"The Best eReader"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I have a Kindle that I purchased 10yrs ago that still works, but it was quickly becoming frustrating to use, so I upgraded to the Kindle Paperwhite and I'm so glad that I did! It is so much easier to use than the older version I have and having a backlight makes it a joy to read from my bed at night. I no longer need a reading light or my bedside table lamp on full brightness. Being able to charge via Type-C cable is awesome too! I highly recommend this product if you're looking for good eReader
