This Kindle was bought because my original one died after 8 years. This one is very light and more compact than the previous one. It’s easy to get started by following the on screen prompts. It’s touch screen, which I didn’t know and accidentally found out, when I pressed the on button. It operates like a laptop and so is very easy to navigate. I was very happy to see all my previous books automatically moved to my new Kindle. The user guide, like the previous one, is downloaded for your information. A wonderful reading tool. Highly recommended.
