A booklover’s new best friend

Thin and light for one-handed reading

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

No glare in bright sunlight

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

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.

Battery lasts weeks, not hours

Kindle doesn’t need power to maintain a page of text, allowing you to read for weeks on a single charge.

Unlike tablets, no blue light to disturb your sleep

Recent studies have shown that evening exposure to blue light from devices with 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.

Thousands 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.

Kindle

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.

Take and share notes

Add margin notes that you can edit, delete, or even export from your device to your computer. Share highlighted sections and meaningful quotes on Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads, and see passages frequently highlighted by other Kindle readers.

Look it up instantly without leaving your page

Smart Lookup integrates entries from The New Oxford American Dictionary with information from X-Ray and Wikipedia, so you can access definitions, characters, settings, and more without losing your place.

Read more challenging books

Word Wise makes it easier to enjoy and quickly understand more challenging books. Short and simple definitions automatically appear above difficult words, so you can keep reading with fewer interruptions. Tap on a word to bring up a simple card with definitions, synonyms, and more. Available on many popular English language titles.

Build your vocabulary

Words looked up in the dictionary are automatically added to Vocabulary Builder to expand your knowledge and reinforce retention. Swipe through your vocabulary words, quiz yourself with flashcards, and instantly see those words in context.

Share your library

With Family Library, you and your family can access and easily share not only your own Kindle books, but also books from the linked Amazon account of a spouse or partner.

Lowest book prices, massive selection

Over a million titles are priced at $2.99 or less. Over 2 million titles are $9.99 or less.

Super basic Kindle, and I couldn’t be happier! This is your basic, bare bones e-reader. Nothing more. Nothing less. And it’s all I want. I know a lot of people love the lighted screens on the Paperwhite and other Kindles, but in my experience I’ve never really needed it. I’m not trying to start a war or anything, this is just my personal preference. The Kindle screen is perfectly easy to read during the day inside (with or without a lamp/light), during the day outside, or at night with your bedside lamp. Just like I’ve been doing with books all my life.It’s nearly identical to the previous basic Kindle, but Amazon has thankfully made this one a teensy bit smaller and (best of all) much, much lighter. And I love the fact that it now comes in white too.Other than that, there’s not much more to say. If you are new to the e-reader world, this Kindle is a good place to start. Or if you want a new e-reader that isn’t expensive, I’d also recommend it. But if you want a lighted screen, look elsewhere.

Good Value at $79 I am writing this from the perspective of being a long-time experienced Kindle user vs. someone brand new. From an overall perspective, considering the pricing of the Kindle with Special Offers at $79 vs. higher amounts for the different flavors of Kindle available today, this one is a bargain. If you have wanted to get your kids a Kindle to encourage reading as well as sharing of books but hesitated because $119 to $289+ is a lot of money to risk with a child, maybe at $79 this is your price point.
