5.0 out of 5 stars Obsessed.
By sanso mountain on 26 April 2019
I have loved my 2nd generation kindle for 10 years and never found a reason to upgrade until amazon sneakily sent me an email announcing the all new 10th generation paper white which is now WATERPROOF, has a built in light (you can also still use it without the light turned on) and is smaller and lighter. I am doing some long distance hiking so those new features were magic words and I went out and upgraded that same day. I wondered if I was going to bond (lol) with it like my other one and within minutes I was truly obsessed with it. It is perfection. I am so happy. I am unable to fault it in any way and I am very fussy when it comes to build quality and tech specs. Love love love it!! One thing I had trouble finding online when I was making my (rather spontaneous and quick) decision to upgrade, was pictures of it in comparison to the 2nd gen. So, for anyone else who may want to see a size comparison I have added a photo here.
