I've been an avid Kindle user for years, but when I saw this version, I knew it was time to upgrade. The main selling point is the fact that this one is waterproof. So waterproof, in fact, that it can be in up to 2 meters of fresh water for more than 60 minutes. Plus, it's lighter, has more storage, and the battery lasts for WEEKS. I took this on vacation with me a while ago and was so impressed. I was able to sit on the ledge in the pool and read without worrying about getting the device wet. And I even put it in the water to test, and it still works perfectly. Plus, I used it every day and didn't have to charge it the whole time I was on the trip. That gets a big gold star in my book. And I'm not the only one that thinks this. It has more than 52,000 5-star reviews and 4.4 out of 5 stars. If you're an avid reader (or just a casual reader who wants to read more), this is for you.
Promising review: "I have an older Nook with e-ink display and have always really enjoyed the premise, but wanted something more modern. When I saw that this was waterproof, I was hooked. It reads just like a paper book, the light feature is gentle and perfect for night reading, the battery lasts for weeks, and I'm not worried about water damage at the beach or pool. I 100% would recommend it if you're an avid reader like myself." —whirledpieces
