Tool of the Week

Upgrade your ebook experience with the Kindle Paperwhite

There’s something special about reading a book in hard copy.

But they also take up a lot of space…

Which makes traveling with them trickier.

Plus when you lend a book out to a friend or family member, you tend not to get them back.

These are just a few of the reasons why we’ve become big fans of the Kindle Paperwhite.

Amazon’s ebook reader is super lightweight…

Boasts an ultra long battery life…

And comes with some great features that actually make you want to read more.

So if you’ve ever thought about trying it out…

This weekend is a great time to pick one up on sale through Black Friday-Cyber Monday.
