RE: Help me choose a new Kindle

I find the paperwhite light and very easy to use with one hand when the occasion demands - eg whilst reading in the bath!

The screen isn't that far away from the border. I think the best thing you can do, Lynda, is to try the models out in store and see which you are most comfortable with.

Just remember it is not the mouth (or in this case the fingers) it comes out of, but the ears it goes into Jonathan, so that says a lot about David! Tongue

And there's a lot to be said about David! Big Grin

Thanks for the advice, everyone. It's a good idea to try them out first - though it will be hard to recreate conditions of use (i.e. lying on one's side whilst holding product one-handed) in Argos, Tesco, or wherever!  It may be the only way I ever hit the headlines. Wink

If anyone is considering the new basic Kindle, I'd check out the reviews first. It sounds like it's actually a significant downgrade from the Kindle 4.
