    I went through three of em and the wife two.
    They lasted on average about a year and either the plug connection failed or it just stopped working.

    I'm all about the Kindle paper whites reliability and battery life.

    When this one dies, I'll check it out. I don't like the Fire I have as it's really slow with the Internet and downloading books, but reading is all I use it for and it was only 50 bucks. So good for now. I still have the Kindle but the battery is worthless.

    I'll admit I've gone through several kindles myself.
    But it's been due to idiocy on my part,dropped in the pool,the hot tub or dropped overboard on vacation.

    Just finished Endurance and am about 30% into Two years before the mast. Right after the flogging.
    I apparently read Endurance sometime in my distant past because I remembered certain parts.
    Plan on reading The Hearts of the Sea next on OldLady recommendation.
