Oh my gosh, just got my Voyage (the UPS man was early today -thank you UPS!!) and though I’ve barely gotten it set up – I already love it. It is much smaller and lighter than my Paperwhite, but feels ‘right’ – I’m loving not having to remove my hand from the book to turn the page and the overall screen experience is so great – so much easier on the eyes. I’m anxious to see how long the battery really does last with a voracious reader, but so far, it’s fabulous!!
I really think they’ve created THE reader. I think this is going to enhance my reading experience. Time will tell, but right now, I’m over the moon.
Diane’s excitement and enthusiasm speaks louder than the best advertisement Amazon produces. Diane ordered her Voyage “the minute it came out” and admitted that she checked the order status every day.
I’ll admit to being envious that Diane already has a Voyage in her hands. I ordered on the second day and was given a delivery date of November 28. Following Diane’s habit, I checked the order status. The estimated delivery date is now October 31. I’m over the moon!
