  1. If they still made them, the Kindle DX šŸ˜›

    I have the Paperwhite now, and it is really quite lovely. FWIW, they effective difference in DPI between the paperwhite and the voyage is the difference between reading newsprint and inkjet. It is noticeable, but not something I feel compelled to drop the two bills for the upgrade.

  2. I had a Kindle Keyboard, LOVED it. Then I got a Kindle Paperwhite. Now I realize I didn’t know what love IS. Amazing reader. Not sure about the Voyage. I’m sure I won’t be upgrading from Paperwhite, but maybe I would upgrade from nothing, or even from Kindle keyboard, which seems like it’s from the ’80s now…

  3. I use my Paperwhite from time to time, but I really miss the physical buttons on the older Kindle readers. It sounds like even though the Voyage reintroduced something similar, it will never beat a good ol’ physical button.

    CGP Grey has some excellent thoughts and “reviews” of both the Paperwhite and the Voyage:

  4. I bought a Kindle Fire so that I could check books out of the local library. It hasn’t worked out all that well. I have friends who have Paperwhites, and they absoutely love them.

      1. The issue probably isn’t with the Kindle itself. The waiting list to check out e-books from the library is usually incredibly long. Because of copyright, they can only issue a given number of the same title at a time, just like hardcopies from the shelf.

      2. Oh, you’re right about that Mike. New releases are barely worth an effort to get one from a library. Want to read the book behind a movie coming out? Welcome to being number 423 in queue for the 1 library e-copy they have.

      1. I don’t get it. How is it more convenient? I am not trying to be a smart ass or anything, I really would like to know how it is more convenient….I mean with a real book, I don’t need a charger, a cloud, etc…please enlighten!

  5. I’m late to the party, but I have a Kindle Touch and absolutely love it. I have had it for over 3 years and read from it every day. The lighted cover I have for it now costs just as much as the device itself, so I’d probably go with the Paperwhite if I had to purchase one new.

    The biggest difference for me between using the actual Kindle and the Kindle app on my iPad or phone is the eye strain. It is such a relief to read from the Kindle after staring at LCD screens all day.
