1.0 out of 5 stars Faulty battery
By lyndakeen on 8 October 2018
I bought an 8th generation Kindle. After some months, the battery died and would not recharge. It was under warranty so Amazon replaced it. After some months, exactly the same thing has happened to the replacement Kindle. Amazon refuse to refund or replace. Why? Because the warranty on the ORIGINAL faulty Kindle has expired: they treat the warranty on the replacement as if it were the warranty on the original. There is obviously a fault with the batteries on this model but Amazon will not take responsibility; they prefer to cheat the customer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every bookworm needs one.
By evarissabella on 10 April 2018
So it’s not as magical as having a new paper book to hold onto, but kindles are so practical, it’s difficult not to love them.
It’s lightweight, fits in my bag perfectly, and I love the matt white finish.
