kindlepaperwhiteThe latest Kindle Paperwhite eReader has received early holiday pricing, and it just benefited recently from a software update that delivers Goodreads and Cloud Collections support. Goodreads is an Amazon social network application which focuses around reading and sharing your opinions about what you have read. The popular social hangout lets you rate and review book titles, share quotes and perform other reading-oriented functions.

The Kindle PaperWhite can be purchased for immediate shipment starting at just $119.

Goodreads integration with the new Kindle Paperwhite eReader is a match made in heaven, as both are geared toward the voracious reader. Also, Cloud Collections arrives with this latest software update, which lets you use free Amazon cloud storage to create customized collections of newspapers, magazines, books and applications for easy access and quick reference. Amazon includes its Whispersync technology which synchronizes your personal collections across all of your Kindle devices and reading apps.

The new Kindle Paperwhite eReader delivers an enhanced and improved paperwhite display, high-resolution, advanced contrast and a next-generation built-in light, offering free Wi-Fi access as well. Each successive generation of the Amazon Kindle eReading lineup has made advancements and improvements in paperwhite technology, designed to make reading on the eReader as close to reading a physical book as possible.

This latest Kindle Paperwhite from Amazon guarantees no screen glare in bright sunlight, and allows you to read easily with one hand, as it has been designed 30% lighter than the iPad Mini. Incredibly, a single battery charge can last up to eight weeks, based on a half hour of reading per day. The eReader is also slimmer than a pencil and lighter than a paperback, ensuring that one hand holding and reading is pain-free and comfortable, even over long sessions. Specs-wise, the Kindle Paperwhite measures just 6.7 x4.6 x 0.36 inches (169 x 117 x 9.1 mm), weighs only 7.3 ounces (206 grams), and delivers 2.0 GB of internal storage, room for 1,100+ eBooks.

The Kindle Paperwhite eReader also delivers wider screen and darker text than previous Kindle eReaders, with a 25% faster processor for quicker and easier page turns. Bookmarks, the new Page Flip skimming feature, chapter scanning and note taking and sharing features are all on board, as is an extensive and interactive feature package. The new Kindle Paperwhite has been attractively priced by Amazon for the holiday shopping season, giving you access to free book samples and free book borrowing from the Kindle Owners Lending Library, as well as the opportunity to instantly download over 1 million book titles which are priced at $4.99 or less. The Kindle PaperWhite can be purchased online for immediate shipment starting at just $119.
