Highest resolution e-reader display
With twice as many pixels as the previous generation, Kindle Paperwhite has an improved high-resolution 300 ppi display for crisp, laser quality text.
No glare in bright sunlight
Unlike reflective tablet and smartphone screens, Kindle Paperwhite reads like paper.
Read comfortably with one hand
Lighter than a paperback, comfortably hold Kindle Paperwhite in one hand for those times when you can’t put the book down.
Charge monthly, not daily
Kindle Paperwhite won't leave you tethered to an outlet. A single charge can last up to six weeks (based on a half hour of reading per day with wireless turned off and the light setting at ten).
Won't tire your eyes in the dark
Kindle Paperwhite guides light toward the surface of the display with its built-in front light—unlike back-lit tablets that shine in your eyes—so you can read comfortably for hours without eyestrain. Adjust your screen's brightness for great reading in any light.
Next-generation reading experience
Kindle Paperwhite offers Bookerly, an exclusive font crafted from the ground up for reading on digital screens. Warm and contemporary, Bookerly is inspired by the artistry of the best fonts in modern print books, but is hand-crafted for great readability at any font size.
Typesetting engine lays out words just as the author intended for beautiful rendering of pages. With improved character spacing and the addition of hyphenation, justification, kerning, ligatures, and drop cap support, our best-in-class typography helps you read faster with less eyestrain.
Enjoy reading with larger font sizes without compromising your reading experience. Page layout and margins automatically adapt to work well at even the largest font sizes. The typography and layout improvements are available on over half a million books, including many best sellers, with thousands more being added every week.
Lose yourself in a book
By design, Kindle Paperwhite 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.
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.
Sharp, dark text
Enjoy text that reads like the printed page. Our fonts, such as Bookerly, have been hand-tuned at the pixel level for maximum readability.
Export and share notes
It’s now easy to export notes and highlights from a book to your e-mail, so you can always have them on-hand for reference. Receive your notes both as an easily printable PDF that’s ready to bring to your book club, and as a simple file you can open in your favorite spreadsheet app.

I'm here to tell you that the kindle is the perfect balance of book and digital format.
Yes, you should buy a kindle. Get the paperwhite with no ads. You're welcome.
I love physical books too, I'm with you. But I know myself, and I know that once I forget to take the book I'm reading with me, that's it. I'll start another book and rarely finish the first. I also know if I try and read on my phone or iPad that I'll get distracted and start wondering about what's happening on the internet (Instagram's not gonna scroll ITSELF). Either way I'm not finishing the book.
The kindle takes the best of both worlds and mashes them together. The e ink display is honestly incredible. I wish iPhones had an e ink display. It really looks just like a printed page. So you get the experience of reading a physical paper book, but with the perks of being digital.
- Share what book you're reading to Goodreads, Facebook, or twitter (so you can look SMORT)
- Built in dictionary (so you can learn the proper spelling of the word SMORT)
- Export your highlights as a PDF
Plus, it'll also sync with the kindle app on your phone so you can squeeze in the final few pages of the chapter while you're in the bathroom (don't pretend you don't do that. You're either on your phone or you're reading the febreeze ingredients)
READING IN BED
The backlight looks great. It's a perfect size. And because it's one page at a time, you overcome another annoyance of physical books: you can read laying down in bed without the awkward "I just need to hold the book weird like this for a second while I finish the left page, then I'll be on the right page and can relax" situation. It's great.
You can check out library books digitally without leaving your house. And yes, you can make highlights and export those as a PDF (to answer your next question, yes, you could technically highlight the whole book, but that would take more time than it's worth).
ADS OR NAH?
Get the one without ads. Remember the problem with reading on your phone? Distractions. Why would you buy a device that ONLY does one thing exceptionally well (isolated reading) and then ruin the experience with ads about products you should buy? Now you're thinking about "oh right, I gotta get my oil changed" or "what am I gonna make for dinner?" instead of whether Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy are really ever going to get together.
And no, you don't need a more expensive kindle. This one works great and the other ones don't give you much more for the money. Get the wifi only model (please, you're REALLY going to use the 3G to download books on the go? Get real).
And yes, this is the best e-reader out there. Come on, it's Amazon. ANY book you want is a few taps away.
WHAT YOU WANT
Kindle Paperwhite (wifi only, cuz really, you're gonna use 3G??) with no ads.
You're furiggin welcome.
Now I have had my new Kindle for 2 1/2 months, and the internal clock will no longer keep time. The device is, of course, still under warranty, but it took a couple of hours on the phone (with folks I had a great deal of difficulty understanding) before Amazon finally agreed to send me a new device. Frankly, the amount of time I spent with Kindle Support (my time and theirs) was worth more than the price of a new device.
What was once a great customer service organization has become more of an obstacle than a help. It seems almost as though the goal is to frustrate the customer to the point where he/she just gives up and lives with whatever problem they have. I am very sorry to have to say this.
I’m very disappointed not only in the product but in the fact that after a year when it started to malfunction that I didn’t have the option to ship it at my own cost to be fixed. A new e-reader (same model) cost $189. Am I to just purchase a new one and hope that in a year it doesn’t malfunction?
Luckily, it can....and it makes for a wonderful combination for parents who want to track their kids' reading while still taking advantage of free library loans.
Here are the steps after having checked out the book:
1. Go to "Manage Your Content and Devices"
2. Click on the "Actions" button (labeled "...") next to the library-borrowed book.
3. Choose "Manage Family Library"
4. A small dialogue box should pop up with your child's Freetime profile. Click the "Add to Library" button next to it.
5. Sync the Paperwhite....and the book shows up in their Freetime account!
I've confirmed this with a borrowed e-book on my son's Paperwhite.
Now Amazon needs to update their help pages and give these instructions.
