The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is a bestselling 2015 e-reader that received positive reviews for its high-resolution screen, comfortable design, built-in light, long lasting battery and access to the best-in-class Amazon ebooks ecosystem. However, the screen upgrade is insignificant, the package doesn’t include a dedicated charger and the users will be limited to Amazon’s library. While not a major upgrade over the previous version, the Kindle Paperwhite 2015 has features that enhance the reading experience of any voracious reader.
