"The 2013 edition of the Kindle Paperwhite is, hands down, the best dedicated e-book reader out there. The display is clear and bright, the available content library covers all the bases, the battery life remains high, and the user interface is easy to use and doesn’t get in the way once you start reading.
There are other options available, but if you are looking for an e-book reader and are happy to spend the money, it would be hard to fault the decision to buy the Kindle Paperwhite."
Make sure you get the 2013 version of the Kindle, the one with the large Amazon emblazoned on the back. It has significantly better lighting to the physically identical 2012 model which many stores carry at the same price of $119.00. If you have older eyes the difference is well worth the search.
