Well, I feel better. I made an agreement with my friend. If Amazon comes out with a Kindle Paperwhite that has significant improvements, such as color, then I will sell her my current one at a great discount, and get a new one!
The world is like a book, and those who do not travel, read only one page.

    I like my Kindle Keyboard. It's where I store my to-be-read books. I liked my Kindle Basic but I will be giving that away. My Kindle Paperwhite is a major leap from the Basic because of the light. I think it's fantastic. I often eat alone in restaurants and I have to read while I eat and people looked at me funny when I put on my headlamp to read.

    Sound on a Paperwhite would not get my money. Neither would color. I just read books. Waterproofing would probably get me to buy. More options at the larger end of the font size scale might get me to buy.

    We've been on our K2's for years, but my wife's is starting to act a little flaky.  They have been very reliable and we've felt no reason to change until now.  Her new 3G paperwhite was supposed to come yesterday, but UPS didn't show up.  I don't care about color for an ereader, but the paperwhite lit screen is a real plus since there are many places with poor lighting.  I may want one after I see hers.  My K2 is working fine though....and I just got a new Nexus 10 5 weeks ago.
