    If you scroll about 3/4 the way down on the product page of amazon it gives a full chart of the differences:

    Wi-Fi only accesses Amazon.com via wi-fi footprints; ie: only where you have wi-fi access. 3G means you can download a book anywhere there is 3G service.

    I currently own a 2nd gen. Kindle Wi-Fi and I find that I don't really need to access internet outside of a wi-fi network.

    I hope that helps.

    The more expensive one has 3G, so you can use something like your cell phone as a hot spot when there's no wifi available. I think it's useless on a regular Kindle, unless you want to DL books on-the-go.

    If it has 3g I shouldn't need my cell for hot spot, right? I would use my cell for hot spot if I had the WiFi one. But I don't really need either unless I'm DLing a book, right? There is no internet on it.

    Actually both of those do have browser capabilities. DH has one with 3g but the 3g can only be used to DL books not use for internet. To use internet you have to use wifi

    Re: What's the difference in these Kindles

    If (big if) I were to get one I don't need to get online. But supposedly there is one for $119 and one for $139 without ads. But I don't see that anywhere.

    There's also the Nook which may seem easier to hold.

    Those are available from amazon directly.

    eta: and the ads are really not obtrusive. If you still have the gc from best buy buy there. Also the basic kindle is just fine. You can get a reading light to make up for the non lightedness.

    What features are you looking for in an e-reader?

    Personally, I'd just get the cheapest one ($69, 6", wifi with ads). It doesn't light up, and it would probably be a PITA to browse on, but that's what computers/tablets are for.

    I don't really anticipate getting one, but if for any reason I did it would have to have the light, I have a reading light and it really irritates me, which is why I no longer read. And ads...I hate ads, they interrupt my concentration and drive me nuts.

    The ads are only on the page where you pick which book you want to read and the "screen saver" not while you are reading. Really it is not a big deal at all.
