"Light, easy to use Kindle"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is my first kindle and I love it. So easy to read the backlite screen in all situations and small and light to handle.

"An excellent product"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This device is so easy to use and doesn't take long to learn how to use it. As promised it's just like reading from a paperback; the etched glass screen has a slightly matte feel to the touch, and the display can be adjusted to your preference, including the strength of the back lighting, the size, boldness, and style of the font, and the page layout. This is perfect if you find that you have too many books and not enough space, which is the reason I purchased the Kindle Paper white 3. I highly recommend it!

"Functional and so far so good"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A lot smaller than expected but not too tiny so it's fine. Loads slowly. Otherwise great!

"1st time user love it, easy to read touch screen too sensitive."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Very happy with the medium , I am hooked, but touch screen super sensitive , a mere inadvertent touch turns the page/s and it occasionally freezes, even the on/off button freezes. The dictionary was a surprising value added bonus but my first attempt to use it was disappointing, not the kindles fault – odd word perhaps. Still finding my way around using it.

"Got me back into reading!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I am not much of a reader, but I love reading with my Kindle. I bought it on a whim knowing that the last time I read a book for pleasure was over 5 years ago and have loved it. It makes the buying and book readign simple and much nicer than looking at any computer screen!

Highest resolution e-reader display

New—With twice as many pixels as the previous generation, the all-new Kindle Paperwhite has an improved high-resolution 300 ppi display for crisp, laser quality text. No other e-reader offers a higher resolution display.

No glare in bright sunlight

Unlike reflective tablet and smartphone screens, Kindle Paperwhite reads like paper. Show me

Read comfortably with one hand

Lighter than a paperback, comfortably hold Kindle Paperwhite in one hand for those times when you can’t put the book down.

Charge monthly, not daily

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

Won't tire your eyes in the dark

Kindle Paperwhite guides light toward the surface of the display with its built-in front light—unlike back-lit tablets that shine in your eyes—so you can read comfortably for hours without eyestrain. Adjust your screen's brightness for great reading in any light.

Next-generation reading experience

New—The all-new Kindle Paperwhite now offers Bookerly, an exclusive font crafted from the ground up for reading on digital screens. Warm and contemporary, Bookerly is inspired by the artistry of the best fonts in modern print books, but is hand-crafted for great readability at any font size.

Enjoy reading with larger font sizes without compromising your reading experience. Page layout and margins automatically adapt to work well at even the largest font sizes. The new typography and layout improvements are available on over half a million books, including many best sellers, with thousands more being added every week.

Lose yourself in a book

By design, Kindle Paperwhite is purpose-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.
