That said, I had a Voyage since right after it came out. I'm wondering if any of you have an Oasis and think it is worth the upgrade from Voyage (I'm definitely getting at least the Voyage. Gotta have those page turning buttons.) I like that it's waterproof, but I'm a little concerned about the weird shape. I'm not interested in audible integration. I have a smartphone and listen to audible there. So I'd be in it for superior ergonomics, better screen, and waterproofing. But I'm also just wondering if any of you have one and what you'd say about it.

I want one! I hope someone has some experience to share!

Bigger size=fewer page turns. My thumb works fine. No value.
Waterproof=I can read in the rain or the bathtub. No value to me. I don’t do either.
Longer charge time=longer time me between charges. No value to me as it’s aleady completely not a problem. It’s not like I read 24/7/365
So for me, the upgrade is a $$$ solution looking for a problem.
For the record, I LOVE having a Kindle.

I do find it easy to use with either hand holding the thicker border side.

I have the Voyage, but I'm kind of wishing I got the Oasis instead. I would like an actual button to turn the page, plus the shape would probably make it easier for me to hold. I had an ebook reader years ago, before Amazon was selling them, and it was fatter on one side like the Oasis. It really was comfortable to hold even though it was a heck of a lot larger and heavier than current ebook readers. Also, I've noticed when pressing to make a page turn, I sometimes press too far to the right and end up going back a page instead, so a button would help with that issue.

I love my Voyage, the Oasis is a bit too pricey for me.

I looked into the Oasis when My Precious was lost. It does e-books, and it does audio-books. But, it does not do immersion reading. What were these people thinking? That ticked me off enough to close the Amazon page and walk away from the computer.
