Amazon's latest Kindle, the New Kindle Oasis, is definitely appealing. It's got a bigger screen, waterproofing, and Bluetooth support for listening to audiobooks. But if you consider reading to be fundamental, you're better off sticking to traditional paper books instead of pixelated pages.
Study after study show that reading on screens is, for various reasons, inferior to reading on paper. It's something to consider before dropping your hard-earned scratch on a New Kindle Oasis -- or any e-reader.
