Made with a 300ppi glare-free screen, the Kindle Paperwhite offers a display bright enough to mimic the effect of reading from an actual page, without the headache-inducing glare. The built-in adjustable light shifts to accommodate the setting.
Some shoppers love the Kindle Paperwhite more than the (much pricier) Apple iPad Mini. "...First of all, the display is gorgeous," raved one delighted five-star reviewer. "I love how crisp the lettering is and how the pages actually look like real paper. There's barely any glare on the screen when held up in sunlight —a huge advantage over the iPad Mini ...."
The Paperwhite even includes Audible, so you can listen to an audiobook if you’re on the move (or just want to give your eyes a rest).
Another valued feature is the Paperwhite’s automatic power off: Close the case over the screen, and your device goes to sleep, preserving your page and battery power. So effortless.
Shoppers across the board are super-enthusiastic about this Kindle.
Says one customer: “I absolutely love my kindle. It's become such a staple in my life that I normally just tuck it into my purse no matter where I'm going. It's waterproof so I take it to the beach and on hikes without worrying that it'll get ruined. It's also great for reading in the bath. The battery life is ridiculous. Sometimes I can go like 2-3 weeks without ever having to charge it… I wish I'd bought a kindle sooner. I haven't read this much since I was in elementary school and first discovered the library.”
Let this Kindle Paperwhite sale launch a new chapter, where you boost your literary intake, enjoy summer more and lighten your load.

Isolation and the absence of family and friends have taken a toll on athletes' mental health at the Tokyo Olympics, with some struggling to cope with the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic while carrying their country's hopes on the global sports stage.After her stunning exit from the women's gymnastics team event on Tuesday, Simon Biles said she felt she had been carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders.That burden seems to have been exacerbated by a year of grief, loss and restrictions tied to the pandemic.Athletes have seen their pre-Olympic training disrupted by lockdowns and restricted access to athletic facilities.Their families and friends also can't cheer for them in the stands in Tokyo and their movements are heavily restricted.Biles - who also pulled out of an individual all-around competition on Wednesday - said quote: "Usually you hang out in the village, all that stuff… It does suck when you feel the weight of the world. There are no outlets with the amount of training that we do."Gymnast Angelina Melnikova of the Russian Olympic Committee, who beat the United States to win gold in the women's team event, said it has been “a difficult road since 2019."Other athletes have also contracted COVID-19 either before or even during the games threatening to derail their years of grueling work toward the Olympics.CARISSA MOORE: “I applaud her for putting herself first and doing what's right for her.”But amid the stress and fierce competition, athletes like U.S. Gold medalist surfer Carissa Moore are cheering Biles on for putting her mental health first.CARISSA MOORE: “That's hard to do in a world where people expect so much of you and have this idea of what success looks like. For her to take her power back, and just be like 'hey this is what's best for me, this is what success looks like for me.' That's really hard. “ USA Gymnastics said Biles is being evaluated to see if she can take part in the individual apparatus finals next week.

The leader of Belarus' embattled opposition hopes the United States and Europe will impose new sanctions on money-making government enterprises that will lead to the collapse of President Alexander Lukashenko's regime and a peaceful transition that pro-democracy supporters are preparing for because “it can happen very fast.” Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya, the main opposition challenger to Lukashenko in last August's disputed election, said the former Soviet Union very unexpectedly collapsed in six days and “the same situation can happen in Belarus and ... our task is to be mobilized.” Tsikhanouskaya returned to Washington on Wednesday to meet President Joe Biden who spoke out for pro-democracy forces in Belarus, tweeted that he was “honored to meet her,” and said “the United States stands with the people of Belarus in their quest for democracy and universal human rights.”
