Monday Obsessions: Death of a Kindle

Now, I know we have already professed our undying love for the Kindle (Amazon why are you SO genius?) -- but we had to have a funeral for The Housewife's this week.  She dropped it and totally broke it. Something about those pixels not working anymore.  So, since her Kindle is basically a total loss and needs replacement we started cruising all those new fangled models that are out. 

The Housewife and I are kinda leaning towards this one: 

One thing we liked about this one is that the light illuminates inward, rather than a backlight that shines in yours eyes.  It actually kind of makes me want to trade in my Kindle right now.  Except it's not broken.  And I'm poor.  It also claims badass resolution and a battery life of 8 weeks. But we all know how awesome battery life on frequently used electronics goes after a year or so.  Guess we will see what the reviews are.  Paperwhite isn't released until October 1st but it appears they are backordered until the 21st right now.   But someone buy one and let us know what you think of it because we may be putting one on our Christmas Lists. 

The Kindle Paperwhite with special offers retails for $119 {no 3G either}. Not too bad when you think of how much I paid for mine and I don't have even have a light on it.  

Happy Reading!

Love you. Mean it.
