  • The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite eReader allows you to download and read books from a selection of millions of titles, in unparalleled comfort.

    Crisper, cleaner screen

    This version of the Kindle Paperwhite offers an improved display with a 300 ppi resolution to make text appear as crisp as it would in print. The new Bookerly font makes onscreen reading even easier with its warm, contemporary look.

    Best of all, the screen prevents glare, so you can read even in bright sunlight. Because it guides light towards the display surface, the eReader allows you to read in the dark without straining your eyes. There are eight text sizes to suit your vision and allow for long-term comfortable reading.

    Ultra-long battery life

    With one charge, the Kindle Paperwhite can offer up to six weeks of battery life, so you can read for as long as you like. It's built to be thinner than a pencil and lighter than a paperback book, so you can carry it around for effortlessly comfortable reading.

    Uninterrupted reading bliss

    Because it's purpose-made to be an eReader, the Kindle Paperwhite won't distract you from enjoying your books with emails alerts or push notifications.

    You'll never lose your place as Whispersync technology synchronises the last page you read, bookmarks and annotations across all your devices so you can pick up right where you were last reading. Page Flip lets you skim each page, scan by chapter or even skip to the end, all without losing your place.

    Wireless connections and features

    Connect your Kindle Paperwhite to your home WiFi network or WiFi hotspots with ease – and if you don't have your Kindle with you, simply download the Kindle app for your smartphone, tablet or computer to read your collection on other devices wherever you are.

    The Smart Lookup feature builds a full dictionary with X-Ray and Wikipedia into your eReader, allowing you to access definitions, characters, settings and more – without losing your place or having to leave your page. Family Library lets you and your family access and share your Kindle books and other books from the appropriate linked Amazon account.

    Making reading simpler

    At a glance, you'll be able to see how long it will take to finish a chapter or book – the Time to Read function can be personalised according to your reading speed, updating constantly as your speed and habits change. Translate any word or highlighted section into other languages with a single tap thanks to Bing Translator.

    You can make and share notes for exporting to your computer and sharing on Facebook and Twitter. Word Wise helps you to enjoy and understanding more challenging books quickly, with brief definition above difficult words for more fluent reading. Tap on words for definitions, synonyms and more.

    Other great features include X-Ray for exploring deeper into a books ideas, characters, places and other topics; and Vocabulary Builder to help expand your knowledge and word retention.

    With instant access to millions of titles and a huge range of accessibility features, the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite eReader makes reading even better.
