I have a older kindle that doesn't have a backlight - would be nice to read without having to have the lamp on - if anyone has one going cheap that is collecting dust - please let me know - don't use very often since I prefer real books, but a author I have started reading had a 10 book omnibus on kindle for very cheap (price of one hardcopy)

Let me confirm it still works first!

 

If it does, you can have it gratis + any postage costs

 

 

 

Edit - yes it is backlit

Yeah the front light is why they don't affect your sleep like an LCD screen with backlight when reading in bed at night etc. 

 

Absolutely brilliant things, Kindles/eReaders.
