Designed for Comfortable Reading in Any Setting Unlike backlit tablets that shine in your eyes, the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite guides light toward the surface of the display with its built-in front light, so your eyes won't tire in the dark. With sharp, dark text and a glare-free screen, the Kindle Paperwhite reads like paper, even in bright sunlight. You can also adjust the screen's brightness to your ideal level and choose from eight text sizes for comfortable reading.
Lightweight Design for Hours of Uninterrupted Reading The Kindle Paperwhite is lighter than a paperback and thinner than a pencil, letting you comfortably read one-handed for extended periods of time. A long battery life means you can go up to eight weeks between charges, and with internal storage that can hold up to 1,000 books, you will never run out of things to read. Unlike tablets, the Paperwhite is specifically designed for reading, so you'll never be distracted by notifications and email alerts while you're immersed in your book.
Features that Go Beyond Basic Reading The Kindle Paperwhite offers a host of features designed to enrich your reading experience. Integrated dictionary, Wikipedia, and X-Ray functions let you research definitions, characters, settings, and more without leaving the page. Enhance your vocabulary and read more challenging books with Vocabulary Builder and Word Wise, and flip through text without losing your place with Page Flip. Take notes in the margins that you can easily edit, delete, or export directly to your computer.
Connect with Goodreads to see what your friends are reading, share highlights from your favorite books, and rate the books you've read. The Kindle can even estimate how much time it will take you to finish the book you're reading or the chapter you're on based on your personalized reading speed, so you know if you have' enough time to squeeze in those last few pages.
Enjoy Kindle Books on All Your Devices When you don't have your Kindle with you but you still want to read, the Kindle app for smartphones, tablets, and computers allows you to read your purchased Kindle books on any of your devices. Whispersync technology remembers where you left off in your book, so you can switch between your Paperwhite reader and portable devices seamlessly. You also never have to worry about losing a book, since your Kindle library is automatically backed up in the cloud, and you can re-download for free any books you've already purchased wirelessly.
Helps Kids Improve Reading Skills Kindle FreeTime gives kids a simple and fun way to enjoy reading, allowing them to earn achievement badges when they reach reading milestones. Kids reading their first chapter books can learn new words and read more challenging books using Word Wise, which provides short definitions above difficult words to help build vocabulary. Reports show parents how much time their kids have spent reading, how many words they've looked up, how many books they've read, and how many badges they've earned.
