One of two way:

1. On the home page of your Kindle, press Menu, Settings. At the bottom of the page, it will display your version number. If it begins with a 1 it's a first generation Kindle, 2 is a second generation, and 3 is the latest generation, or Kindle 3.

2. Go to http://www.amazon.com/myk, click on Manage Your Devices on the left. It will display your Kindle's version.

If you mean the model number that begins with a B, that's also on your settings screen, in device information.

I have kindle version 2.5.6 I bought thebookcover with reading light and it does not fit. I tried a few portable lights and I can't seem to get them to be effective. Any ideas.....

I use an overhead light. I didn't like the book light I got either.

Of course, I realize that doesn't work in some situations. When my brother bought the K3 for his wife's Christmas present, he refused to get the lighted cover because he didn't want her reading in bed. :-)

The lighted cover only works on the K3. Not only is the K3 smaller, it's the only Kindle with ports that are powered to run the light.

I bought the Octovo Solis for my K2, but I don't think they sell it for the K2 any longer. I did try 3 other lights before I settled on the Solis.

Margaret:
The cover with a light only works with the kindle 3. You have a kindle 2, so it won't work. Return the cover to Amazon...

Some people like the Mighty Brite light, but I didn't like it at all. Until I got my K3, I just kept my bedside table lamp on, or read in a different room. It wasn't perfect, but, like you, I couldn't find a clip on light that I liked.

My mom had the M-Edge e-luminator case for her K1, which had a slot to hook their e-luminator light into. She liked that. I never tried it, and I'm not sure if they make an equivalent case for the K2, but that might be worth looking into.

these covers claim to be compatible with the light:

http://www.medgestore.com/products/kindle2-prodigy.psp
http://www.medgestore.com/products/kindle2-go.psp

You can buy the light from the medgestore.com website, too.

Hope that helps. Like I said, I haven't used that light or system, but it might be helpful for you.

mkhan4818, you resurrected a discussion from 2 years ago to ask an unrelated question and didn't give us enough information to answer your question. Why don't you start with telling us what model of Kindle you have, what exactly you're trying to do, and what isn't working.

ETA: well, I guess it wasn't important, the post was just deleted.

You dredged up a three year old post to say that?

Here are some links to help you figure out which Kindle you have:

Do you have a Kindle Fire model? See if you can pick your model from this link:

Do you have a Kindle E-Reader model? See if you can pick your model from this link:

The information The Artist posted was valid at the time the post was asked on Jun 30, 2011. If the person who asked the question would have followed up with the information, then someone would have told him or her which Kindle they had with the the version or serial number. I'll also reply, if I wish.
