Kindle Paperwhite 3G & library.logos.com

Has anyone tried using these in combination?

I have a Kindle 3, which is slower, and I haven't really used his function.

Does anyone use this?

Currently, I export, but that takes some time.

Thanks!

Peace, Joel!          *smile*             I'm not quite sure what you're asking or sharing; however, have you also looked at Biblia.com   (http://biblia.com/books/esv/Jn1.1)       

OR Bible.FaithLife.com     ( http://bible.faithlife.com/books/esv/Jn1.1)

Philippians 4:  4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand..........

Hi Joel,

Kindle 3G Paperwhite is not made for that environment. It is designed for a "mobile" environment i.e. cell phone. K3G is a great e-reader. Anything else it's not so.

For what it appears you're looking for I think you should be looking for a tablet.

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

Joel, I periodically use the Kindle Paperwhite using wifi (not the more expensive 3G; we use a cellular hotspot for travel). 

What Kindle calls the 'Experimental Browser' works fine to read Logos books:

- I use the library.faithlife.com mentioned above; the site keeps my place independent of my other Logos platforms

- One view .... the book's text. No highlighting of course. Clear; readable. Logos ships in large blocks of text at a time, so you're not constantly re-querying Logos.  Most books I read on the Kindle are 'reading' ... meaning I don't worry about notes, Bible refs, etc. Kindle's not good at that.

- You do have to use some minor playing-around due to the formatting of library.faithlife.com but just in selecting the book; not reading.

As also noted above, the PaperWhite's main value is 'reading'. So if you wanted something beyond that, a tablet is in order. But the PaperWhite is definitely easy on the eyes. I'd say I'm maybe 70% PaperWhite and 30% Logos on my iPod.

Regarding the 3G, I'd wonder about the coverage (don't know; just wondering).  We hook to Verizon so almost everywhere.
