It is difficult enough trying to limit your carry on to the airline's weight limit without trying to squeeze a bunch of books in there. Although there are still many fine reasons to buy physical copies to have and to hold at home, it’s just inconvenient to take them on a trip with you. Why would you when you could bring an Amazon Kindle capable of storing thousands of books to browse on the beach or in a cafe with you in a portable hand sized e-reader?
An Amazon Kindle is slimmer than even the tiniest of paperbacks with Amazon Paperwhite 4 just being 0.82cm thick and even the “heaviest” Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 3 just weighs 205g, with ebooks themselves weighing nothing at all. Furthermore, you do not have to worry about running out of juice while reading. An Amazon Kindle such as Amazon Basic Kindle, Amazon Kindle Oasis, Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 4 and Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 3 can fully last up to 5 days per full charge.
It is every readers’ dream to spend your vacation relaxing by the poolside or beach, reading one good book after another.

Fortunately, if you are thinking of fulfilling that fantasy, it is now possible with Kindle Oasis and the latest more affordable Kindle Paperwhite 4.
