After having the older style kindle, Im finding the tap screen very annoying. I read with my left hand so have to use my right hand to turn a page. If Im holding something in my right hand, then I have to put it down to turn the page, or my right hand may be snuggled under the bedclothes and same applies. Also struggle with picking up the devise as it jumps a page/s, goes to another area etc. I actually wish I had never bought it and looked at other models beforehand. If you are used to the older style, think again before buying and do a comparison with other brands.
