    Crisper, cleaner screen

    The Kindle Paperwhite has a screen that reads like real paper without any glare, even in direct sunlight. Enjoy all your favourite books in comfort with the 300 ppi resolution screen that makes text appear just like it does in print.
     
    Perfect for reading at night without straining your eyes, the Kindle Paperwhite has a built in light that can be adjusted to suit you, evenly illuminating the screen for every setting. Designed with a range of font sizes, you can enjoy reading without straining your eyes. The layout and typography is automatically adjusted so that each page looks great at every size.

    Ultra-long battery life

    With just one charge the Kindle Paperwhite can last for up to six weeks, so that you're not left searching for a charger when you're on holiday.

    Thinner than a pencil and lighter than a paperback book, the Kindle is designed to be light enough to hold in one hand comfortably.

    Wireless connections and features

    Browse Amazon's expansive selection of over four million books and discover new titles with Goodreads straight from your Kindle. By connecting to your home wireless network or a Wi-Fi hotspot, you can download any book you like in under 60 seconds without having to manually connect to a computer.

    With the Kindle app, you can sync what you're reading across all your devices so that you can stop reading on your phone and continue where you left off on your Kindle. And with Whispersync technology, all your bookmarks and annotations are saved too.

    Making reading simpler

    See how long a book will take you to read at a glance with the Time to Read function, which is personalised according to your reading speed. And if you want to skip ahead or skim forward a few pages, Page Flip remembers where you started so you don't lose your place.

    Read books or passages in other languages with Bing Translator, which will translate any highlighted word or section with a single tap. And if you want to make notes, you can share them on Facebook and Twitter or just save them for your own reference.

    When children are starting to read their first chapter books, Word Wise makes it easier for them to understand new words, as short and simple definitions appear above the more challenging parts.

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