Hey, Dimers
I just wanted to know how many of you have KINDLE and which model or generation. I've been using it since 2013 and still use it, works perfectly. And please let me know if you like online book reading (Kindle or mobile app). Or traditional (hardcover or paperback)

I've kindle paperwhite 10th Gen, using it since 2019. Working flawlessly. I read both on kindle as well as physical books (mostly non-fiction HBs) along with audible.

As a product it is good, I bought one some years ago but gave it away to a friend after realizing this,

1) There wasn't enough time for me to read books.

2)  After a year, I didn't remember anything I had read. I decided to focus solely on gathering information for day-to-day life and avoid unnecessary data that occupied memory storage in the brain.

I have two Kindles:

  • 7th Gen Kindle Paperwhite (Purchased 2015)
  • 11th Gen Kindle Paperwhite Signature (Purchased 2023)

Both of my kindles are working fine

I also have a huge ebook library maintained on Calibre. I am an avid reader who reads more than 100 books each year. While i prefer real books, reading ebooks is economical.

PS: I always run my kindle in airplane mode.

Edit: I forgot to add this: 
Paperwhite & normal Kindle has been unavailable for past few months(5+ months) (Most likely due to supply chain issues) Oasis is still available though

This is one of the main reasons people are not reading books or are likely to read less.

I would say if you know anyone who's interested in book reading then you should give it.

first came across e-ink products about 16-17 years back.

first used a kindle over a decade back.

except for in moving trains, flights, on road vehicles (where zooming might1 help), I prefer reading off of paper.
even getting news off of the screen is a compulsion and not a choice.

first owned or rather got kindle during some work/project in 2014.
but later got myself the kindle voyage (f2014). kept using it for a couple of years, till i gave it away to a student.

P.S.: when i first saw the e-ink display with my own eyes and how paper like it felt, plus no eye strain or energy consumption if the display does not have to refresh, I felt like all youngsters should never have to be put through LCD and LED displays, during their formative years, even if it means sacrificing on many types of content. back then, colour or even basic 4-5 colours was a only a science fiction type dream for e-ink products.

I had the Kindle 7th gen paperwhite. I got that in 2018, while I'm in college. I remember there were flood of OLX ads for sealed Kindles. So back then Sony offered kindles as a gift during Diwali for TVs. I got a sealed one for >60% discount. 

And in 2022, I got the 11th gen Kindle Paperwhite. I absolutely love Kindle. It helps me read ton of books. I export those notes and store in Notion. Reading books was a great hobby, I'm really glad that somehow I was interested in it.

My Kindle Paperwhite 3, 7th generation purchased in Q4 2019 is still working pretty good. Only 47 battery cycles in close to 5 years(some folks have racked up 700-900 cycles over several years) as it's battery life is superb (newer Kindles are even better in this regard and significantly so). Although that's  more a consequence of devoting far less time to reading than earlier. Till 2016 I used to average 250+ novels a year. In the last few years less than 100. Movies and TV Shows have displaced books as my numero uno choice of entertainment. Take up a lot more of my time especially after I (reluctantly at first) started watching non-English media.
