The latest Paperwhite boasts a thinner and lighter design than its predecessor, measuring 8.18mm thick and weighing 182g, while also Audible support, so you can switch seamlessly between reading and listening to the audiobook. Paperwhite's six-inch, 300 pixels-per-inch display includes five LEDs and an adjustable front light for a uniform, glare-free display in any setting.

The new Kindle Paperwhite is also waterproof, designed to withstand getting splashed at the beach or dropped in the bathtub, hot tub, or pool. It’s IPX8 rated which means it can stand being submerged two metres down in fresh water for up to 60 minutes. And that's more than can be said for you.

Pre-lockdown Duncan was widely regarded as the best-dressed man ever to work for T3 – admittedly not saying much. Post-lockdown he is looking forward to wearing clothes other than shorts and hoodies again very soon, assuming he can still fit into them. He currently writes about cycling, fitness tech that isn’t too heavy, and all things kitchen and home related.
