So I have a Kindle touch. It was a hand me down from my mom whem she got a paperwhite, but the touch is starting to get old and wear out. Does anyone have any feedback on whether the paperwhite is as good as my mom claims? Thanks!

I have a Kindle Paperwhite and I love it. You can adjust the light on your kindle to your satisfaction.

I love my paperwhite! I've had the kindle 2 and 3 versions. Most of the time when I read is at night and being able to have the built in light is amazing. Surprisingly is isn't bright like a phone, but has a soft light that doesn't strain your eyes. I highly recommend it. Even if you are reading during the day, the light is adjustable and can enhance your reading experience.

I have the kindle fire that I use it for everything. However, if you're looking for something only for reading, the paperwhite is definitely worth it. It's much easier on the eyes at night and the battery lasts way longer.

The Paperwhite is excellent and well worth it. I upgraded from the touch when the Paperwhite first came out and loved it. It is the ereader I was waiting for since I was a 10 year old reading under the covers by torch light. If you have a Touch imho the decision to upgrade to a front-lit reader is a no-brainer, and the Paperwhite seems to represent very good value at the moment.

I also am thinking about getting a Kindle Paperwhite. It seems really cool, but I've never had a kindle before and just used my old iPad 2 to read. However, it is getting really old and running out of space quickly, and crashes all of the time. I want a kindle but since the Paperwhite is relatively new it is pretty pricey. Should I bother getting it or go for one of the older models?

Hi,
I was just on the Amazon site and saw that there is a new Kindle Paperwhite version available Jan.10.2016. It has 300 ppi, and has a version with 3gb where you can connect anywhere (is this also new?). I have not used a Kindle so far, any thoughts as to this being a good purchase?

I definitely think it's worth it. It's very light and the built in light is so handy for reading at night.
