I bought oh kindle paper white because he can read in the dark, it has wifi to download from internet. I have a cheap nook and its great for me but wish I had got the dearer one with the light. Similar to the kindle paperwhite but cheaper as you say. The file format used is epub and with the calibre program on a pc can convert to and from pretty much any format. I have a friend who is a complete technophobe and I load books for her , many from forum members .
whatever you buy invest in cover. They are about a fiver on ebay but are different sizes so you must order for the particular device.

You will also need to buy the power adaptor and cable for charging it, they are classed as accessories.

The same applies to the Nook. A shame really as  a year or so back the power adapter was supplied with the Kindle free of charge, now you just get the cable! I would recommend buying a generic charger (around £4 from Amazon) rather than pay £12 for the Kindle version...
