    • How does this compare to current gen Kindle Paperwhite? Especially since Kindle also has build in light now.

      Paperwhite is better
      8gb vs 4gb and 300ppi vs 167ppi

      If you're reading comics, 300 ppi is the way to go.

      I just upgraded from a lower ppi to 300 (on kobo ...) and found the text is much more crips.

      My go to sleep buddy at night. Reading on the phone wakes me up, reading the kindle is so smoothing to the eye it puts me to sleep.

      My error, I checked and I paid the same price as now. Thanks for the feedback.

    • I don't a whole lot of experience with e-readers but just commenting that people should get one. The experience is so so much better than reading on a phone/laptop.

      One of my goals during the pandemic was to read more and watch less TV and my kobo clara HD has been getting a lot of use. I went with Kobo because it integrates with local library to borrow books for free.

      Long time ago I purchased a kindle with the idea of reading PDF books with electrical drawings but the view on the screen was not proper, all the text and images where misaligned or wrong size. Have they fixed the PDF issues on e-readers?

    • You can get the Clara for 30% off $109.99 when they go on sale with a Shoppers Drug Mart point offer. The library support is a godsend.

    • I use a Chromebook with .ePub files I want to upload to the Kindle. Just did a quick Google search and doesn't seem straight forward. Any helpful info would be awesome.

      I almost hit go on this Kindle as a gift, but that is the biggest problem I find with Kindle, they don't play nicely with Cloud Library etc.

      The biggest benefit is you don't get email, Facebook notifications , so you can actually focus on reading

    • My view: 167 PPI screen in Kindle is fine. Same as 300 PPI in more expensive kindles (to my 30 year old eyes, from a normal reading distance). I can only tell the difference with very close inspection. Not like on a cell phone where the difference is more obvious.

      So I wouldn’t pay extra for the paperwhite’s screen resolution

      I would pay extra for the Kobo Clara/Libra’s adjustable front light color temperature (can make it more yellow like the night shift feature on your phone). If you don’t care about that, or overdrive library access on the kindle, this is a great price

    • The Paperwhite is also waterproof and has a flush screen and bezel.

      Thanks for this! My mom is looking to upgrade from a very old Kobo Touch and I have a Paperwhite I love, but wasn't sure of the difference. She definitely won't be reading comics, but I think the Paperwhite is still a better option.

    • Do any of these eReaders render technical books properly or are they still limited to non-STEM books?

      One reason I got the fire 8 tablet a while back was because it renders all the books well but it's no eReader.

      When you register your kindle to your amazon account, you get a dedicated kindle/ereader email address [address @ kindle. com].

      If you rename your drm-free epubs to .png or .jpg, extension instead of epub, you can email those to your kindle address. Amazon will automatically convert it for you, and send it to your device. Works well if you don't need to add a lot of ebooks on your device at one time.

      You can also convert in Calibre if you have a windows/mac computer.
