The all-new Amazon Kindle is 11% thinner and 16% lighter than the previous generation Kindle, making it easy and comfortable to hold in one hand. Unlike reflective tablet and smartphone screens, the high contrast touchscreen display eliminates glare in any setting—even direct sunlight. 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. Kindle doesn’t need power to maintain a page of text, allowing you to read for weeks on a single charge. The Amazon Kindle is designed as a dedicated e-reader. Indulge your love of reading without interruptions like email alerts and push notifications.

Returned it. Thought I could save some money and do without the backlight... ended up returning it for the one with the backlight. It functioned well and had good picture and speed, I just couldn't live without the backlight.see moreof the reviewer's review

This is a nice bare-bones reading device. Easy to set up and use. My greatest issue is that it isn't back lit so it can't be used w/o a light on in the room. Returning it an purchasing a paperwhite instead.see moreof the reviewer's review

I bought this because it was $30.00 off for the early Black Friday sale and it doesn't need to be charged every day like my fire tablet. (Which is very annoying to have to stop reading because the battery is dying). This stays charged for days! This works great during the day and I bought a Energize...see moreof the reviewer's review

I am 100% happy with my purchase. I caught it on sale at a really good price. I am normally a real book person, but I have a 1 year old who loves ripping up pages. The Kindle prevents that, it's extremely portable (it fits better in my purse than a giant book), and I have it loaded with lots of book...see moreof the reviewer's review

Very light and easy to read on. Could have more pixles like the Paperwhite, but looks still pretty much like a book. Battery lasts forever, but without a sale it´s a little bit overpriced.

Great, lightweight, easy to read from. The home page also suggests books you might like based on your recent purchases or browser history. I had a first addition kindle so this was a big set up.see moreof the reviewer's review
