Why you should buy this all-new Kindle?
- Thin and light for one-handed reading
- New—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 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.
