Kindle is purpose-built for reading
No glare in bright sunlight
Unlike reflective tablet and smartphone screens, Kindle Paperwhite reads like paper.
Charge monthly, not daily
Kindle won't leave you tethered to an outlet. A single charge lasts weeks, not days.
Lighter than a paperback
Kindle is lighter than most paperback books, making it easy and comfortable to hold in one hand for extended periods of time.
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.
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.
