Dont forget that you can get cases for 1/2 the price on Alibaba!
Can't notice the difference between my old 166 and new 300 ppi unless right beside each other.

If you guys are planning on reading in the tub, get the Paperwhite.
If you've never read in the tub, I strongly recommend it.

Thanks, got one for night reading. Resolution has never been an issue, it's e-ink. Also waterproof might be needed but it's not like you can't use this thing by a pool, I've never had an issue with water getting on it.

Is it true that you can't read e-books from the public library on the Kindle?

In Toronto, you can’t. The apps used for ebooks are Libby/Overdrive/Adobe Digital Editions and sending those books to kindle through the Libby/Overdrive only works in the US for now.

How are these? I used to have a Sony PRS-T1 but even with a matte screen found annoying glare when using a reading light. I'm guessing the built-in light would prevent that here.

Does this or any other e-reader have text to speech?
My first reader was a prs-t1 as well and I can tell you that even eReaders of 4-5 years ago have come a long way since then. Backlit screens are pretty standard now and it's not going to cause glare.

Haha, same here! I got one for free by signing up for a Sony MBNA credit card. I believe I saw that deal here on RFD almost a decade ago. I'm now using a gen 1 Kobo Aura, and felt no need to replace it since acquiring it. Colored e-readers are coming out one-by-one nowadays, I'm sure Kobo will get in that game soon too.

Thanks. Didn't want to wait for Kobo to go back on sale.

Thanks - good to know! Although, PRS-T1 had same resolution as this Kindle here, so I guess it was ahead for its time ;)

another sony t1 user. lol

I have a question how fast this reader opens a book and how many books it can handle in the memory.
If I have a dozen or more books on my t1 it becomes extremely slow and could not navigate through the list and open books very slow.

i have an old Paperwhite (like 6 or 7 years) and i have to say its a really great product

I try to shy away from single purpose electronics ( just one more extra thing to lug around) but its designed for one thing and does that one thing really really well.

If you are a heavy reader I would get the one that performs/feels best in hand to you even if its a few $$$ more . Money well spent
