Read Kindle Books with Alexa

You can ask Alexa to read eligible Kindle books in your library.

When you ask Alexa to read your Kindle book, Alexa picks up from where you left off in the book on another compatible Amazon device or Kindle reading app. Alexa reads Kindle books eligible for Text-to-Speech technology used for Wikipedia articles, news articles, and calendar events.

Alexa reads eligible books:

  • Purchased from the Kindle Store
  • Borrowed from Kindle Owners' Lending Library
  • Borrowed from Kindle Unlimited
  • Shared with you in your Family Library

Alexa does not support the following Kindle content and features:

  • Comics and graphic novels
  • Narration speed control
  • Immersion reading

Control book reading with your voice

Say, “Play the Kindle book, '[title]'” or "[Pause / Skip / Stop / Resume]."

To find eligible books in the Alexa app:

  1. From the Menu, select Music & Books.
  2. Under Books select Kindle.
  3. Choose an available device from the drop-down before selecting a title.

Note: Alexa on Fire tablets won't show the text of a book onscreen.

Tip: To go to different chapters in a Kindle book, select the Now Playing bar in the Alexa app when Alexa reads your Kindle book, and then select Queue. You can then choose a chapter from the list.
