Reads like a book...

Touchscreen display

New — 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.

No distractions

Kindle is purposely designed as a dedicated e-reader. Indulge your love of reading without interruptions such as e-mail alerts or push notifications.

Look it up instantly

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

Enhanced search

New — It's even easier to find what you are looking for by combining and previewing results from your Library and the Kindle Store on the same page.

Share your library with family

New — Family Library links your Amazon account to that of your spouse or partner. For the first time, you and your family can access and easily share not only your own Kindle books, but also books from the Amazon account of a spouse or partner.

Read more challenging books

New — Word Wise makes it easier to enjoy and quickly understand more challenging books. Short and simple definitions appear above difficult words automatically, so you can continue reading with fewer interruptions. Tap on a word to bring up a simple card with definitions, synonyms and more. You can adjust the number of hints you see with a simple slider.

Expanded X-Ray for books

X-Ray lets you explore the “Bones of the Book.” See all the passages across a book that mention relevant ideas, fictional characters, historical figures, places, or topics of interest. X-Ray's new timeline view lets readers flip through important passages easily to remind themselves of what's happened in the book, or navigate easily through images.

Squeeze in that last chapter

See at a glance how long it will take to finish a chapter or book. Time to Read is personalised based on your reading speed, and is constantly updated as your speed and habits change.

Enhance your vocabulary

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

Adjust your text size

Choose from eight text sizes to prevent tired eyes and keep you reading longer.

Organise your books

Arrange your books into customised categories by using Cloud Collections.

Never be without a book again

Shop Amazon's expansive selection, choose a title and begin reading your next book in under 60 seconds - no computer required.

Carry your entire library

Kindle holds thousands of books, so you'll never have to leave your favourite titles behind.

Pick up where you left off

Whispersync technology synchronises your last page read, bookmarks and annotations across all your devices so you can pick up exactly where you left off reading.

Translate passages instantly

Tap any word or highlight a section to translate it instantly into other languages, including Spanish, Japanese and more. Translations are provided by Bing Translator.

Share with friends on Goodreads

NEW - With Goodreads on Kindle, you can connect with the largest online community of book lovers, see what your friends are reading, share highlights, and rate the books you read. Some Goodreads on Kindle features are only available when connected to Wi-Fi.

Fewer distractions, more reading

Kindle is designed for reading, which means zero distractions for kids. With Kindle, they can look up definitions as they read to build their vocabulary and increase the font size for easier reading. They can read thousands of books for free, including classics such as Treasure Island. And they can easily take their books with them without loading up a heavy backpack.

Boost their vocabulary

Kindle makes it easy for young readers to add new words to their vocabulary. Words looked up on Kindle are added to Vocabulary Builder automatically, where kids can quiz themselves with flash cards to reinforce new word retention.

Read more challenging books

NEW—For kids reading their first chapter books, Word Wise, available on many popular English language titles, makes it easier to enjoy and quickly understand more challenging books. Short and simple definitions appear above difficult words automatically, so they can keep reading with fewer interruptions. Tap on a word to bring up a simple card with definitions, synonyms and more. They can adjust the number of hints they see with a simple slider.

Kindle for Kids

Encourage children to read even more. Kindle for Kids lets you create personalised profiles for children, and give them access to titles from your collection of books. Children are rewarded with achievement badges when they reach their goals. A progress report keeps parents updated on total time spent reading, number of words looked up, badges earned and books read.
