A Booklover's New Best Friend

Thin and light for one-handed reading

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.

Every Kindle E-reader
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.

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.

Read comfortably with one hand

Lighter than a paperback, comfortably hold Kindle in one hand for those times when you can’t put the book down.

Lose yourself in a 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.
