Is it easy to read a book on Kindle Fire while on the beach? Is the sun glare too much to see it?

It is almost impossible to read any backlit device (Fire, tablet, laptop) in the sun. If you want to read on the beach, I suggest getting a eInk Kindle. They are designed to be read in the sun.

Like I said in your other thread, You'll have a hard time seeing the screen in the bright sunshine.

I'd recommend a paper book for the beach. E-ink Kindles are great for reading outside, but I'd worry about it overheating, being stolen, or damaged by water/sunscreen/sand/etc.

Same answer as your other post. You cannot read the fire outdoors, the LCD light cannot compete with the sun. It is the same with any LCD device.
