THINGS THAT DON’T SUCK: So I’ve had the Kindle Paperwhite for several months now, and it’s clearly replaced the iPad as my favorite device for reading Kindle books. The backlighting is the key. It’s light, battery lasts a long time (longer than the iPad) it charges quickly (faster than the iPad) and it’s very clear and easy to read in all kinds of light, from bright sunshine to a dark room. And of course, it’s much, much cheaper.
