Whether you’re an e-reading veteran or hoping to get into it for the first time, the Kindle Paperwhite is top of the line. While other e-readers work more like tablets, with a computer-like screen that experiences glare and can cause eyestrain, the Paperwhite works just like a book, with a screen that is just as easy on the eyes as real paper! This is definitely book reading for the modern world. Let’s see what else the Kindle Paperwhite can do.
When you stumble across an unfamiliar word, do you get up and find a thesaurus? Or maybe you just skim past it and never find out what it means. One is inconvenient, the other leaves you where you started. With the Smart Lookup feature on the Paperwhite, you can access definitions and information with a single touch.
The new high resolution, high contrast screen will help your eyes glide over the words without a single stumble. Text is sharp, clear, and pixel-free no matter what font your book is using!
One more upgrade that the latest version features: Wi-Fi Networking. The Paperwhite’s web browser is simple, and you won’t want to use it for full-time Internet access (after all, if it had a full-featured browser, you’d constantly get distracted from reading!), but it’s a great option for when you need to get online and respond to an email or two on the go. You can also connect with friends over Goodreads to share reading lists and update them on your progress through books!
Books are great, but the Kindle Paperwhite can really take your reading experience to the next level—and save the trees in the process!
