The Kindle Paperwhite 3 e-reader is still very popular on Amazon, even though the latest generation Paperwhite 4 has been on the market for awhile. In the e-reader category the previous generation model is in 4th and 6th place and this is notable because how expensive it is. The Paperwhite 4 retails for $99 for the base model and the 3rd generation is $119. When it comes right down to it, the Paperwhite 3 is still more popular than other e-readers such as the Sony Digital Paper and Onyx Boox Nova.
The latest generation Paperwhite is the most popular model on Amazon right now, this e-reader is waterproof and has Audible functionality. You can pair it with a pair of wireless headphones or a speaker, which is convenient for people who want to take a break from reading and have the audio editions read aloud. The Paperwhite 4 dominates the number 1, 2, 3 position, with various storage configurations and 4G/LTE internet access.
I am actually surprised the Paperwhite 3 is still selling very well and the bestseller system is dynamic, which means people are still buying it in droves.
