Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Review

Last updated on November 11th, 2020 at 01:37 am

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.
