Awaiting the Paperwhite

As an avid reader and self-described bookworm, waiting for my backordered Kindle Paperwhite was an exercise in tremendous patience. When it finally arrived, I could not have been more excited! The reviews for the Paperwhite have been overwhelmingly positive and one critic even dubbed it the best e-reader to date. That’s high praise coming from the typically-snarky, tech review world.

The Paperwhite is Delivered

The box showed up in my delivery room a few days ago and I took a dozen pictures to show everyone how Amazon packages the device and the undeniable ease of setting everything up. From the moment it arrived to the moment I started on the first chapter of a freshly downloaded book, I’d say it took about ten minutes start to finish (including the overzealous photo session that took place before I even plugged it in to charge).

Here’s what the original packaging looked like. Simple, nice, not too flashy.


A pic of the e-reader nestled in its box. Zero wasted space. Streamlined design. Small card tucked in a visible location for set-up instructions that were pretty self-explanatory. In a good way. Then, out of the box it comes! Paperwhite is TINY. So cute!


Next step was charging the Paperwhite. The cord is the same as previous Kindles so you can either plug in the one that comes with this device or use your old one. Simple enough.

Finally, the Kindle is charged and ready to start up! It welcomes me to the Paperwhite universe. I’m happy to be here.


Initial Reaction to the Paperwhite

It’s been a little over a week now and I’ve done a fair amount of reading on my new tablet. So far, it seems like the perfect e-reader. I have no complaints.

I’m pretty easy to please so I can’t imagine anything major upsetting me if it hasn’t already, but if the battery life turns out to be lame, or the screen cracks in my purse, I’d be pretty annoyed.

Stay tuned for a thorough overview of the device and any gripes I find in the next few days.
