Is the new kindle paperwhite 4 screen really that bad compared to the paperwhite
23 January 2019 03:21 (GMT)[font="Noto Sans", "Helvetica Neue", "Segoe UI", Helvetica, Verdana, Arial, sans-serif]I'm planning on upgrading from a pw3. Selling mine at a decent price. However reading reviews and comments. Many people keeps on saying that the screen and contrast is faded as washed out, that the text is not as crisp as the pw3. This is a massive downer for me. How bad of a difference is it? Have you noticed it? Does it take away from the reading experience[/font]
[font="Noto Sans", "Helvetica Neue", "Segoe UI", Helvetica, Verdana, Arial, sans-serif]I also read about glares but I'm more concerned about the text not being as sharp as the pw3.[/font]
[font="Noto Sans", "Helvetica Neue", "Segoe UI", Helvetica, Verdana, Arial, sans-serif]I am afraid that if I purchase it, and I don't like it. I won't be able to go back to my pw3.[/font]
[font="Noto Sans", "Helvetica Neue", "Segoe UI", Helvetica, Verdana, Arial, sans-serif]Do you have any experience about it? Please advice me[/font]
Is Kindle Paperwhite worth it?
23 January 2019 03:17 (GMT)[font="Noto Sans", "Helvetica Neue", "Segoe UI", Helvetica, Verdana, Arial, sans-serif]I read on my phone. A LOT. Lately I have noticed I'm getting terrible eye strain, which I have experienced before with PC screens. I also find it hard to concentrate on the book and I find myself opening reddit or falling down stupid internet holes instead.[/font]
[font="Noto Sans", "Helvetica Neue", "Segoe UI", Helvetica, Verdana, Arial, sans-serif]Is switching from scribd to kindle unlimited (because it doesn't work with scribd) going to prevent me from reading new-ish books? Scribd has almost everything with their subscription and that's a big reason I'm hesitant to switch. I can afford both, I just can't read [font="Noto Sans", "Helvetica Neue", "Segoe UI", Helvetica, Verdana, Arial, sans-serif]that[/font] much![/font]
[font="Noto Sans", "Helvetica Neue", "Segoe UI", Helvetica, Verdana, Arial, sans-serif]I think a Kindle with E-ink would help but I wanted to get some personal perspective from anyone with similar situations.[/font]
22 January 2019 17:32 (GMT)e seem to be having power cuts here at the moment. No problem, I have my 3G Kindle. Except the phone wasn't working but my Home Hub was. So my Kindle wouldn't connect to 3G, it wanted me to sort out the wifi problem.
How can I overcome this and do 3G 'on demand'? I have turned all elctricity off now to avoid another surge and am writing this on my Kindle.

Advantages of eBooks over printed books
22 January 2019 17:01 (GMT)Nowadays, eBooks are commonly used around the world. It is because of the advantages it has over the hard bounded printed books. These books are portable and anyone can easily take them in their phones, tablets or laptops. You don’t have to carry a separate book with you. Even the ebook writers have also started to launch their books editions in hard copy as well as an eBook so as to target both the readers’ community. The other advantage that attracts the customer is the buying cost which is much less than the printed book. What do you think, which one is better?
One book sample has giant text compared to every other book
19 January 2019 09:41 (GMT)So I downloaded a sample of "the Budayeen Cycle The Complete Series" and for some bizarre reason the text is huge. It's not from the option to zoom the text size out/in, when I use it on this book the smallest size is still significantly larger than other books'. All the options (font, margin size etc) are the same as my other books. 1337x KissAsian MangaStream
Is this a bug or is there some option I've overlooked? Also I was hoping a kind soul might be willing to download the sample and tell me if it's the same for them. This is on a kindle fire hd 8.

Free until 1/24 The Green Berets: Chasing the Son
20 January 2019 13:59 (GMT)CHASING THE SON (GREEN BERETS)
Place, time and family. Three things that shape individuals. Sometimes with love. Other times with violence.
Former covert operative, Horace Chase, has just discovered he has a son; a son who fled the Military Institute of South Carolina a year and a half ago after being accused of murder. The victim is the grandson of the most powerful woman in Charleston, South Carolina, who has sworn vengeance.
Chase teams up with another former covert operative, Dave Riley, and one of Riley’s old CIA friends, Kate Westland, to find his son and uncover the truth. Barely into their investigation they become caught up in a land development deal for Daufuskie Island worth hundreds of millions.
Chase and Riley’s covert background has taught them many things, but the most valuable has been that nothing is ever as it appears as an old nemesis rears her head, hell bent on revenge against them both along with a good helping of greed.
And in the shadows hovers THE CELLAR, the agency that polices the world of covert operations.
One by one, the competitors for the land deal are being killed and the threat to Chase’s son grows. And nothing, not the present, not the past, and no one, are as they appear to be.
Who will be left standing?

14 January 2019 13:25 (GMT)Eternity Base
Maverick federal employee Sammy Pintella, obsessed with uncovering the fate of her MIA father, makes a startling discovery while rifling through some inactive government files. A dozen, faded black and white photos seem to point to the existence of a secret US Military base built in the frozen wastelands of Antarctica during the height of the Cold War.
Aided by Special Forces veteran Dave Riley, she heads for Antarctica. But they aren’t alone. Spies, North Koreans, and other shadowy forces are also en route, because deep inside Eternity Base is something people will go to extreme lengths to get: a cache of nuclear warheads.
