Kindle is designed as a dedicated e-reader. Indulge your love of reading without interruptions such as e-mail alerts and push notifications.
A touchscreen interface makes it easier to use features such as X-Ray, Goodreads, built-in dictionary, highlighting and more. And with a glare-free screen that looks like real paper, you can read as easily in bright sunlight as in your living room.
Lighter than a paperback
Kindle is lighter than most paperback books, making it easy and comfortable to hold in one hand for extended periods of time.
Weeks-long battery life
Kindle does not require power to maintain a page of text, allowing you to read for weeks on a single charge.
Easy on the eyes
Every time your eyes switch from a bright screen to a dimmer, ambient room, your eyes have to adjust, which may result in fatigue. With Kindle, the page is the same brightness as everything else in the room, so no adjustment is needed.
Reads like the printed page
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 image quality.
Sharp, dark text
Enjoy text that reads like the printed page. All fonts have been hand-tuned at the pixel level for maximum readability and comfort.
Flip through without losing your place
With Page Flip, you can skim page-by-page, scan by chapter or skip to the end for a sneak peek without losing your place.
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.
Read comfortably in one hand
Lighter than most paperback books, hold Kindle comfortably in one hand for long reading sessions.
