I bit the bullet and bought one without the special offers.I do not want ads intruding my Kindle experience, even if they only show as the screensaver or on a bar across the bottom of the Home screen.
The small, quick tap of my thumb on the edge of the screen has become almost like a reflex and I don't notice it anymore; it feels natural.
I don't have children hands, but I'm a female and my hands are on the small side. Anyway, it is smaller than the Paperwhite, but I love that.
I also love the fact that it doesn't come with a light.
First of, let's start off by pointing out the obvious, it's under 0. Before you order, read the specs and compare it to the other Kindles.
Yes, the specs say it doesn't have backlighting so honestly, there shouldn't be one ounce of surprise when you receive this. I have had the new Kindle Paperwhite and I really didn't like how big it was to hold in my small hands.
