Hi, don't have an ereader, hence my joining this forum as I need to ask questions first. The only reader I can get locally seem to be Kindle, the paperwhite gen10. It ticks some boxes for me, read in sun light, at night, battery lasts for weeks and not afraid of getting a bit wet. My real concerns are, being "locked" to amazon, I also don't have permanent Internet, would have to share cell phone connection. Once every 6 months or so I can do. That apparently is a big problem for kindle. Last issue seems not being able to delete books unless online. Turned my recipes notes etc to an epub file and am always changing and adding to it, so going online do delete it seems stupid to me. Any answers and advice will be gr8, thx.

Hello and welcome to MobileRead!

Yes, you can use your Kindle offline perfectly well. It works better if you connect it once to register. My Kindles generally stay offline for years. I sideload everything from Calibre and delete books via Calibre too. Works perfectly.
