Some shoppers love the Kindle Paperwhite more than the (much pricier) Apple iPad Mini. "...First of all, the display is gorgeous," raved one delighted five-star reviewer. "I love how crisp the lettering is and how the pages actually look like real paper. There's barely any glare on the screen when held up in sunlight —a huge advantage over the iPad Mini ...."

Another valued feature is the Paperwhite’s automatic power off: Close the case over the screen, and your device goes to sleep, preserving your page and battery power. So effortless.
Shoppers across the board are super-enthusiastic about this Kindle.
Says one customer: “I absolutely love my kindle. It's become such a staple in my life that I normally just tuck it into my purse no matter where I'm going. It's waterproof so I take it to the beach and on hikes without worrying that it'll get ruined. It's also great for reading in the bath. The battery life is ridiculous. Sometimes I can go like 2-3 weeks without ever having to charge it… I wish I'd bought a kindle sooner. I haven't read this much since I was in elementary school and first discovered the library.”
Let this Kindle Paperwhite sale launch a new chapter, where you boost your literary intake, enjoy summer more and lighten your load.
