My old gen 1 kindle bit the dust at last and I'm interested in a paperwhite - mainly because I read after Mrs DB is asleep so tend to be reading in the pitch dark. Previously had to use old kindle and my phone - using phone to light up kindle - complete guddle.
Concern is that the paperwhite lighting can't be turned down enough to use in the complete darkness - I don't want snowblindness staring at a blazing white page! I want it to be light enough to read but dim enough so my retinas stay intact.
Any experiences of using in the complete dark?
