My old Kindle served me well, but the battery life has been dwindling alarmingly (2 hours of reading in wireless mode uses up more than half of the battery now). I loved it, but I knew its days were numbered, so I took advantage of Amazon's One-Day discount in honor of the FAA allowing hand-held devices to stay on during takeoff and landing (in apirplane mode)... Saved me $34, and arrived very quickly.
The interface is a little different from my original Kindle Fire, but nothing I can't get the hang of pretty quickly.
And it plays Candy Crush!
It's a snazzy little beast!
