A book lover's new best friend

Thin and light for one-handed reading

Now 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 latest Kindle reads like paper – no annoying glare, even in bright sunlight.

Reads like the printed page

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 image quality.

Battery lasts weeks, not hours

Kindle does not require power to maintain a page of text, allowing you to read for weeks on a single charge.

No distractions

Kindle is purposely designed as a dedicated e-reader. Indulge your love of reading without interruptions such as e-mail alerts or push notifications.
