I‘m curious as to what my paperwhite littens think about their paperwhite. I‘ve currently got the Voyager, which I‘ve had since it came out, and I absolutely love it!! I‘m hesitant to upgrade but I need the extra space that the paperwhite offers. (Not to mention it‘s WATERPROOF!) If y‘all could help a girl decide if she wants to upgrade, I‘d very much appreciate it! #Kindle #PaperwhiteVsVoyager #HELP

jillrhudy My Paperwhite is six years old and still does the job for me but I don‘t have a massive number of books on it. I spent $79 on the one with the backlight which is probably the equivalent of an ordinary Kindle now. 5d
Literary_Siren @jillrhudy yeah I‘m debating on the new paperwhite. I wish they would have continued to make the voyager. That would make it a super easy decision. 5d
TiredLibrarian I have a Paperwhite that I got for Christmas 2 yrs. ago. I'm pretty happy with it. The biggest issue I have is that there's a bit of uneven, wavy-looking lighting toward the bottom of the screen. It's not a big deal, but it gets annoying during long reads or in darker rooms. Two features I would LOVE to see are a dark mode (I sometimes read from my phone just for that), and a blue light filter so there's a warmer light for evening & night reading. 5d

KathyWheeler I love my Paperwhite— it‘s a year or so old. I just got the Oasis but I‘m keeping my Paperwhite too. 5d
bunny I just bought a new Paperwhite after having at Voyage for years. I like it a lot, though I do sometimes miss the buttons since the touch screen can be a little finicky and slow to respond. Overall I'm pretty happy with it though! 5d
ljuliel I had a PW , but traded it on an Oasis. The new PWs are great, but I went with the Oasis for the warm light. A bit easier on the eyes. Both are great though ! Good luck with your decision. 5d
eanderson Just bought this when they had it on a nice deal. I love the Paperwhites. This one is my 3rd one. I never experienced they Voyage so I can‘t compare. I love this one. Only complaint is the pages can turn very easily with the sensitive touch screen but it‘s not a deal breaker for me. I had the same problem with my other Paperwhites. 5d
TheSpineView I had a Paperwhite and upgraded to an Oasis. I love it and it has navigation buttons. I like that you are stuck with just a swipe. 5d
Crazeedi I love my paperwhite, but I wish I could get the newer one, has audio and waterproof, it's an excellent price right now. I got mine and just a couple weeks later they did the newer one! 5d
TiredLibrarian @ljuliel If the Oasis has a warm light setting, I'd consider upgrading to that! 5d
ljuliel @TiredLibrarian I really like the warm light. You can set it as you want, plus it has the automatic light sensor doohickey so it‘ll change the light for you when you‘re in a darker or brighter location. I turned that off , as I like it being on the same setting all the time. I also think the page turn buttons are super handy. One handed reading, plus you can switch hands and it automatically flips the screen for you so it‘ll work in either hand. 5d
DannyHattan I upgraded from an old Paperwhite to the Oasis, and I wish I just bought the latest paperwhite. It‘s the best kindle going I think 👍🏻 4d

About to start this gem finally. // I have a question though about NetGalley. Does anybody know an easy way to be able to move the ARCs that don't directly download onto kindle to my kindle? I heard there was a way to change the document and then download it onto the kindle anyways. Can anybody help me with that? I'm really struggling with reading them on my phone. #netgalley #arc #help

BookwormM I always send them to my kindle email address you have to add Netgalley as an approved email address first. 1mo
IvoryLunatic @bookwormm Even the ones that don‘t have a kindle download button? The protected PDFs? (edited) 1mo
EadieB @IvoryLunatic I use Amazon and go under Digital Content. Search for your book and then you can choose to send it to your iPad, iPhone, or computer or all 3. 1mo
IvoryLunatic @EadieB But isn‘t that just for the ones in kindle format? I‘m asking about the ones that are not in kindle format. Those don‘t get sent to my amazon account. 1mo

Can someone clear this up for me: is this book autobiographical, i.e telling the real life story of the author? Or is it just a satirical commentary on society or something?

#help #myyearofrestandrelaxation #ottessamoshfeg

8little_paws It's not the author's real life story. 3mo
Blaire Satire. 3mo

Trying to look for this prompt has my head spinning and I feel like I'm not trying hard enough. Zombies aren't for me so Dread Nation is out, I read Kindred about 20 years ago and I'm finding lots of paranormal romance which isn't going to happen! Looking for alternate suggestions for the #POCMCParanormal prompt! #Help #InSearchOfSuggestions #LibrariansOfLitsy

Bookzombie I think this would work. I‘m probably going to go with a book by Daniel José Older. 3mo
IamIamIam @Bookzombie Thanks! I've not heard of Older yet so I can take a look at the options. 😁 3mo
Hestapleton I bet this would work! 3mo

IamIamIam @Hestapleton Ooooh, good call!!! I have those on my TBR! 3mo
LibrarianRyan While it's not really a paranormal book, he is visited by ghosts which are paranormal, so I say go for it. 3mo
IamIamIam @LibrarianRyan That's what I thought. With Kindred, I didn't think time travel is really paranormal but ghosts definitely count. 3mo
4thhouseontheleft Labyrinth Lost would definitely work! I like that book, but FYI it does have a romance component. A few others are Shadowshaper, Akata Witch, and Fledgling. 3mo
IamIamIam @4thhouseontheleft Awesome suggestions!!! Thanks so much!!! I have Labyrinth Lost on hold with Libby but I'll definitely check out the others! I think I was focusing on the POC part but not really thinking of all the colors available. 😂 Also, thanks for the heads up on romance! I can handle a relationship but not a romantic focus. 🤢 I know, very tween of me... LOL 3mo
4thhouseontheleft @IamIamIam Labryinth Lost has a love triangle component. It‘s not a huge part of the plot, but it is there. 3mo
IamIamIam @Bookzombie @Hestapleton @LibrarianRyan @4thhouseontheleft I was talking to my husband about the prompt and he asked if it was just ghosts or magic also. He suggested this too... what do you guys think? We have the audio, which is a huge bonus! 3mo
mrp27 American Gods works, I was thinking about doing that one and Long Way Down certainly works, it's a fantastic read! 3mo
IamIamIam @mrp27 Excellent!!! Thanks!! 😁👌 3mo

Does anyone know how I can add a cover to this entry for the book? It doesn't have one, and it's such a stunning cover that I hate for it to not be there. I figured out how to add a cover when I create a book, but not how to do it for an existing book like this. I'm willing to do the work; I just don't know how.

(I mean just look at that! Gorgeous!)

So... If I want to start reading Terry Pratchett: is there a good book to start? Or a series? Is there a specific order to read?
