Ever since I received my first Kindle – the best gift anyone has ever given me, I should mention – I have become an avid reader. Whether I am at the doctor’s office waiting for my turn or on the transit commuting to or back from work, I have never been without a favorite book to expand my mind or simply entertain me.
If you are still one of those old-school readers, the recently launched Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite 2, is just for you. With a capacity to hold 1,100 books, it promises even better features. Glare-free display for easy reading in direct sunlight, eight weeks of battery life, built-in WiFi and free 3G, and a generous selection of Amazon books, gives even better reading experience for reading enthusiasts and dabblers alike.
Its new display with higher contrast gives a feeling of reading an actual book. Another added feature that my old Kindle never had is the built-in light that enables strain-free night reading. The processor is faster and the touch response is more accurate. Its light weight makes it even more attractive for one hand reading. Faster looking up of definitions, adjusting text size, and instant translation into several languages are other additional features which can all be performed without leaving the page. The cost is very affordable at $120.
