Which one should I sell?

I've got a Sony 350 in a lighted case, a K4 in a slipcover case, and my beloved K3. I'm seriously thinking about a Paperwhite (I've seen one, and can live with the shadows along the bottom of the screen). The one I saw didn't have the color blooms, and compared to it, my K3 just looked... dirty. I've got a small freelance gig that will pay me enough (probably just barely) to get the PW+3G-SO and the nifty Amazon case that turns it on when you open the case.

I have a friend who would like to buy my Sony350, but I'm not sure I want to sell it. I *think* I'd like to keep one native epub reader, although I can't think why, because I use Calibre and The Tools, so conversion isn't an issue.

My husband and son both have k4s. I got the extra K4 because I got it at a good deal and my daughter might want one someday - although I don't know for sure, because she's an artist and is into books as art forms as much as she is into reading them. Still, some day she may decide she wants to try it.

I think I may want to keep the K3, because I can use Calibre to set up collections in it, and there doesn't seem to be a way to automate collections on the PW, nor are there plans for somebody to figure out how to do that - and I adore the Kindle Collections plugin for my k3.

But I can't really justify having the 350, a k4, AND a k3 as extra ereaders. But I really don't know which one I should sell.

The K4 is the device that the PW is probably the most direct replacement for. Keeping things because someone may "some day" want it seems unwise; this is a rapidly changing market, and "some day" may never happen. If your daughter wants to look at a K4 she is presumably capable of going to a store and looking at one for herself .

I agree with Harry that the K4 is probably the one to sell. It's the one made most redundant IMO.

That makes sense. The K4 goes. Thanks!

Also, the K4B is much improved over the K4S, so even if she may want one later, she could buy the K4B and thus get a better device.

I'm pretty sure the one we have is either black or dark gray. It's definitely not silver.

Silver is the way some MR users reference it. It's last year's model, versus this year's black one.

If it's last year model. I would sell it. This year's model has improved contrast and lighter background. I can't sell mine due to the stains on back and poor contrast but I have the this year's model which I am in totally in love with, My K3 which I just compenscated back from Hubby and my Kindle Fire.

I have plans to get either KFHD or PW soon. My K4S will just sit around.

The PW made my Touch redundant, so I gave it away. I'm keeping my K3, I have instances where the buttons are preferable to a touch screen.
