I love my Paperwhite. It's much easier on your eyes than a normal screen, and it's pretty lightweight. Another thing I love about the Kindle Paperwhite is the fact that there are no distractions. On a normal Kindle, you can access the internet and receive emails and all that glam. It can be quite distracting when you simply want to read a book.
However, I still prefer to read physical books

I like Paperwhite for actual reading because it has a non-glare screen.
I like Fire for audio books but I don't read on it because I think that glare screens are bad for your eyes.

Surprisingly is isn't bright like a phone, but has a soft light that doesn't strain your eyes.
What a very important detail! This could be a selling point for me. I always thought that the Paperwhite would have a glaring white light.
You can spend your time however you want, but you can spend it only once.

I am saving money to buy a kindle. I am from India. there are no service centres from Kindle here. some reviews on Amazon scares me. They claim that their kindle screen was dark when they received it. some just stopped working after 3 months and just wouldn't on.what if my kindle gets sick? how can I fix it without a service centre?

I missed an update I think because I didn't see email warnings..... now it doesn't behave, works slow, sometimes can't see pages of books I have downloaded..... and hard to turn on besides

I've heard the Paperwhite is easier on the eyes.

Obviously I don't know what your mom has said, but I have had the Paperwhite since 2014 and I love it.
It's easy and practical to use. It reads like a book asks is small enough to be held in one hand. If my house was burning, it'd be one of the things I grab on the way out.
