I have decided on a paperwhite for my husband but and trying to figure out if I need to get the 3G or the regular one. Can someone please tell me the added benefits of the 3G version so I can decide if it is worth the extra money?

It allows you to download books anywhere you get a 3G connection. You can also just use Wifi for that but you have to find a wifi. If it rarely leaves home, then when you do leave home, just download a few more books. It should be able to connect to hotel and hotspot wifi systems just fine. If you don't travel much, 3G not much use. If you do and you get say, the Wall Street Journal or your local newspaper on it, then it might matter more.

I bought my self the Wifi one and a blue case. When you open the case, it turns on as there is a magnetic clasp.
