That is the Goldilocks in Amazon’s line and our present PJDM Editors’ Selection within the class. Listed below are some issues we love in regards to the Kindle Paperwhite:

  • It is 10% thinner and lighter than the earlier model.
  • It has a “flush-front” design with a again manufactured from a softer, grippy materials as a substitute of exhausting plastic. 
  • It is a absolutely waterproof Kindle, just like the high-end Kindle Oasis, and has a plastic display that Amazon says is shatter- and scratch-resistant.
  • It has built-in Bluetooth, so you may obtain Amazon Audible audiobooks and hearken to them with wi-fi headphones.

Notice that Amazon may 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. As an illustration, USB-C charging could possibly be added and maybe the lighting scheme could possibly be up to date, however we would not count on any dramatic upgrades.

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 value $10 greater than the earlier mannequin, the Kindle 2016, however this Kindle gadget commonly 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 in the event 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 Children Version on sale right here features a case — there are four case choices to select from — together with a 12 months of Amazon Children Plus (FreeTime Limitless), which usually prices $three a month and offers you entry to a whole lot of children books. Amazon Children Plus consists of the entire Harry Potter sequence, and the primary e-book from different common sequence resembling Artemis Fowl.
