My amazon kindle cover just broke. 5 years old. I think it was due to plastic fatigue (cracked due to the magnetic pull when the cover was opened). The metal piece on the right (picture) was pulled out and stayed with the front cover magnet.

can Kindle be used to read borrowed books from national library board? Kind of restricted. iPad can be used to read magazine/ books whereas kindle better for books. Of course, iPad will cause more eye fatigue

Planning to get the latest Oasis (Champagne , 32 gb with special offers) from Amazon, which forwarder is the cheapest way to have it sent to Singapore?

Saw that the Amazon SG does not carry this model

I have the Voyage, 4 GB, not enough, need to keep deleting the books after reading. If you have audio books then 4 GB definitely not enough. Audio books are good if you are driving.

Did some researched, think EZbuy is still the cheapest. But damn...its damn ex....almost $400 a pop. But I love the press buttons!

Not sure if Amazon Black Fridays will have sale on this model, seems unlikely. But just wait out a few more days I guess.

Ah icic.....true also... now I left 1gb+ more to go from my kindle paperwhite lol. I think a 8gb Oasis would be good for me already haha since I don’t have audio books.

Ya man...I think at least close to $400 for the oasis alone and need another $50 for a good leather cover too lol.

I’m quite keen on the oasis cause bigger size mah... easier to read, intend to use it at home only as it’s quite huge lol. Kindle paperwhite is the best size to carry around haha 🤣

Damn tempted la, it’s the Ferrari of ebook readers lol
