I currently have the Kindle 3 (keyboard) that I got for Christmas two years ago. I didn't upgrade to the kindle 4 because it really didn't have anything special to it but now i'm thinking of upgrading since it has a built in light. So should i upgrade? My current one works fine but the lighted case i have is broke so flickers based on how you have it on the kindle. Also, how much do you think i could sell it for? Its new last November because i broke my other one and it was covered by warranty.

Yes, you should, but then I work for Amazon and that would help me keep my job!

What did people ever do before self-lighting eReaders?

They turned on a light bulb to read their paper and ink books. They did this for many decades. Before that, they read by oil or gas lamp or candles.

The fact that it's got a built in lighted screen is a nice feature, but if that's your only reason for upgrading, I'd say you are wasting your money buy buying a new Kindle Paperwhite.
