The new Amazon Kindle Paperwhite!
I have to share this awesomeness that has just rocked my world!
Hubby has managed to secure a zillion good husband points for this ‘just because’ gift that arrived yesterday. He knows how much I LOVE my kindle and since the paperwhite wasn’t available to buy for my birthday last month, he still kept it on his list of things to buy and surprise, surprise it arrived without me knowing!
Today I ripped the cardboard packaging, which is black instead of the drab brown that it normally is, and whipped the kindle out to look at it!
The first thing I noticed was how light it was. I have been used to carrying around my kindle keyboard with the leather cover that comes with the in-built light. The cover weighs more than the kindle! So when I picked up the new paperwhite, I almost threw it across the room because it is so light!
Here’s a few pictures for you to drool over check out of my new kindle! (please excuse the appallingly chipped and ratty nail polish!)
The cover also has a cool embossed metal clasp that closes nicely with a magnet. It also puts the kindle to sleep like the iPads do.
The inside of the cover has kindle embossed also, and the screen, it’s awesome!
That’s me at 51% through Unjust Cause by Jaclyn A Wilson. You can kind of see the kindle on the left side of the photo on the inside of the cover if you squint and hold your tongue right.
Here is a photo comparing the kindles, with their screens on. This was taken in my study with a rather yellow light. Normally I wouldn’t have my light on and I’d be able to read the screen fine, but it’s just fantastic on the paperwhite.
