I FINALLY bought a Kindle Paperwhite, and I got the BEST case for it, and I am VERY happy. My poor Samsung tablet was dying and couldn’t make the long plane trips anymore, and every time I got unlucky and got a seat without an outlet (like on 7 out of the last 8 flights I’ve taken), it died on me midflight. I was packing backup physical books in my carry-on to make sure I wouldn’t be left without reading material, and you know? That stuff gets heavy.
Now I have a Paperwhite (so does John), and I’m a happy camper.
