If compact size is important for you then this Kindle is the one to get. Also consider getting the Ads supported version – the ads aren’t obtrusive and the Kindle price is $30 cheaper. The low price point of the Kindle, combined with its very light and compact form, also makes it a candidate for the first eReader for kids and adults alike. Just make sure that you get a good quality Kindle cover or case for it. A Kindle cover will also make it more comfortable to hold the device when reading, but will not provide as much protection as fully enclosing it in a Kindle case. Read Kindle Reader Review.
