And you can use Kindle Paperwhite for eight weeks on a single charge, even with the light on.
Kindle Paperwhite can enhance your reading experience like no book can. Leave margin notes that can be exported to your computer; share meaningful quotes instantly on your social network or see which passages other Kindle users have highlighted.
Oh, and hold up to 1,100 books in a device that’s under a centimetre thick.
2. Remington S8590 Keratin Therapy Pro straightener
The best, so why not treat her to the Remington Keratin Therapy Pro Straightener. It includes ceramic-coated plates infused with Keratin Micro-Conditioners to protect and care for her hair while she styles.
