Q: Two questions. I want to use one device for myself and my young child for reading books can this support that? Also, can this read aloud and/or highlight word to word for my child?

submitted by Jessica - 20 days ago
  • A: Hello Jessica, you want to know if the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 6.8” e-Reader with adjustable Light will support books for you and your child, and want to know if it will read out loud. The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 6.8” e-Reader with adjustable Light will support books for you and your child, the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 6.8” e-Reader with adjustable Light does not have a built in speaker to be able to perform the task of reading out loud. However with the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 6.8” e-Reader with adjustable Light you are able to connect a Bluetooth speaker or headphones to use Audible and listen to books. Hope this has answered your question. Have an amazing day!

Q: Can you preview books on kindle before you purchase the book. I have an old kindle and that service is not working any more.

submitted by Sheri - 4 months ago
  • A: Hi Sheri, thank you for your question. The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite comes with a feature called Look Inside The Book, which allows you to preview a limited number of pages of books. This means you can sample books before you purchase. Samples for print books allow you to search for words in the book to confirm that the book is just what they're looking for. Our agreements with publishers and copyright holders currently limit how much of the book is available for preview. Pages, or parts of pages, will be omitted due to copyright restrictions. Hopefully this helps. Have a wonderful day!

My husband bought this kindle for me during the mother's day weekend deal, and I've fallen in love! It makes it so easy to read, the back light is so convenient for reading at night! I have never had a kindle e ink reader so I was a little hesitant. If you're hesitant to buy it, just do it! You won't regret it! The only think I'd say I'd a down side is that it lags during setup.

I’ve heard so many good things about the kindle so I got one to try it out. I didn’t even use it for 30 minutes before I decided it was the worst purchase ever. It’s extremely slow and I can’t stand the blinking and flashing the screen does every time you touch it. I understand that’s how most e-readers work but my god it was so frustrating. I’ll stick to my iPad.

This is absolutely perfect. I love everything about it. The size is nice as well as the price. It also lights up so I can read in bed at bedtime, I thought only the paper white did that, but no, this updated basic kindle lights up just fine in the dark. Also, I found out that the basic kindles screen helps make the words more crisp than other kindle versions. That was a selling point for me. No complaints at all, only love!

I love my kindle, it's so convenient and portable. It has reignited my love for reading. I truly use it almoost everyday and I love that I can get ebooks for free from my library through Libby and read them on my kindle. However, my biggest complaints are with the screen. I keep my kindle in a soft kindle sleeve I bought off etsy but there are some times when I forget the sleeve and just throw it in my bag without it. As a result, I've noticed a few scratches on the screen. For the most part they are almost unoticeable except in certain lighting. I especially notice these scratches when reading in direct sunlight, the sunlight causes small shadows from the scratches onto the words on the screen and they can be distracting. I've heard the Kindle Oasis screen is made of a stronger glass that is more resistant to scratches so I hope they update all newer kindles models as such. The Kindle Paperwhite is great for reading outside in the sun (there's no glare!) and so convenient to read in a dark bedroom before bed. However, I've noticed that any indoor overhead lighting causes a bright glare on the screen. This glare is a bright circle of light that blocks words and makes it hard to read unless you move the screen around to avoid the glare.' Overall I do love my kindle, it's pricy for something that is easily scratched so I recommend buying one during Amazon's annual sale. And make sure to get a screen protector or a protective case!

I purchased the kindle with a lot of reservation; I was unsure if this would meet my needs. I had a nook for years that I never thought too highly of. I was honestly thinking of returning this after I hit purchase. Once it arrived, I was still hesitant. The size is perfect, that was a fear of mine. It also has a feature to change the rest size if you desire. I absolutely love that nothing else is on the kindle, it’s like snuggling up with a book without distractions or notifications.
