The all-new Kindle – small, light, and perfect for reading. Enjoy 15% faster page turns, new darker fonts for easier reading, and new parental controls. Kindle reads like paper with no glare, even in bright sunlight, and holds over 1,000 books so you can take your library wherever you go.

Reads Like Real Paper, No Glare Even in Bright Sunlight

Kindle uses an electronic ink screen that looks and reads like real paper. The matte screen reflects light like ordinary paper and uses no backlighting, so you can read as easily in bright sunlight as in your living room. Unlike tablet screens, Kindle has no glare.

Lighter Than a Paperback, Thinner Than a Pencil

Less than 6 ounces, Kindle is lighter than most paperback books, and weighs half as much as many tablets, making it easy and comfortable to hold in one hand for extended periods of time. At just over a third of an inch, Kindle is also thinner than a pencil.

One-Month Battery Life

Kindle also has the advantage of significantly lower power consumption than tablets. Kindle does not require power to maintain a page of text, allowing you to read for up to a month on a single charge, with wireless off and a half hour of reading per day, versus hours on a tablet or smart phone.

Easy on the Eyes

Every time your eyes switch from a bright screen to a dimmer, ambient room, your eyes have to adjust, which may result in fatigue. With Kindle the page is the same brightness as everything else in the room so there's no adjustment needed. Kindle also has eight adjustable text sizes and three font styles to suit your reading preference. If your eyes tire, simply increase the font size and continue reading comfortably.

Read in Any Position

When you read for long periods of time, you often switch positions to get more comfortable. Kindle has a uniform contrast ratio that does not change with your viewing angle, so you can read in any position.

Books in Under 60 Seconds

Kindle connects easily to your home Wi-Fi network or Wi-Fi hotspots on the road for quick, convenient access to books and content anywhere you can access Wi-Fi. Also, enjoy free Wi-Fi access at AT&T hotspots across the U.S. Find a book and start reading in seconds with our fast, free wireless delivery. Carry more than 1,000 books – keep your library with you wherever you go.

Global Language Support

Kindle supports the display of non-Latin characters, so you can read books and documents in your favorite language. Kindle displays Cyrillic (such as Russian), Japanese, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), and Korean characters, in addition to Latin and Greek scripts. Kindle also provides access to several international dictionaries.

Real Page Numbers

We match the pages of a Kindle book to the text in a print book to identify the corresponding "real" page number. Easily reference and cite passages or read alongside others in a book club or class.

Fast Page Turns Kindle's powerful processor is tuned for fast, seamless page turns.

Precise 5-Way Controller

Kindle has an easy-to-use 5-way controller, enabling precise on-screen navigation for selecting text to highlight or looking up words. No on-screen fingerprints.

Supports Children's Books and Comics

Kindle supports children's books with Kindle Text Pop-Up, and comic books with Kindle Panel View which allows you to read a comic book panel by panel.


Our Whispersync technology synchronizes your last page read, bookmarks and annotations across your devices so you can always pick up where you left off.

Organize Your Library and Free Backup

Organize your Kindle library into customized collections, or categories, to easily access any book you are looking for. You can add an item to multiple collections to make organizing and finding titles even easier. Automatically back up your library in the cloud, so you never need to worry about losing your books. Re-download wirelessly anytime for free.

Built-in Dictionary with Instant Lookup

Come across a word you don't know? Kindle includes The New Oxford American Dictionary with over 250,000 entries and definitions for free. Instantly lookup the definition without ever leaving the book – simply select the word with the cursor and the definition will automatically display at the bottom of the screen.

Carry and Read Your Personal Documents

Kindle makes it easy to take your personal documents with you, eliminating the need to print. You and your approved contacts can e-mail documents – including Word, PDF and more – directly to your Kindle and read them in Kindle format. You can also send documents to your Kindle using Send to Kindle.

I got my first Kindle. This is a nice ebook reader. I’m going to jump right in and tell you what I found to be its Pros and Cons. Then I’m going to tell how it compares to its biggest competitor, the Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch.

