How do you read outdoors in the sunlight?

I assume you mean with your Fire? It's difficult, since it's a backlit lcd screen. I have read posts that state if you turn the brightness all the way up it helps. It also helps to find some shade.

The same technology that allows you to read in the dark without ambient light makes it hard to read the screen in sunlight.

Get a Eink Kindle like the Paperwhtie.

The Fires are LCD screens and cannot be easily read outdoors, it is just like every other LCD device on the market.

I put on dark glasses and open my book. Or, I just use my Kindle Basic or my Kindle Keyboard. But, if I were asking a question about using a specific Kindle device I would be courteous enough to tell the people whom I am hoping will help which Kindle device I am asking about. It does seem that when a user doesn't tell us which device it is, you can safely assume it's the Fire, a game-playing device, and not one of the e-ink models, an ebook-reading device.

In a comfy chair, with my e-ink Kindle. And a nice mojito or iced mocha, depending on my mood.

On a beach, sitting in a beach chair with a pair of sunglasses. But always on an e-ink Kindle. The Fire does not show up well in bright sunlight.

I usually sit in a chair by the pool and when I get too hot, I will take a dip, putting my Kindle 3 on the table.

Good plan. Setting it on the chair is a bad idea. Ask my first KK.

Under my walnut tree with a cold glass of ice tea with just a touch of lemon.
