    DRATS! How I wished the glow, erm, PaperLite Kindle had physical buttons!

    Yes, I get that you can tap, swipe, etc., but having owned each generation of Kindle including the touch, I far prefer holding the kindle (in either my left or right hand) with a thumb on the NEXT PAGE button. Then, just press, not move thumb to screen, tap, and then back the the bevel.

    I really hope they come out with a lit version of the Kindle with touch screen plus button navigation.

    I agree, the old one with buttons is still my favourite - even without wifi!
