That is the Goldilocks in Amazon’s line and our present PJDM Editors’ Selection 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 laborious plastic. 
  • It is a totally waterproof Kindle, just like the high-end Kindle Oasis, and has a plastic display screen that Amazon says is shatter- and scratch-resistant.
  • It has built-in Bluetooth, so you’ll be able to obtain Amazon Audible audiobooks and take heed to them with wi-fi headphones.

Word that Amazon might replace the Kindle Paperwhite in 2020 (it was launched in Nov. 2018). If and when that occurs, it is unclear how a lot of an improve it will likely be. For example, USB-C charging may very well be added and maybe the lighting scheme may very well be up to date, however we would not count on any dramatic upgrades.

The most recent iteration of Amazon’s entry-level book reader, which Amazon merely calls the Kindle, now has a self-illuminated display screen and an upgraded design. At $90, this book reader does value $10 greater than the earlier mannequin, the Kindle 2016, however this Kindle system usually goes on sale for as little as $60. We choose 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 need to spend a lot for an e-reader, the usual Kindle is an effective possibility, particularly when it is discounted.

The Children Version on sale right here features a case — there are four case choices to select from — together with a yr of Amazon Children Plus (FreeTime Limitless), which usually prices $three a month and offers you entry to a whole bunch of children books. Amazon Children Plus consists of the entire Harry Potter sequence, and the primary e-book from different widespread sequence comparable to Artemis Fowl.
