I am ten and got a kindle paperwhite as a treat for myself - with my money! my kindle is amazing, I bring it into school, and all the kids in my class say wow and is that REAL which I must admit is so funny especially when I put the back light on full!
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!
hope this review was helpful. please mae my day and say it was helpful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

It took me a while to order this as I was initially a little concerned that I might not like the shift from “real” paper books to the Kindle Paperwhite. As it turns out I’m happy with the decision to purchase the device.
Pros:
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).
Cons:
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).

Being a person who loves to read, I was very hesitant to purchase a Kindle. I like the "feel of a book", the notations and underlining passages that have great significance. Family members were raving about their Kindles, but no, I was stuck, and said, "I like my BOOKS". I had been thinking about this for a very long time, and finally thought, with hesitation, OK, I guess I will try this. I am now the biggest fan of KINDLE that I have yet to meet. The ease of use, the selections available, the comfortable feeling of this magnificent creation in my hands, the uncertainty of "which book do I take on vacation" because we can't fill the suitcase with too many books, no longer exists. The Kindle has given me an even bigger appreciation for the wealth of knowledge, entertainment, understanding and growth that the written word provides. It is an amazing gift of technology which enables us to obtain books with a simplicity that is extraordinary. I am very, very happy.

Ok so first impressions. I love the anti glare screen on the Paper White although I'm a little disappointed that I had to physically go into my Amazon account on my HD and re send some of my favourite books, as they werent even on my cloud on the Paper White. God knows how many others are not there as its only showing 742 books and I know I gots a hellova lot more than that on Amazon. (I kinda almost wet myself with fear at that point) I don't mind buying books, but not when some of my all time favourites are nearly £6 a pop.
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!!!
