Kindle is our most affordable e-reader—now with a touchscreen display, exclusive Kindle features, twice the storage, and more.

Designed for readers

Kindle is purpose-built for reading. Indulge your love of reading without interruptions like email alerts and push notifications. The weeks-long battery life allows you to read for weeks on a single charge. Kindle uses actual ink particles and proprietary, hand-built fonts to create crisp text similar to what you see in a physical book. Kindle is lighter than most paperback books, making it easy and comfortable to hold in one hand for extended periods of time.

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. Choose from eight text sizes to prevent tired eyes and keep you reading longer.

Flip through without losing your place

With Page Flip, you can skim page-by-page, scan by chapter, or skip to the end for a sneak peek without losing your place.

Take and share notes

Add margin notes that you can edit, delete, or even export from your device to your computer. Share highlighted sections and meaningful quotes on Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads, and see passages frequently highlighted by other Kindle readers.

Go beyond a book with the following features (coming soon)

Enhanced search

It's even easier to find what you are looking for by combining and previewing results from your Library, Goodreads, and the Kindle Store on the same page.

Family Library

Family Library links your Amazon account to that of your spouse or partner. For the first time, you and your family can access and easily share not only your own Kindle books, but also books from the Amazon account of a spouse or partner.

Word Wise

Word Wise, available on many popular English language titles, makes it easier to enjoy and quickly understand more challenging books. Short and simple definitions automatically appear above difficult words, so you can keep reading with fewer interruptions. Tap on a word to bring up a simple card with definitions, synonyms, and more. You can adjust the number of hints you see with a simple slider.

Expanded X-Ray

X-Ray's new timeline view lets you easily flip through notable passages to remind yourself of what's happened in the book, or navigate easily through images. X-Ray lets you explore the "Bones of the Book." See all the passages across a book that mention relevant ideas, fictional characters, historical figures, places, or topics of interest.

About the Book

With About the Book, see information about the book as you start to read, including its place in a series and author information, plus mark it as "Currently Reading" on Goodreads.

Shop Amazon's expansive selection, choose a title, and begin reading in seconds. Download books in under 60 seconds—no computer required.

As has been the case for years, Amazon sloooowwwwly adds new changes and features to the Kindle. This one is no exception. If you’ve used a Kindle in the past, you’re not going to notice much of a change with this one, but since there are some minor upgrades and so forth, I’ll briefly go over them:

Know what you are buying!!!!

I’ve had this Kindle for a while now. Many of the reviews say it all so I don’t think I could add much. But I feel like I need to speak on behalf of this Kindle to shield it from reviewers and owners who seem to have no idea what they bought. If this could help clear up any confusion for a first time buyer then writing this is worth it. So I have to begin by asking reviewers that confuse us all?

Overall good replacement(an upgrade I would say) for a physical book!

Pros: Anti-glare Book-like screen(should have been a bit brighter though).

Good Value at $79 with a Few Nits

I am writing this from the perspective of being a long-time experienced Kindle user vs. someone brand new. From an overall perspective, considering the pricing of the Kindle with Special Offers at $79 vs. higher amounts for the different flavors of Kindle available today, this one is a bargain. If you have wanted to get your kids a Kindle to encourage reading as well as sharing of books but hesitated because $119 to $400+ is a lot of money to risk with a child, maybe at $79 this is your price point.

Kindle, 6" Glare-Free Touchscreen vs Kindle Keyboard… clearing up some innacuracies.

There are nearly 2000 reviews already written on this device… we wouldn’t have bothered to add our comments except that some of the reviews that come up first because they are suppose to be the most helpful… have what seems to be inaccurate information. We have had a “KIndle Keyboard” for years now and we subscribe to both Prime and Kindle Unlimited. We still love the “Keyboard” which for those who are unfamiliar is actually a “third generation” Kindle which was originally released at the end of July in 2010. Even after four years the “Keyboard” is still quite useful and the battery is still strong. In addition to being a normal e-reader it also has audio output. It can read books to you and play MP3 files. It is a quality device and if taken care of… it will last a long time. Our experience with it is the primary reason we trust products with the Amazon name to be quality items.

A book lover’s delight!

I got this Kindle during a Black Friday sale at Best Buy last year. They had this Kindle and one of the Kindle Fires discounted and I was torn between which one to buy. I finally went with this one because I don’t really need another device on which, essentially, to watch Netflix! While I am an avid reader, this was my first e-reader purchase. I’d read entire books on my laptop and smart phone before so I’m not one of those “I’ll only ever read a real book because that’s how it’s meant to be” people. I think e-readers are great. I’d just never made it a point to buy one with all the unread books I already have lying around the house. That being said, I love my Kindle now. Since November I’ve probably read close to twenty books. It’s just so easy. Using this particular Kindle also has the added benefit that it’s just an e-reader. Not a tablet, i.e. a trove of distractions. I am delighted by the fact that I can just take trip with my little device and have more books than I need. It really makes me feel like I am living in the future. I find it amazing every time that it’s a Saturday night and I find out about something I need to read immediately, I can just get on the Kindle store and buy a new book without ever having to leave my house. I also love the size. It fits in any of my handbags or coat pockets. I think it’s intuitive and easy to use. I love that it’s glare-free because I tend to spend a lot of time outside and I can see the text no matter how bright the sun is shining. The battery life is great. Since owning it, I’ve probably charged it three times. I would highly recommend the cover Amazon has for this model. It’s really handy. I’m attaching a picture to show what a lovely addition Kindle with the cover makes to an already wonderful day. I’m definitely glad I bought this over a tablet. It’s perfect for me.

Great but PLEASE give us a font lock

I love having moved from the buttons to this value priced touch screen with two exceptions. First, I didn’t realize how much I was depending on the texture on the back of my old Kindle to keep from dropping it. The cheaper plastic on this new model is super slick and dropable. I added some textured stickers on day two of ownership.

An All-Purpose Tablet User Converts to Kindle – Easier on Eyes with Superior Battery Life! I Love My Kindle!

I’ve used tablets for years to read my Kindle books using the Kindle App for Android. But recently, I bought a Kindle Paperwhite for my sight-impaired dad and I liked his so much that I bought a Kindle for myself. I’m finding the advantages to reading on a dedicated eReader over an all-purpose tablet well worth it. For one, I’ve been having a lot of issues lately with eye fatigue from working on the computer all day and reading on my Kindle is far easier on my eyes. Reading on a Kindle is very similar to reading the paper pages of a physical book. I can see it definitely reducing my eyestrain.

I finally got a Kindle because I had to take a 3-week trip to Rotterdam from California. I knew I would never be able to carry as many books as I would need, especially since we were going to need to carry a number of things back with us. It was a long flight with layovers both ways, and sleeping was nearly impossible in the cramped plane.

no, once again, THERE IS NO LIGHT! Why are you not reading the description, those who are so offended by some reviews? Here, I’ve taken a screenshot for you. NO.BUILT.IN.LIGHT. Clear, now?
