I really love my Kindle. I also had the original. I like the keyboard feature and the "3G". I've been considering upgrading to the new paperwhite but I'm still not sure I want to loose those features. I would like like small pictures of the book covers to show up on the home page. Battery life is very good even after being a few years old. I can load documents on it to read and bring with me everywhere, It's great for school.
