any way, the back light is amazing and if you keep it on all the time the battery lasts for about a week which is amazing. with the backlight off and occasionally on the battery lasts for about 6 weeks which is exceptanal. but it DOESNT last for what 8 weeks. good luck amazon on that though!

Easy to carry around (slightly smaller than your average paperback (height and width), with a depth approximately the same as your average smartphone. Very light (I think my phone is heavier than the Paperwhite).
I charge the device overnight (only when required) and this hasn’t been required often (so far I’ve read approx. 10 books and have charged it twice). I use my phone charger for this and that works fine.
Came with my Amazon account information pre-populated, so ordering new books is easy.
Font size is easily changed, and the range of options here is quite good (even if you need really big letters, you won’t have a problem).
Backlight is great, and easily adjusted (Can read in direct sunlight without any problems, and can also read in complete darkness (while others are asleep), this for me is a big plus.
Download of a new book takes seconds, and is instantly accessible (for those of us who live quite far from a physical book outlet this is a big advantage).
With the accessibility of the books being so easy, I have found myself purchasing books because I can, without really thinking too hard about it. This experience isn’t quite the same as going to the local books store and browsing title for a while before selecting what you want, it’s a little more clinical (not sure why, but that’s how I feel about it).Read more ›
The Paper White is pretty easy to use, I love the fact the library is the home screen and the battery life can live up to a month without having to recharge.
Although I don't use the Internet a lot on my hd, I still like having it there. (Quick skims through Facebook and Goodreads etc) so for that reason there is no comparison between the hd and paper white as they are both fit for different purposes.
The paper white is so light and easy to hold I can see my self impressed with how easy it will be to tuck into my purse for when I walk the dogs or take the kiddies to the park and also be able to tuck it under my pillow for later night reads, without disturbing my OH or blinding myself.
So, if anyone is looking at buying the Paper White for JUST reading, no interruptions from games or email alerts the Paper white is perfect. For all the other needs I would reccommend going or keeping with the HD. I just find the HD bulky for when I want to go outside, and if I'm on the beach or in the sun its a complete disaster. So this summer I will be mostly using my Paper White and iPhone!!!
