As I said the last time this was sold, I own several Kindle models and do enjoy this one. It is light and easy on the eyes.

Considering where this is coming from shouldn’t it be a lot cheaper?

I purchased one of these earlier this year from Amazon. I also have a Kindle Fire HD, but find that the Touch keeps my eyes from becoming strained so that I can read for longer periods of time. Great price…I paid more for mine. I use the text to speech option often.

anyone know if this is the one with ads?

I couldn’t find mention of it in the specifications, I may have missed it, but I think that yes this model includes ads. “Includes Special Offers & Sponsored Screensavers” seems to indicate this.

I remember on my brother’s kindle it showed an ad for hand lotion or something everytime it went to sleep, also there was a banner on either a top or bottom edge when you’re browsing your library, I don’t think while you’re reading though.

Probably… Looking at the list of refurbs they all have ads

Yes but Kindle calls it:

Special Offers & Sponsored Screensavers

You can make a one time payment to remove these screensavers though

I noticed that some of the cases selling for this Kindle have lights. Can I read in the dark with this Kindle like I can my Kindle Fire?

Yeah, if you buy a case with a light or put a light on it. The kindle itself is not illuminated. The only e-ink kindle with illumination is the paper white.

Used a Kindle touch for over a year and loved it… Then the Kindle Paper White version 2 came out. I like reading at night and my hubby would gripe about the light being on. The PaperWhite solved the problem. After having the Paperwhite for 4 weeks, I tried to go back to the touch and my eyes noticed a huge difference. Gave the touch away the next day. All in all, the touch is great until you have tried the Paperwhite. I do miss the text to speach of the touch, but not enough to want to go back for that alone.

Can any PDF be loaded on these? Will the text to speech work with non-Amazon books?

You can also disable wifi, and eventually it goes away, except for a small banner reminding you that if you turn on your wifi, threppey will bug you with ads. Added benefit, turning off wifi increases battery life.

The text to speech works with non-amazon books. I haven’t had any problems with PDFs, but don’t use them much.

Bought mine as a refurb from cowboom for $35 this summer after stepping on my 1st gen kindle. If you read in bed, don’t let it slip off the side. I like it a lot, and covers for it are CHEAP through Amazon since it is a discontinued model. My one complaint is that sometimes I accidentally do some super-secret gesture that puts me ahead about 20 pages and I have to find my place again. That could just be my quirky motions though.

Mine also turns pages with only the slightest touch–even by the cover. Aside from that, I love my Kindle Touch–the ease of reading, the text-to-speech option, and the ‘experimental’ browser.

chiming in here…

i have this model, love it and would recommend it to all.

the special offers & sponsored screensavers do not affect or interfere with your reading experience.
