Kindle PaperWhite Tips and Tricks

The main reason I bought the Kindle PaperWhite for my children is because unlike tablets like iPad or Samsung Galaxy Note, the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is specifically designed to deliver the best reading experience.  Furthermore, it is a pure eReader device and your kids can't do anything else with it except reading.

The main benefits of getting an Kindle PaperWhite are as follows:

  • No screen glare even in bright sunlight.
  • You can read with one hand as it is over 30% lighter than iPad mini.
  • The battery lasts weeks and not hours.
  • No need to carry books around helps to reduced the demands for tress.
  • Most importantly, their next-gen built-in light enable you to read without eyestrain.
