ETA: Found a dead pixel or something 30 minutes after I blogged about this . . . Looks like I’m returning this. Tomoko was not meant to be with me! :(
Guess who decided to get the new 2nd gen Kindle Paperwhite? /o
I couldn’t resist. It’s been something I’ve been thinking about since a couple of weeks ago when I saw them at the PX. I couldn’t really justify getting the new one because my 1st gen Paperwhite works fine, but I still wanted it just because it’s a newer model and the screen looks so much better. My co-worker finally said to me “It’s okay to upgrade. You don’t have kids. And consider this to be like your super early graduation gift to yourself.” Luckily, I already have two people who wants to buy my old one for $40, so that makes me feel better about this purchase. And oh, wow, the screen is so much brighter and better. No idea if it’s faster yet, but I imagine the page turn speed won’t really make a difference to me. But the screen, the screen is so amazing! asdfjkl;asdfjkl;
Anyway, I named it to “Tomoko”, which follows the trend of naming my Kindle devices with Japanese name :D I love it so far. Just whee! Too bad grad school is already sucking up my life, though. That certainly cuts into my reading time! Just gotta look forward to April!
