Thin and light for one-handed reading
Now 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 latest Kindle reads like paper – no annoying glare, even in bright sunlight.
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.
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.
Unlike tablets, no blue light to disturb your sleep
Recent studies by the Harvard Health Publication have shown that evening exposure to blue light from backlit screens such as 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 any sleep.
Kindle is purposely designed as a dedicated e-reader. Indulge your love of reading without interruptions such as e-mail alerts or push notifications.

‘ No, I like a book to hold ‘
but after struggling to find my type of reading material, in a hotel, on a recent holiday, I decided to buy a reasonably priced one.
I love it, I can hold it in one hand like a book. As soon as I’ve finished one book I have another one ready to go. It will be fantastic to take on future holidays, not having to search for hotel book collection . I can slip it into a handbag in case I’m stuck anywhere. Books are cheaper than paperbacks and I don’t have to search charity shops. If you are hesitant like I was, I certainly recommend this one.
The solution was simple and remedied all my faults within a few minutes. If you know your way around Amazon's website and your Kindle, with your Kindle connected to wi-fi, you need to deregister the problematic Kindle, then go to your Kindle and re-register it. Nothing will be lost, all or most will come back on your 'Download' home page on your Kindle – anything missing (usually individual collection folders) tap the 'All' page, then tap any Collections or books from the cloud to download – it will then go to your 'Downloaded' home page.
If you need step by step instructions, follow what I did below. You will need to know your Amazon sign-in email address and password :
Firstly, go to your Amazon Account, and under Digital Content & Devices click Content & Devices. This opens a page 'Content' and shows the books and content on your device(s). Near the top of the page (below the black Amazon header strip) is 'Devices' – click it.
On the left hand side of the page below your name and Kindle, there is 'deregister' – click it. This will immediately deregister your Kindle from your account. Don't worry, nothing is lost, all purchased books are held in your account.
Next, open your Kindle, connect it to wi-fi, and go to settings (the three dots in the top right hand corner,) and tap on 'settings'. Then tap on 'Your Account' and re-register using the email address and password you use to sign in to Amazon.
If anything seems to be missing (usually a collection) from your 'Downloaded' page on your Kindle, go to the 'All' page (next to the word Downloaded) and anything there which wasn't automatically downloaded can be tapped on and will be downloaded from the cloud.
Once re-registered, the Kindle's erratic problems should have disappeared.
I would think (but not tried) that this would work for the Touch, Paperwhites, Voyage and Oasis. I haven't used a Fire but think that that one is very different from the dedicated readers and maybe doesn't get the same problems I read about for the other Kindle versions.
I hope this has helped in taming your naughty Kindle.
One other handy little tip – if the reading time feature seems to be showing the wrong estimated time (mine often gets to about 3 hours left and then suddenly halves the time to something like 1 hour 27 minutes) to re-set the time while the book you are reading is open, press the top of the page and click search. In the search bar type ;ReadingTimeReset (make sure it is exactly as shown with a semi-colon at the start, the three capital letters and no spaces.) It will say “No results for . .” - now click 'home' and go back to your book. When you start reading again it will say at the bottom “Learning reading time” and is therefore re-set.
I TRIED TO GET TO DEVICE HELP BUT I CANNOT FIND THE SOLUTION ON HOW TO ENLARGE THE INSERTS OR DIAGRAMS IN THE BOOK
