I was asking about ebooks, not where to get the Kindle from.

I'm buying from Amazon. Am physically in the US. And has Prime membership.

I can't find ebooks though.... So not sure if I should get the Kindle. I have some old ebooks.

I get mine from the calibre library. I have accumulated plenty of books throughout the years, have been slowly finding digital copies to replace them.

By using the calibre software, I can convert other ebook formats into Kindle friendly mobi formats, which I will transfer manually into my device via USB.

My kindle is used for reading chinese novels by online writers, so it is free for download.

No regret for me in getting kindle as i can just read the downloaded novels on the go and not straining my eyes.

What genres of books are you into?

It was priced at SGD $173.99 at the time, and I think it was either a one or six months seller warranty. The pricing was just slightly more than getting one shipped from the US, but the good thing is that I do not have to wait a week or two to get my hands on one.

Edits: I just remembered paying for it with Fuzzie coupons, which makes means I've only paid SGD $143.99 for my Kindle Paperwhite after a savings of $30 cash back with Fuzzie.

I hear from other members that you are able to get local websites to buy and ship the kindles from the US to Singapore for you. The ones I know of are Uskoop and Ezbuy.

You may like to know that Amazon US has occasionally been lowering the prices on their Kindle models of late. You can check in on their offers every couple of weeks if you want to get one shipped from the US. Another option would be to wait till the next festive sale and checking the local prices again to see if you can get one at a discounted price.

When you purchase a Kindle Paperwhite, do make sure it is the current model, and that the embossed Kindle name on the surface is in black (not white).
