I have always shied away getting an E-ink reader since I have a tab, a phone and at times I read on my laptop/desktop. So on my birthday I decided to give the kindle a shot. I got the 4GB version since I don't use audible (I prefer GraphicAudio for audiobooks). Now I'm wondering why I never got a Kindle much earlier. The reader is great, last a long time without charges and great for anytime reading. The backlight is unlike the phone/tab kind so you actually can spend an entire night reading away! Overall I'm happy with my purchase. Tip: turn off the NW and Bluetooth when not needed else your battery drains a lot faster.
