4.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Paperwhite for Dummies. 7 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Like it's namesake, the Kindle Paperwhite per-se, the 'Dummies' guide book is well worth the money. Similar in size as the Paperwhite, thus easy to handle; well-indexed, readable; need I say more? Oh, before I forget, it was delivered more or less immediately.

5.0 out of 5 stars Making sense of Kindle Paperwhite 14 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I finally decided it would be good to have more than the basic instructions for my new Kindle Paperwhite. I have bought books from the Dummies range before, and not been disappointed. Some are hilarious. This one not, but very comprehensive, really useful in ironing out the little niggles, and well indexed. Probably a good idea to buy one when you buy the Kindle!
