Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Review

It feels like a lifetime ago, but once, reading was all I did.

Orson Scott Card’s Enderverse. Piers Anthony’s Xanth series. Even when the Harry Potter books were on the rise, I could devour pages by the hundreds in a matter of days.

But life’s changed a lot in the last decade. I’ve got two kids now. Responsibilities on all fronts. Heck—even when I do have free time, I’m working on things to improve every other part of my life!

The sad truth is that despite an ever-growing book collection, the only ones I find time to read these days involve Curious George and the Berenstain Bears for my sons’ bedtimes.

But perhaps part of the problem is how I approach reading.

For better or worse, my life involves a ton of multi-tasking. I write posts with Netflix playing on my second monitor, passively keeping up with the world while I work. Or do chores to my tunes to avoid getting distracted. The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite boasts features like a glare-free 300 ppi display that reads like a printed page—even in bright sunlight—and a battery that last weeks, not hours, but perhaps the best feature it has for me is that it just reads books.

AUKEY 30000mAh Power Bank | Preventing Phone Paralysis!

I don’t know about y’all, but I’m pretty sure there’s no phone currently known to humankind that can withstand a day in my life.

Prevent that Phone Paralysis with the AUKEY 30000mAh Power Bank! — My Lenovo Moto Z

No matter how large the battery your smartphone boasts (and trust me—when the Asian market rocks devices with batteries as big as 10,000 mAh, you do not know large batteries), there’s only so much it can pull off in a day. Between managing three social media channels, four mobile games, and the tools to manage my #BloggerLife, my power often goes from 100 to 0 real quick. Even with my Lenovo Moto Z’s Incipio Battery Pack Moto Mod (2600 mAh for the phone + 2200 mAh for the Mod), it only keeps me covered by a slim margin… which is why I invest in a new battery pack whenever I get a new phone!

And the latest one to join the family? The AUKEY 30000 mAh Quick Charger 3.0 Power Bank with a 20cm USB-A to USB-C Charging Cable!

Prevent that Phone Paralysis with the AUKEY 30000mAh Power Bank! — AUKEY PB-T11 Solo ShotThis wasn’t my first rodeo with the gang at AUKEY—I’d already got my hands on the AUKEY 20000 mAh power back in May 2015, and knew I could get several solid charges from it when on the go. The 20000 mAh was good, but the 30000 mAh model is a beast.
