This is my first kindle and I absolutely love it. I was nervous to buy as I love the feel of a real book but as my husband and I read a lot we’ve run out of bookshelf space and are constantly giving books we’d like to keep away to buy others. I’ve been reading on my kindle app on my iPad for 4 years but lately I’ve struggled with the glare of the screen from the backlight especially at night to the degree that it was hurting my eyes. Reading on the iPad really drains the battery fast and I was having to recharge everyday. So I stopped procrastinating and bought the kindle. I was nervous about setting up the kindle as I’m not tech savvy but to my delight it was already set up and my library was there so I got straight to reading and finished a book in 2 days. I love the no glare and that I can easily hold the kindle as the iPad gets heavy and hard to hold after awhile. I read with a light on at night so not having a light in the kindle wasn’t an issue for me.
