      I didn’t know about the Paperwhite update but I have had problems with PDFs on there. I’ll have to read that one.

      Dear Author’s article on pricing was interesting and Milan is always articulate.

        The firmware update is supposed to push automatically to your Paperwhite 2, but mine hasn’t received it yet. If I learn more, I’ll let you know.

        I found the whole article and comments really interesting. I’m not sure I agree with her on all points, but it’s certainly food for thought.
