I got a Kindle Paperwhite for Christmas from my girlfriends dad, which is a massive upgrade on my 5(6?) year old kindle gen fucking 0.

So your Kindle Paperwhite superseded your Kindle Paperweight?

My phone has become big enough that small tablets and ereaders are unnecessary.


Only unnecessary if the battery life isn't a worry, and you don't mind reading off an LED screen.

I can't go back from the kindle's e-ink type, and the battery life with the paper white is approximately 600 years.

I tried to read academic shit on my phone (Nexus 5) and my eyes started bleeding. Granted it isn't a big screen like the Note or 6+ but it was just so brutal on my supple eye grapes.

Pretty sure LCD and E-Ink cause the same amount of eye strain in similar conditions (dark theme, display quality).


Nah man, it's the backlight which causes the eye strain. So if you're reading in ambient light the E-Ink screen won't cause as much eye strain.

Kingkiller Chronicle series by Patrick Rothfuss.

Just be warned the third (and last) book isn't out yet, and that will make you angry when you realise how good they are.
