I'm late to the party, as usual, but thought I'd chime in. I have just a plain old Kindle -- not the earliest, but a couple of years old. I'd have to go to the Amazon website to tell you which version it is. Anyhow, the two most important features to me were that it is only for reading, and that it is not backlit. I spend way too much time on my laptop and android phone as it is, and at this point I think I have full blown ADHD from jumping around so much, ha ha. I love that when I am reading on my Kindle, when I get the itch to check my e-mail or go to a website I can't just easily give into the temptation. Well, not without getting out of my comfy chair, at any rate. I also wanted to be able to read it outside on nice warm sunny days, and wanted a screen that's just like reading on paper. It doesn't bother me that it's not backlit. If necessary I just use a lamp -- like with a book! I'm not even sure I know the difference between this one and the paperwhite, but I hope you get it, Tammy!
