Reads Like Real Paper, No Glare Even in Bright Sunlight
Kindle uses an electronic ink screen that looks and reads like real paper. The matte screen reflects light like ordinary paper and uses no backlighting, so you can read as easily in bright sunlight as in your living room. Unlike tablet screens, Kindle has no glare.
Lighter Than a Paperback
Less than 6 ounces, Kindle is lighter than most paperback books, and weighs half as much as many tablets, making it easy and comfortable to hold in one hand for extended periods of time.
One-Month Battery Life
Kindle also has the advantage of significantly lower power consumption than tablets. Kindle does not require power to maintain a page of text, allowing you to read for up to a month on a single charge, with wireless off and a half hour of reading per day, versus hours on a tablet or smart phone.
Sharp, Clear Text
Kindle uses actual ink particles and proprietary, hand-built fonts to create crisp, print-like text similar to what you see in a physical book. The screen's 100% aperture ratio means no gaps between pixels. The blacks and whites on the screen are uniform, improving image quality.
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 there's no adjustment needed.
Read in Any Position
When you read for long periods of time, you often switch positions to get more comfortable. Kindle has a uniform contrast ratio that does not change with your viewing angle, so you can read in any position.
Millions of books, newspapers, and magazines, including the latest best sellers, Kindle Singles, and more.

Millions of titles in the public domain, such as Pride and Prejudice, are available for free.

Amazon Kindle 4
Amazon wants to own the eBook market, and they've been well on their way. With the $79 Kindle, they're much closer. The newest Kindle, aka Kindle 4 is only $79 "with offers" and $109 without....Read more
Extremely affordable and portable, good Pearl E Ink display
Navigation not a joy without touchscreen or keyboard, only basic features
Amazon Kindle review (2011)
The latest Kindle forgoes bells and whistles such as a touchscreen or physical keyboard, making it one bare-bones device. Still, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better e-reader at this price....Read more
Relatively inexpensive, Pocket-sized, Fast processor
No touchscreen / physical keyboard, No memory card slot, Not ideal for one-handed reading
Will buy again if need be!
Bought because I had one before that I dropped and the screen messed up. Love the size and weight. No extra gadgets but works perfectly for a great reader!...Read more
I have a Fire HD 8.9, which I LOVE! I've been carrying it to and from work with me but since I'm not on a network at work all I do is read on it so I wanted to try the basic Kindle. I got this for a great price and I love it....Read more
Love my new Kindle!!!!
I am an avid reader, and have owned a Kindle since 2009. When my Kindle developed some operational problems a while ago I knew it was time to get a new one. This new Kindle is smaller (it took about 5 minutes to get used to it) and lighter weight. Transfe...Read more
Very good idea to encourage life-long reading
This product is truly a game changer when it comes to reading. There are lots of books that you can purchase from Amazon for this device. A large number of US libraries participate in the Overdrive program where you can borrow a fixed number of books (for...Read more

Looks Like A Book!
Some people may be hesitant about e-readers because they prefer the look and feel of a real book, but the Kindle really does look like a book! You easily forget it's a piece of technology! It stores so many books, making it easy to take books with you on...Read more
Amazon Kindle 4: Kindling my love of books again!
My kindle!...Read more
Cheap, stores a lot of books, lightweight
Needs charging unlike a real book, no backlight, keyboard function is annoying
Ok...I confess...I am officially a Kindle Addict!
So after reading loads of reviews on them, watching people whip theirs out on the tube in front of me, and get stuck in and just generally feeling rather envious I finally succumbed to get a kindle....Read more
easy to use, really long lasting battery life, cheap, durable, free books
small screen so change pages often, bit flimsy, books are expensive
Amazon Kindle 4: Dubious beforehand.... but now wouldn't be without my Kindle ...
I received my kindle as a gift from friends before I went on Maternity leave. It's not something I would have bought for myself, as I adore bookshops, libraries and actual physical books. So I was a bit dubious when I received it at how much I would use i...Read more
