Exactly. If I had data on a tablet I could do flipboard and email etc. But I would never use 3G on a paperwhite to get books...unless they were books I had fixed and uploaded to the cloud....that might work. I have bought quite a few books from Amazon that had serious formatting issues. I don't trust them. If I was going out of the country, as you suggest, I would just put 1000 books on it, and that would be plenty. No 3G needed.
