[“Great on Kindle” are ebooks that are marked so by Amazon because they look great on a Kindle, eg they did their homework with formatting, etc, it’s not a lazy PDF scan and such]

Amazon describes this book as follows:

“A story of faith and fraud in post–Civil War America, told through the lens of a photographer who claimed he could capture images of the dead

In the early days of photography, in the death-strewn wake of the Civil War, one man seized America’s imagination. A β€œspirit photographer,” William Mumler took portrait photographs that featured the ghostly presence of a lost loved one alongside the living subject. Mumler was a sensation: The affluent and influential came calling, including Mary Todd Lincoln, who arrived at his studio in disguise amidst rumors of sΓ©ances in the White House.”

I haz this very model and I’m using it daily these days [because READING is FUN-DA-MENTAL], it is holding up pretty well even when I send a boatload of Kindle samples and online articles to it daily (within reason of course). It has a touchscreen, built-in light, 4GB on-board storage (some of it is eaten up by the Kindle OS and such), Wifi-only, micro-USB charging, plenty of cheap cases available,300ppi display, annoying Goodreads button at the top of the page (if you don’t care for Goodreads it takes up valuable space that could have gone to a feature you use more often), etc…
