Amazon Kindle Paperwhite video review

Andrew Williams



Read the full Amazon Kindle Paperwhite review

There's room for improvement in future models, but the Kindle Paperwhite is the best, most complete version-feeling of the Kindle to date. It doesn't have every feature the series has ever offered, but it does offer everything that related to what Kindles are all about - reading. And the light will seem nothing short of a revelation to those who spent £60 on a Kindle light case a few years ago.

I can just about comprehend Amazon's curmudgeonly attitude to lending libraries - their MO seems to be to tempt you into the water with a profitless Kindle price, and make hay on the book sales. So all the more reason to rue the fact that it is not possible to buy someone the gift of a book via Kindle.

With Christmas on its way, and birthdays ever present, what better that to buy all those Kindle-toting friends and family a nice book to read on their latest gadget? But, incomprehensibly, not possible.

Amazon gift voucher?

or why not just slip a 20 quid note in their chrimbo card? It's hardly the same as choosing and giving a book, which was my original point.

"Hold a finger down over a word and the OED description will pop up"

Actually, it's the Oxford Dictionary of English, which is a very different beast. See

Useful review otherwise :-)

Get a Kobo Glo and get use of 'free' library books; it has saved me many hundreds of pounds (UK) already!

Get a Kobo Glo (which is arguably better anyway) and get free library books. Alternatively, carry on and pay Amazon.
