1. I have a Kindle Fire HD that I used all the time for about a year.
  2. And then I started feeling like a fraud and want back to physical books.
  3. A week ago, for whatever reason, I decided I needed to spend money and I bought a Kindle Paperwhite.
  4. And then immediately downloaded the ebook of The Book Thief that was I was in the middle of reading because I couldn't bare to hold onto more than 7.2 oz of weight any longer.
  5. It's the perfect size.
  6. It's the perfect weight.
  7. The back light is the perfect clarity to look like you're reading a physical book and it doesn't strain my eyes.
  8. The battery has lasted nearly a week and still doesn't need charged.
  9. Unlike my Fire, I don't have other apps to distract me. It's strictly for reading.
  10. If you love books and feel like a jerk when you're using an eReader to read them, check out the Paperwhite...perfect compromise!
