Yep, got one for other half recently, and it seems indistinguishable from a new one. I thought the “offers” might be irritating, but they just replace the normal “turned off” images, so not at all intrusive

Does this read to you or do you have to get an older one for that? I have a really old non touch screen one that reads to me but I believe they stopped that due to pressure from publishers I guess to sell more audio books!

Tempted, but we've had two Paperwhite's go faulty, and we've only had two. So 100% failure rate. Amazon weren't interested as they were over a year old. Google 'Kindle Screen Freezing' and it's a very common problem, though Amazon tried to deny that they are problematic at all. So we've resorted back to our Sony PRS-650's, that have been going strong for years and years. (Never thought I'd be praising Sony!)

I've had one of these for years and the battery lasts for ages. You can turn the screen light off and still read the text if you have some ambient light. Little tip, load all your books on to this via usb or the amazon site and then turn off wi-fi. The adverts will then magically disappear after a while. I use Calibre for managing my E-book collection, it's awesome.
