Solution: only read the recommended 30 minutes per day. And read sloooooooooower. Problem with storage solved. Or, reread once you are through.

I got my cover on evilbay!
2 covers for $11 (one hard cover with stand for $4,50, and one immitation leather cover (looking like a book), with touch pen for $6,50).

Forget about paying $30-$40 for a cover!
Evilbay has it for 1/4th the price!

When you're reading PDF's the filesize goes up significantly when having pics in them.
I've seen PDF's of 200+ MB's; largest PDF was around 1GB, some kind of reference PDF or usermanual with parts manual for a device.

But hey, most PDF's are between 2 and 8MB. That's still 10x more than ebooks.

As long as you remember you read about it. I am glad you like it ad-free better. This also tells me that I made the right decision to order my Paperwhites ad-free directly from Amazon.

Just wanted to chime in about how much I love my Paperwhite too. The slight shadows cast by the LED lights are hardly noticeable. Initially I found the Paperwhite slippery to hold when lying down and went through the trouble of a getting "carbon fibre" sticker for the back and also a silicone case meant for the Touch. Neither survived a few minutes of use and I have since adjusted the way I hold the device. Another issue which bothered me was inconsistent display of fonts: some were more bold than others, but changing the page refresh to every page solved that.

The Paperwhite is nearly the perfect ereader, especially with my custom screensavers and fonts. I would really like to incrementally adjust the font size and margins instead of being stuck to the current few settings.

Sounds like you already jailbroke the PW. Ixtab is working on making JBPatch compatible with PW. The hyphenation part and the custom font sizes are already working. He posted somewhere that he will work on the part with custom margins next.

I definitely agree with you on the Paperwhite's ease of use. Is there a thread that explains how to get custom fonts on the Paperwhite? I know how to jailbreak it, but I'm confused where to go from there.

Look at this http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...23#post2353723 - there is some debate weather or not you need to have it jailbroken or not for it to work on 5.3.1. It might work without a Jailbreak (it should). But then again you are not against doing a jailbreak either (the new one ixtab made all up to 5.3.0 and 5.3.1 is simple enough).

I think ttf and otf. It is recommended to have 4 versions of the same font - regular, bold, italic, bold-italic, but you can use fonts that only have part of those.

You still have to swipe it don't you?

Do you have the little ad at the bottom anymore then? I hate that.

No, I never had the Special Offers. I ordered my Paperwhites ad-free. No swiping or tapping, no ad on bottom of homepage.

One of my favorite features of the Paperwhite is an unadvertised one...no more filtering out Audible results from Kindle Store searches. I assume this has everything to do with not having speakers and as far as I know, the K4 is the same way. What an upgrade this hardware downgrade makes!

As far as the rest, having a light to read by was what led to a brief flirtation and subsequent return of a Nook Glowlight. The devices really are worlds apart and those couple of days with the Nook make me appreciate the Paperwhite all the more.
