Paperwhite looks far better with little or no device lighting, and is readable much like a book. It keeps state in an interesting way - when you suspend it, the ads look like a newspaper or magazine and seem to use no battery power - mine will sit for weeks with no notable battery loss until I power it on. By this token, it is also likely to last on a battery longer. It is a fairly unique feature for a handful of e-readers and doesn't lead to eyestrain. Closest thing to a book I have used.

This was on sale for $80 in October. Not knocking the deal, just for a reference point. Bought one then; this is also a good price.

Quote from Hyrax
:
How bad are the ads? Is it a banner ad while you are reading? Is it an ad that appears when you flip a page like when you read a magazine or newspaper?
You only see them during the Lock Screen when the Kindle is asleep, and I think maybe a banner while navigating your library - never while reading.

Like others have said, getting rid of them is fairly easy.

Why are people bothering trying to remove ads. You barely notice them. I'd literally not pay $1 to remove them
When you remove the ads you no longer have to swipe to read. I use a magnetic case so all i do is open my cover and i can start reading. I wouldn't care about the ads if they would go away automatically like the wallpaper

Anyone know the difference between this one and the 2017 one? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...UTF8&psc=1

Or the current "regular" Kindle for $59?

I have a original paperwhite with ads and use a magnetic case and don't have to swipe. I just open the case and it starts back up where i left off.

They must have changed it. On the 2018 version you have to swipe to unlock.

Is there a profile where two people can read different books?
Or maybe at least remember the last page of more than one book?

Get one with a built in hand strap!! It's amazing. The cover folds around and clicks in place via magnet. Then you have a nice pop out hand strap to hold on back of unit while reading in any position
