I’ve been holding off on jumping on the e-reader band wagon for a while now – call me old school, but there’s just something about holding a hardback book in my hand that I love. But when I had the chance to try out the All-New Amazon Kindle Paperwhite I finally decided pulled the trigger. Better late than never, right?
It honestly couldn’t have come at a better time. I was in the middle of cleaning out my home office when my Kindle arrived, and during that clean out one thing becoming glaringly evident: I buy too many books.
Now I know there’s no such thing as too many books. They’re great, they expand your vocabulary, and they have the ability to transport you to far, far away places. Literally, yay for books, right?
What’s not so great about them is when you live in an apartment with little to not storage and have a really, really bad habit of buying books, never finishing them, and then letting them accumulate dust on my shelves (by shelves I mean the one tiny bookshelf in my entire apartment.)
Enter the Kindle Paperwhite to save the day with its 4GB of storage, which in layman’s terms means it can literally hold thousands of books in its tiny, yet capable self.
I know what you’re thinking: “The screen is next to impossible to read in any kind of direct light.” False! One of the shining features of their newest Kindle is that the pages literally read like paper, hence the Kindle Paperwhite title.
Basically, if you’ve still got some Christmas shopping to tackle, or you’re looking to reward yourself with a new travel companion for the adventures 2016 holds; look no further.
