I ended up getting the new signature paperwhite kindle. It was a bundle deal with wireless charger and cover during prime days. While I will miss my small Oasis, the updates and fast page turn are outstanding features. Not sure why Amazon thinks bigger is better. I’ve been reading all week and haven’t needed to charge it. Rumor is the new Oasis will have an even larger screen. Ugh.
Fraterfest is in full swing. It’s not too late to join in the fun! I have two reviews to write and plan to knock them out this afternoon. I have no intention of falling behind again. Stay Caffeinated.

I bought the Kindle Paperwhite at the last Prime days and I am enjoying it. I brought it on vacation and haven’t had to charge it yet and I love being able to read outside without issue. I am hoping to sign up for Ho Ho HO readathon, but need to check my schedule as I get home on the 29th and leave again on Nov 2nd. I hope I can though.
I’m so glad you were able to replace your Kindle quickly. I replaced my Paperwhite last year and don’t love the bigger size but that battery life is hard not to love! I hope you’ve had a great week!
I got a paperwhite several years ago and I hated it. I think because I was used to all my Kindle Fires that all the black and white bored me. It was so plain. Anyway, it’s here somewhere just sitting. How big is it? I have a large Kindle fire that my cat used to watch videos for cats on. When I read it’s just easier to do on the smaller 8 inch Kindle as I have so much arthritis is my fingers, hands and wrists. I hope you enjoy your PaperWhite.
It’s like a trade paperback but super light. I won’t use a Fire because of the distractions and for my eyes. I work on a laptop all day. So when I read I want the eInk screen.
Hmm…good point! We really don’t need an e-reader to be bigger than the average book, do we?
Tanya @ Girl Plus Books
I hope you’ll love the switch to the Paperwhite. I don’t necessarily want a bigger screen, either. If they keep making it bigger, I might as well cart around my iPad to read on.
glad you got your new Kindle ! and I am going to check out The Miniscule Mansion…. (the alliteration got to me!)
Yay on the new Kindle.
I am going to go and check out your review for the Sophie Go’s book.

