Fire's scrolling ability, I wish the Paperwhite had that option.

I recently bought the 11th generation Kindle Paperwhite and I absolutely love it! I would definitely recommend it if you're in the market for a new e-reader.
