Hey everyone

I have no experience with owning ereaders. I'm mainly searching to buy an ereader because I board cheap domestic Jetstar flights. They're a good value airline but strict on the baggage weights.

I thought that iPads would be a good idea however there are notifications and other distractions kicking around the screen and taking away from the story.

So far I like the look and feel of the Kindle. What are your experiences with these devices?

My choice is the Kindle paper white with the backlight. It’s a popular ereader with regular ongoing updates & a large selection of books.

iPads are too heavy to hold for long periods of time while reading and the battery life isn’t as travel friendly as it could be.

You can always turn off iPad notifications in settings. I'd buy an iPad becuase it doubles as a tablet... which will weigh less than carrying a separate tablet, ereader and laptop computer.

Have you ever fallen asleep while using an ipad and had it hit your face?

oh the pain

Thanks dude. I've taken time to think it over. My last ipad broke.
Tbh my mind's now set on the Kindle paperwhite because it's solely dedicated to books. I tried the paperwhite in store and am shocked by how simple the interface really is. Exactly what I'm after.

Now I have to decide whether to buy the 8 or 32GB. 8GB doesn't sounds like much memory at all.

Go for 32GB. Nothing worse than buying a unit with not enough memory.
