I just saw a commercial for the new kindle paperwhite with 6″ display. They had book lovers talking it up. Had some sofas and overstuffed chairs sitting in the middle if an urban block. “A thousand books in my back pocket?” Said one fan.
My questions for you:
1. At $119 would you find it worth having another device in addition to your 4″ or 5″ smart phone display?
2. For die hard book lovers, does the paperwhite sound like something you would love? Is 1,000 books in your back pocket worth trading in the weight and feel of a real book?
I love my paperwhite. I love reading real books. I probably read half on the kindle and half in book. I read over 100 books a year. I love going on a trip and fitting all of my books in my purse instead of packing an extra bag of books. I don’t read on the ipad or on my phone. I don’t like reading on that kind of screen. The backlit paperwhite is fine and I can read without a lamp on, which Chris really appreciates.