I love my paperwhite! It’s such a great little device. Holds a lot of books and a long charge too. Glad you’re enjoying yours!
Shelleyrae @ Book’d Out
I’d be tempted by the new Kindle Scribe if I could afford it, I hope you enjoy your Oasis though.
Wishing you a great reading week
Hallo, Hallo everyone,
I’ll keep this short — I’m still grieving the loss of my cat and this week was more of a life update than one about reading. I haven’t been able to keep up this meme as much as I preferred this year… and there is a large gap in posts (Feb to Oct) but it is one I still love working on and hope to return to being more active with posts in the near future. Hopefully everyone else is having a happier October… I’m still sorting out my heart and working through the sorrow of losing a beloved companion in fur.
Enjoy your new Oasis.
I’m looking to enjoy #Fraterfest.
I’m behind on reviews now and will go further with #Fraterfest. Sigh.
Oh – I see a new Darynda Jones in your new books.
Have a good week and Happy Reading!
Enjoy the new kindle! I just got one for the first time – the paperwhite 11th gen!
Glad you got a new Kindle also. I just got the newest version of the Kindle Paperwhite. I have a couple of Kindle Fires, but I don’t enjoy reading on them as much, and my other Paperwhite just died this week. Was a bit of an anxious time until it came, lol.
I hope you enjoy your new kindle – I’m hoping Amazon will get over this trend to make their ereaders bigger before I need to replace mine, as I regularly need to pop mine in my handbag. Have a great week, Kimberly.
Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard
Congratulations on the new Kindle! I got the then-new Paperwhite last Christmas, and it has been a big improvement over my old one (from 2012) — faster page turns, plus the ability to dial down the blue light and go with a warmer hue in the evening and through the night, which disrupts my sleep cycle less.
Enjoy Fraterfest! I almost participated this year, but had other stuff going on that I thought would keep me from fully participating. I hope to try it next year, though!
I looked at Kindles during Prime Days too but held off buying. Need to save money until I see what I owe after my hospital stay. I hope they are on sale again in the new year.
Have a great week!
Nice new kindle! As much as you read you’ll get your money’s worth out of it soon.
Yay you got your Kindle replaced in the sale. Its been a fun start to Fraterfest.
Have a great week, Kimberly!
Jamie @ The Fantasy Princess
I have an old Kindle that I love. Maybe someday I will purchase a new one. Hope you get your reviews wrote and have a great week!
Anne - Books of My Heart
idk either. I like the fast page turn; it is very slow on my Fire so I now read Kindle on my iphone mini. Obviously small is important to me in my devices. I also got Honor N Duty.
Anne - Books of My Heart
Same on the staying caught up. I finally managed it this week.
Seems you had a good week. Happy reading and writing *smile*
Angela @ Simply Angela
I’m a sucker for the kindle fires but I do more than just reading on mine. I’m glad you like the signature, I’ve been trying to decide between that and the oasis for my mom.
Happy to hear you got your Kindle situation worked out! I love my Oasis, but it’s definitely a little heavier than my old Paperwhite
I already know that this will be my next kindle! I bought my third paper white just two years ago but it’s so very slow at uploading and refreshing it’s infuriating!
Another wonderful haul! I just pre-ordered the Kindle Scribe because for me bigger is better – I want a larger screen size for reading at home! My paperwhite will be used outside the home. I did hear the new Oasis is coming up likely the end of the month or early November so I will look at it as well as the Scribe isn’t shipping until mid-December to early January now. Have a wonderful week ahead.
Jessica @ a GREAT read
Nice! Yay for the new kindle! I sadly didn’t find anything in the Prime Days sale or whatever it was called. Since I’m not in the market for a new kindle yet I didn’t need to look at those and when I checked on a few books and other items I was debating over they were still the same prices, so on the list they stayed!
Nice new reads! Those are some new to me ones! I hope you enjoy each and every one of them!
Here’s my StS
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower 🙂
Glad that you were able to get a good deal on your new kindle! I agree about the screen size! Why?
Lover of Romance
I have heard rumors for the new oasis, I know you can trade for it but no surprise that they are doing an updated version, since the new paperwhite has features that match the oasis so I think the bigger screen is what will get ppl to get it. I know I am planning on it once it gets released but I think it depends on how bigger the screen is. . I doubt I will get the scribe because I don’t notate in fiction so it wouldn’t do much for me.
Rachel @Waves of Fiction
Yeah, I don’t think I’d want a huge Kindle. I transport mine all over the place so that would make it more difficult. I do like the thought of a wireless battery. Yay for staying ahead of reviews!
Kelly Lyn @ Lifestyle of Me
I just get annoyed that new ones come out every year. the sizes used to bother me but then things started getting smaller again, so kindle will eventually shrink again….lol
I love the look of Home for Christmas! I hope you enjoy all your new arrivals. I have 3 reviews I still need to write. I also hope to knock them out sometime today! I hope you have a great week!
A Voracious Reader
I’ve been reading on my iPad so my Paperwhite has been quite neglected. And I use my Fire for audiobooks while I’m traveling. One of these days I’ll get my shit together enough to listen at home. lol
That new kindle seems a great buy. It always amazes me how much e-readers are improving. When I bought my second Kobo (which is considered jurassic these days), I was amazed by how fast it was.
Enjoy the new Kindle! And I’m so happy it’s Fraterfest time!
I still haven’t brought myself to buy a Kindle. But I do use the Kindle app on my phone quite a bit.

New tech is always fun! Enjoy your new Kindle and have a good week!
Taylor @ Taylor Fenner’s Bookish World
Enjoy your new kindle! I’m so used to reading on my phone it’s weird to see how big the words are when I read on my iPad. I’m enjoying Fraterfest so far! I accidentally read the end of my 543 page door stopper yesterday already 😆
That sounds like a nice Kindle. I might have to upgrade at some point. I;m still using my old Paperwhite. I wanted to do Fraterfest but I’ve been so busy I’m hardly reading. Definitely want to do the HoHoHo RAT though.
Happy reading Kimba!!
I may have to check out the Kindle signature
Enjoy your new Kindle! Have a great week.
