Paperwhite: Blurry Letters on Page Turns

Haven't been able to find this on forum search or Google search. This is the first Kindle I've owned so I would like to know if it is normal, a PW thing or what.

Every time I turn a page I see the letters move and blur. Does anyone else see this, and if so, does it bother you or is it something you get used to?

I keep all my Kindles on refresh after ever page. This way you don't have that effect that every 6 pages refresh and it gives it a cleaner screen.

Thanks, Blossom. I didn't realize that was the same thing as the ghosting people were referring to. That does help to have it refresh on every page.

Yeah it's part of the ghosting. I hear it's bad on the PW but not too bad on the K4.

I have enough problems with letters and words moving and dancing without my Kindle actually moving them for me so it's the first thing I change when I get a new Kindle.

LOL. It is so different from reading on the Fire or the Kindle apps that I was really taken aback by it. Almost made me feel carsick.
