The Amazon Kindle is the best ebook reader on the market. Loaded with features and once it is packed full of Amazon Kindle ebooks, this device will change your reading experience forever. The benefits are seemingly endless but see below for the highlights and links to the reviews and specifications for more details.
The Kindle will fit in your pocket, is easily portable and weighs in at less than 6 ounces - perfect for slipping into your bag or day pack.
Just add Amazon Kindle Ebooks
With storage for up to 1,400 books, PDFs and personal documents, it is unlikely you will ever run out of books again.
With over 800,000 kindle ebooks priced at less than $9.99, Kindle ebooks are almost always cheaper than the hard copy. Meanwhile, Kindle books are often much cheaper than ebooks for other devices.
Free ebooks for Kindle
Once you have got your fix on the latest new releases, the Kindle store offers literally millions of free out-of-copyright titles, including classics such as Pride and Prejudice. Couple these with the thousands of other free Kindle ebooks published daily through the Amazon store and you will likely have too many books and not enough time to read them all.
The e-ink display reads like paper so it’s easy on the eyes, with no glare even in direct sunlight – which makes the Kindle perfect for summer reading on the beach or by the pool. You’ll be able to enjoy your Kindle anywhere you enjoyed your old hard copy or paper-back book.
Built in Wi-Fi
The Kindle allows you to connect to Wi-Fi networks at home or on the road. In a Wi-Fi zone you can think of a book, access the Kindle store and download it straight to your device in under 60 seconds. The Kindle also comes with an experimental browser to allow you to surf the web in a Wi-Fi zone when you are not near a computer.
As an added bonus, enjoy free Wi-Fi access at AT&T hotspots across the U.S. for shopping and downloading Kindle content — no AT&T registration, sign-in or password required.
One charge with the wireless-connection turned off will last up to a month, based on average use of reading it 30 minutes a day. Battery life will of course vary depending on the amount of Wi-Fi usage including shopping at the Kindle store, browsing the Internet and downloading new content – but this is definitely not an electronic device that needs charging very often.
Customize your device
The wide range of Kindle covers and Kindle accessories allow you to personalize your device. You can add gel skins, leather covers, sleeves, designer covers or reading lights - the opportunities are endless.
