This will be my first winter with my Kindle. I keep it in my truck, and am used to having it with me. Will it make it through a New England winter, or must I keep it warm?

The user guide for the Paperwhite says:

Don't expose your Kindle to extreme heat or cold. For example, don't leave it in the trunk of
your car in sub-zero or high-heat conditions.
Operating temperature - 32F to 95F (0C to 35C).
Storage temperature - 14F to 113F (-10C to 45C).

There's an operating range on the product page and I expect 'New England winter' is outside those specs. People who have left their devices in their trunks have had problems, very hot being worse than very cold. A device exposed to prolonged cold may recover when moved to warmer surroundings, the most likely failure being brittleness and battery refusing to power the device.

Assuming you're a guy who doesn't want to carry a 'purse' you can stick it in your lunchbox or get a really guy-centered tool bag at Home Depot.

Having it in the truck over the course of the day, intermittently running the heater shouldn't be a problem--leaving it out overnight is a bad idea.

Thanks, Peachy. To be on the safe side, I'll carry it in my coat pocket. Big pockets on winter coats. Should'nt be a problem.

I would put it in a sturdy case. The least little bit of torque can damage the eInk screen.
