A Booklover's New Best Friend

Thin and light for one-handed reading

New—Kindle is 11% thinner and 16% lighter than the previous generation Kindle, making it easy and comfortable to hold in one hand.

No eye strain, reads like real paper

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 text and image quality.

Unlike tablets, no blue light to disturb your sleep

Studies have shown that evening exposure to blue light from backlit screens like tablets and smartphones can suppress the body’s production of melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone that helps the body fall asleep. Because the Kindle display emits no light, you can read anytime without losing sleep.

No glare in bright sunlight

Unlike reflective tablet and smartphone screens, the high contrast touchscreen display eliminates glare in any setting—even direct sunlight.

Battery lasts weeks, not hours

A single battery charge allows you to read for weeks, not hours.

Millions of books, no distractions

Kindle is designed as a dedicated e-reader. Indulge your love of reading without interruptions like email alerts and push notifications.

Reads like a book

Flip through books while saving your place

Page Flip makes it easy to find pictures, charts, maps and even your notes and highlights from different parts of a book. While you swipe to other pages or zoom out to see page thumbnails, Page Flip automatically saves the page you’re reading, pinning it to the side of your screen so you’ll never lose your place.
