 I get myself the latest kindle paperwhite from Amazon US last December. 

The reason I'm thinking to buy it because I see a lot of online content and I have tons of ebooks sitting in my iMac without reading. 

  • I heard that e-link is good for eyes.
  • I try to avoid sitting in front of my iMac to read.
  • I don't want to keep myself playing with phone lesser, don't want to use it to read.

So I was thinking maybe this Kindle Paperwhite can help me to read more without giving too much stress to my eyes.

Nope, I didn't buy it during Black Friday because only previous generation paperwhite has discount and I nearly bought it. After two weeks later, Amazon launches early 12 Dec discount and this time the latest version of Kindle Paperwhite is getting $20 discount.

Since I can't get Amazon to send it directly to my location, need to use some forwarder to forward it, by the time I get the kindle paperwhite is about to end December, I give myself two weeks to familiar with it, but I think I use it less than five times.

For me the device is like another walled garden, everything I need to email to that kindle email to read, the app can't sync between desktop and the kindle, content that I save in Instapaper also need to mail it over to read in kindle daily. It doesn't feel smooth like reading on iPad or iPhone; it's tough for me to fit in my whole Apple workflow.

In the end, I just went back to read on iPad, maybe find some time to try Kobo, it seems like it's more open integrate with other services.

    @knight I have some of the older version of Paperwhite and I like it so much, sure I am using it just for regular books, not for articles or posts from the internet.

    @knight I got a Kindle a couple years ago and it sits unused. I like the idea of taking it on trips so that I don't have to lug around multiple books. I think it worked better for reading fiction. For non-fiction, I have a tendency to want to take notes manually, and for some reason the Kindle doesn't lend itself well to that for me.
