Gone are the days of stuffing a selection of page-turners in your sack and searching for book-swaps across the Continent: Amazon’s Kindle range has become ubiquitous with ebook efficiency – and the glowing goodness of the Paperwhite is no exception to the ream of capable readers.

Its design might be more mundane than magical, but, with a responsive touch screen that’s crystal clear to boot, it’s a delight to read with. Amazon’s new typeface – “Bookerly” – is easy to scan with the eyes, whilst the lightweight shell means wrists won’t ache, either.

Minor niggles – like the bizarre bottom button placement – fail to detract from what feels like a well-designed device. The in-built light is brilliant for under-the-covers readers, without the glare of a tablet or smartphone, and the weeks-long battery is a boon for those on the road.

What’s more, our model had both Wi-Fi and free 3G on board, meaning we could grab our next gripping novel wherever we roamed.

Simply styled and easy on the eyes, smart software and a capacious cell make the Kindle Paperwhite a properly appealing option for bookworms on the road.
