That is the Goldilocks in Amazon’s line and our present PJDM Editors’ Alternative within the class. Listed here are some issues we love concerning the Kindle Paperwhite:

  • It is 10% thinner and lighter than the earlier model.
  • It has a “flush-front” design with a again made from a softer, grippy materials as a substitute of arduous plastic. 
  • It is a totally waterproof Kindle, just like the high-end Kindle Oasis, and has a plastic display that Amazon says is shatter- and scratch-resistant.

The most recent iteration of Amazon’s entry-level e book reader, which Amazon merely calls the Kindle, now has a self-illuminated display and an upgraded design. At $90, this e book reader does price $10 greater than the earlier mannequin, the Kindle 2016, however this Kindle gadget usually goes on sale for as little as $60. We desire the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite, which has the high-resolution show (textual content and pictures seem a bit sharper), is waterproof and has a barely higher lighting scheme. However should you do not wish to spend a lot for an e-reader, the usual Kindle is an effective possibility, particularly when it is discounted.

The Youngsters Version on sale right here features a case — there are four case choices to select from — together with a 12 months of Amazon Youngsters Plus (FreeTime Limitless), which usually prices $three a month and provides you entry to lots of of children books. Amazon Youngsters Plus consists of the entire Harry Potter collection, and the primary e-book from different well-liked collection comparable to Artemis Fowl.
