Pros Lightweight, perfect for carrying in most ladies purses and certainly easy for long distance travel reading. The ability to adjust the lighting is wonderful and easy. It's great....
Cons No adapter for charging unless it is plugged into another USB port. Bomber!!
Summary Buy one for yourself! If you're an avid reader, you'll love it.

Pros Light weight and easy on the eyes. Easy to hold and navigate with one hand.
Cons Texture of the screen is annoying. Flicker between page turns. Annoying looking icons.
Summary It's probably the best reader for people that only want a device for reading. I have both an iPad 3 and iPad mini and prefer the iPad mini over the Kindle Paperwhite and the iPad 3. If I am going to buy a device I want to be able to do multiple things on it. I'm a User Experience designer so I realize that my review is a bit nit picky but I love the iBooks highlight experience because its fast and easy verses having to drag on the content and then tap "Highlight" on the Paperwhite. If I didn't have an iPad Mini this would probably be my device of choice for reading.
Pros Easy on the eyes
Makes e-reading enjoyable
Easy to use, setup and access the Kindle store
Light weight enough to hold for long periods of reading time
Battery life is very long
Cons I really can't think of any.
Summary If you want to switch to e-books and e-reading this one is worth trying out for sure. I have no cause for complaints. It's really easy to use and setup.
The way text is displayed makes reading enjoyable. A lot better than reading from a computer screen that's for sure.
