Are you an avid reader?
I used to be before the advent of the VCR/DVR and Netflix. We don't have cable.
It's heavier and little bit bigger but not by much. It feels solid and I like that. The Paperwhite is front lit comes with a much nicer interface with book covers! You can have custom fonts on it which makes it perfect for me. The difference in screen is like night and day. The Paperwhite screen is so much nicer. It has a higher resolution than the K4.
I read about 110 books a year since I got my Kindle. Reading is pretty much all I do. I don't watch TV though we also have Netflix and channels like that on Roku. We ditched cable last year.
