Traveling always involved a lot of waiting and it is so much more enjoyable when you have a book with you. With our Kindle E-readers along, we are never bored.

Since luggage space and weight is often a challenge, especially on longer trips, we can have literally hundreds of books with us at all times using much less space and weight than even one paperback.

The Kindle Paperwhite is our top E-reader choice. They go everywhere we do and have never let us down. Amazon has an incredibly vast Kindle book collection- one that is growing all the time. Did you know that you can download books for free from you library and read them on your Kindle? It is really easy and all you need is the free account from your library.

Unlike LED tablets, the Kindle Paperwhite is designed to deliver the best reading experience. Kindle Paperwhite has no screen glare in bright sunlight, a battery that lasts weeks, not hours, and a built-in light that allows you to read without eyestrain.

Other features of the Paperwhite

Read comfortably with either hand

Lighter than a paperback, it is easy to comfortably hold the Kindle Paperwhite in either hand and turn the pages with just a touch of your finger.

Take and share notes

Add margin notes that you can edit, delete, or even export from your device to your computer. Share highlighted sections and meaningful quotes on Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads, and see passages frequently highlighted by other Kindle readers.

Read more challenging books

Word Wise makes it easier to enjoy and quickly understand more challenging books. Short and simple definitions automatically appear above difficult words, so you can keep reading with fewer interruptions. Tap on a word to bring up a simple card with definitions, synonyms, and more. Available on many popular English language titles.

Charge monthly, not daily

Kindle Paperwhite won’t leave you tethered to an outlet. A single charge can last up to three weeks (based on one hour of reading per day with wireless turned off and the light setting at ten).

Distraction free reading

By design, Kindle Paperwhite is built for reading and creates a sanctuary so you can lose yourself in a book. Unlike tablets and phones, Kindle doesn’t distract you with social media, emails, and text messages.

Look it up instantly without leaving your page

Smart Lookup integrates entries from The New Oxford American Dictionary with information from X-Ray and Wikipedia, so you can access definitions, characters, settings, and more without losing your place. It will also translate words in foreign languages

Build your vocabulary

Words looked up in the dictionary are automatically added to Vocabulary Builder to expand your knowledge and reinforce retention. Swipe through your vocabulary words, quiz yourself with flashcards, and instantly see those words in context.

Lowest book prices, massive selection

Over a million titles are priced at $2.99 or less. Over 2 million titles are $9.99 or less.

Set goals and celebrate with achievement badges

Kids can read books in a simple, fun, and safe environment designed specifically for them with Kindle FreeTime. Kids are rewarded with achievement badges when they reach their reading milestones. A progress report keeps parents updated on total time spent reading, number of words looked up, badges earned, and books read.

Share your library

With Family Library, you and your family can access and easily share not only your own Kindle books, but also books from the linked Amazon account of a spouse or partner.