Do you just want to read a book?? Than this is the kindle for you!

I have owned a Kindle for several years now. I have had the 2nd generation Kindle and I have had the Kindle Keyboard. When my mom expressed interest in getting a Kindle I decided to give her my Kindle Keyboard because she doesnt have Wifi in her house and my older Kindle Keyboard had 3G, which is what she needed. And I decided to buy the Basic Kindle for myself because (1) I didnt want to wait for the Paperwhite to come out and (2) I just needed Wifi and (3)and most importantly I JUST WANT TO READ A BOOK, not listen to text-to-speach, or go shopping on Amazon, or listen to music, etc. All I want to do is read a book…thats it! This Kindle is perfect for that. Its smaller and lighter, the pages turn faster than the Keyboard version, it basically has everything I need to download a book and read a book with a much better price than the Paperwhite or Keyboard. Yes, you have to navigate through the keyboard on this kindle with a 5-way controller, but I rarely use the keyboard anyway. To download a book, I just search and buy books on my computer and send them to my Kindle…which is much quicker no matter what version of Kindle you have. So if you dont need, want, or use all the extras then I would definitely recommend the Basic Kindle for $69 with special offers, because who really pays attention to the screen savers anyway.

If you’re thinking of buying one, take my word for it!

I honestly read almost every review for this Kindle making sure I was making the right choice. I have the Kindle App for my iPad, but as amazing as the “retina display” is, you’re still reading a computer screen. Short term is fine, if you enjoy reading at 20 min intervals. My dilemma was; do I rebuy the hard copy of the book, or go all in and get a Kindle. Regular or paperwhite? So many things to consider! That being said, this is why I chose just the 6″ E-ink display.

So far I love it! Has features even my Fire HD doesn’t have.

I’ve had this a week now. I also have a Kindle Fire HD I have had for about a year, with the case on, the Fire HD is heavy. I love the HD, and never leave home with out it, but many times I wish I could just slip my books in my pocket and run. I go a lot of places on the run, take others places where I wait for them to shop or what ever, and there is not WiFi to play on my Fire HD. I just want to read. My reading time has come up from one book a year to 50 books a year, and now my reading will go up even more.

Your Kindle has an email address. Use it!

This is the third Kindle I have bought. I bought one for my Father and now this one is for my girlfriend. One little known feature of the Kindle is your get your own email address when you buy one. You can use this email address to email books to yourself or to other people. I routinely download .mobi and .epub books online and email them to myself and to my Dad (and soon my girlfriend). Within seconds they will magically appear on your Kindle’s home page.

Kindle 6" E Ink

I tried the Nook SImple Touch first since I already had a Nook Color and had allowed my husband to share it and he rooted it to become a tablet., which I did not appreciate since it meant I could not use the regular Nook apps or the Nook as it came from the store as I preferred it to the Nook reading app from Android. Anyway, the Simple Touch was just not the reader for me. I tried to get used to it and tried to like it, but there was just something about it, The border of the device was too wide for me I think, and the color was just not like regular paper, but not like my Nook Color either. So when my mother offered me her Nook Color as she was upgrading to a Nook Tablet, I jumped at the chance and gave the Simple Touch to my son.

I must like it since this is the third kindle I’ve owned…

Best tablet for as little money as you spend which is probably why I keep going back to them. I like things simple which is why I don’t care much for touch screen surfaces, yet this device will do more more than just digital books as it also accepts games like “Pirate Stash” & “Pixel Perfect” as well as allowing you to surf the web (tho it’s not terribly user friendly in regard to the latter). Treat it gently tho and buy yourself a cover to help prevent damage (had one replaced under warranty when I lost lower third of the screen) and remember to ease the charging cord into the port as port is prone to become disconnected with rough treatment and prevent charging in the future (which is how I ended up having to by a third one outright). I’d also recommend a wall adapter as it will allow you to continue reading while plugged in and seems to charge a lot faster than when plugged into your computer usb port. So long as you treat it kindly, it’s a fine portable reading tool that doesn’t ding your wallet too badly.
