I love my Kindle Paperwhite. It’s easy to read on, I can highlight to my heart’s content, bring all my books with me when I travel and email documents to myself. It’s also easy on the eyes – much easier than a computer or a tablet screen – as it’s meant to duplicate the experience of reading on paper. Want one? Check it out on Amazon.com – you can get one in just a couple of days.
