(Note: if that is all the time you devote to reading, do NOT buy a Kindle).

And actually, that is the core strength of the Kindle, which pretty much remains intact on the new model. It gives you access to the Kindle Store, which is open round the clock, allows you download free samples of books and of course, books themselves: share excerpts with others on social networks; mark out highlights and check word meanings and the like even while reading. No, the touch is not as sensitive and speedy as it is on Android and iOS devices but is decent enough when it comes to page turns. Get into the typing zone, however, and the lags start to creep in. Honestly, the All New Kindle is also a notch slower than the Paperwhite and the Oasis.
