What are the differences between the Paperwhite 1 and 2 regarding screen size and ease of reading? Thanks for answering, and no, I am not the guy who plotted to have my Kindle delivered before my obnoxious neighbor got his.

Same screen size. Same exact size of device.

I can't answer the rest of your query, but I saw a friend's PW1 when he had it sent to my house so that I could forward it to him in another country, and the screen clarity and the light made the screen much better in comparison to my K2 and KK.

I recently broke down and got two of these devices for Christmas for my kiddo's. (yes, I know Christmas is MONTHS away but... but.... but.... ) Anyway.... I didn't think that the light would make such a huge difference in reading on the device. But it really does. I absolutely love the paperwhite and now I am jealous and want one for myself.

I haven't tested the goodreads integration on the device but look forward to that.

Make sure to charge them occasionally so the batteries don't die completely before December.

In my experience, the Paperwhite 2 has better lighting.

I plan on that. Gives me an excuse to peek at them and turn green with envy. LOL. I will probably break down and give them early.

Oh, go ahead and buy yourself one -- you deserve it.

I think you should change your name to "enabler"

Sealevel274 says the PAPERWHITE 2 has better lighting than
the first PW. Do you (all) agree? If so, I'm going to order tomorrow. Thanks for taking time to answer.

I have a PW1, and LOVE it. However, several posters here, who have both 1 & 2 say that the PW2 is what the 1 SHOULD have been. Sooo... take from that what you will.

I have the Paperwhite 2nd gen. A friend has the Paperwhite 1rst gen.

I can tell the difference between the 2 - I like the lighting better on mine.

I have both. I think both the light and the screen resolution are better on the PW2.

I have the PW1 and love it, but I still recommend you get the PW2. Amazon recently updated the software for the PW1 and I've noticed it is a little slower than it used to be. The PW2 has a faster processor, and other physical improvements too.
