I had done a search and only turn up topics from 2012. So...here's the story. I've got a Kindle 3 eReader that I've had since 2011 which seems to be on it's last legs. I want to get a new ~something~ but I am not sure what. Price point is not a huge consideration. When I travel to Europe I have been taking my Kindle, my Android phone for wifi functions and to communicate when I am in the US, an MP3 player for audio books and paper guidebooks and maps. I don't need GPS or any kind of mapping functions and I would not be watching movies. I am not particularly technologically ept although I am not inept either, lol. I do have knowledge deficit!
I've looked at the basic Kindle, the Kindle Paperwhite and the Kindle Fire online seeing good and awful reviews for all. My SIL has an iPad but I'm not sold on it and vaguely have noticed other tablets when I cruise by the display at Costco. I have hundreds of books in my Kindle library so need to be able to use that platform.
Any advice for what I should be looking at? Good/bad experiences with Kindle Fire or Paperwhite? Should I jump to an iPad or another tablet?
Thanks for any forthcoming advice!
