A booklover's new best friend
Thin and light for one-handed reading
The all—new Kindle is 11% thinner and 16% lighter than the previous generation Kindle, making it easy and comfortable to hold in one hand.
No glare in bright sunlight
Unlike reflective tablet and smartphone screens, the high contrast touchscreen display eliminates glare in any setting—even direct sunlight.
No eye strain, reads like real paper
Kindle uses actual ink particles and proprietary, hand-built fonts to create crisp text similar to what you see in a physical book. The blacks and whites on the screen are uniform, improving text and image quality.
Battery lasts weeks, not hours
Kindle doesn’t need power to maintain a page of text, allowing you to read for weeks on a single charge.
Unlike tablets, no blue light to disturb your sleep
Recent studies have shown that evening exposure to blue light from devices with backlit screens like tablets and smartphones can suppress the body’s production of melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone that helps the body fall asleep. Because the Kindle display emits no light, you can read anytime without losing sleep.
Thousands of books, no distractions
Kindle is designed as a dedicated e-reader. Indulge your love of reading without interruptions like email alerts and push notifications.
Read comfortably with one hand
Lighter than a paperback, comfortably hold Kindle in one hand for those times when you can't put the book down.
Lose yourself in a book
By design, Kindle is purpose-built for reading and creates a sanctuary so you can lose yourself in a book. Unlike tablets and phones, Kindle doesn't distract you with social media, emails, and text messages.
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.
Look it up instantly without leaving your page
Smart Lookup integrates entries from The New Oxford American Dictionary with information from X-Ray and Wikipedia, so you can access definitions, characters, settings, and more without losing your place.
Read more challenging books
Word Wise 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. Available on many popular English language titles.
Build your vocabulary
Words looked up in the dictionary are automatically added to Vocabulary Builder to expand your knowledge and reinforce retention. Swipe through your vocabulary words, quiz yourself with flashcards, and instantly see those words in context.
Share your library
With Family Library, you and your family can access and easily share not only your own Kindle books, but also books from the linked Amazon account of a spouse or partner.
Lowest book prices, massive selection
Over a million titles are priced at $2.99 or less. Over 2 million titles are $9.99 or less.
Set goals and celebrate with achievement badges
Kids can read books in a simple, fun, and safe environment designed specifically for them with Kindle FreeTime. Kids are rewarded with achievement badges when they reach their reading milestones. A progress report keeps parents updated on total time spent reading, number of words looked up, badges earned, and books read.
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!! SO HAPPY!!

I don’t know why there are so many bad reviews. First of, let’s start off by pointing out the obvious, it’s under $100. You’re not going to receive a Kindle Paperwhite. Before you order, read the specs and compare it to the other Kindles. Yes, the specs say it doesn’t have backlighting so honestly, there shouldn’t be one ounce of surprise when you receive this. I on the other hand, love this little Kindle. I have had the new Kindle Paperwhite and I really didn’t like how big it was to hold in my small hands. I don’t have children hands, but I’m a female and my hands are on the small side. Maybe for a male this would be kind of small, Idk. Anyway, it is smaller than the Paperwhite, but I love that. I also love the fact that it doesn’t come with a light. I used to read at night with the Paperwhite, but that light gave me a headache so I stopped. It is NOT as dark as these bad reviews make it seem. You can read perfectly fine being indoors. They’re exaggerating. This feels more like a book to me than the Kindle Paperwhite ever did. The letters on this Kindle are amazing.
Know What You Are Buying!!!!! (redux)

If you read the “KNOW WHAT YOU ARE BUYING” review for the Kindle prior to this one then you know where I am going. Already this new Kindle is riddled with one star reviews from people that seem to not have read the product description. Here goes:
I love this little e-reader

There are sadly a lot of negative reviews on here, so I though I would add my positive one.

To all the people saying it’s too dark. It’s literally the same screen as the older devices. Look at comparison. If anything the new Kindle (on right) is lighter than the previous device.
Good Value at $79

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 $289+ is a lot of money to risk with a child, maybe at $79 this is your price point.
Perfect for academics!

I was so shocked! So, I was going through a book for my PhD dissertation, highlighting parts for further citations in my project. When I was done with it, I realised that instead of scrolling back all the pages of my e-book, looking for the highlights, I can just export them to my e-mail in PDF file. This is life changing for me! I have always preferred paper books to e-books, but this option is a miracle. It saved me hours of work! I am a very happy customer!
So far I like the buttons better

This replaces an older Kindle model with side tab buttons to advance the screen. So far I like the buttons better. Often the screen doesn’t advance to the next page on touch. Instead it thinks I want to clarify a word or passage and a word synonym screen pops up. It takes several more frustrating touches to get rid of the offensive screen to continue reading. Also the Kindle “froze up” once the first time it was used and I had to shut it down. I hope this doesn’t become a continued problem. Downloads are easy, print fonts can be changed and I appreciate the light weight of the device.
For those of you who want an ereader without all the bells and whistles (yeah, you know just for reading), this is the one

I do love it!! It is exactly what I wanted and needed for an ereader. I LOVE books and already have more around the house than I can adequately store and I live in a 903 sq ft house with my wife and 3 kids, hence the nice mahogany bookshelf lined personal library with fireplace, brandy, pipe, and smoking jacket is on hold for, ooohh I don’t know… ever :). I currently have 347 items on it already, a good percentage were either free or .99. It is easy to use and navigate. I haven’t had to adjust the size of the font for reading. Some of the 1 and 2 star reviews really blasted it for being able to read it in normal room level lighting, which I was really concerned about prior to receiving it (and I’m not talking about the reviews that complained about it not having a back light as the purchasers clearly didn’t read the product description prior to purchase as I knew that going into it and this is my first kindle/ ereader ever). However, reading it is no difficulty. I have found that most ‘smart phones’ with touch screens drive my insane as they seem to react to your finger just being over them. I have found this touch screen to be much more palatable.
They made a fundamental change to the SW that you probably won’t like. Otherwise it’s great!

Just got mine today as an upgrade from 7th generation. I know it’s only a little smaller and lighter, but the difference is noticeable (especially, if like me, you hold it over your head while lying on a couch). The typeface, in attempting to be more refined, is just a tiny bit less dark (less bold, if you will), but not a problem.
