The all-new Kindle Paperwhite features a sleek, flush-front design and a back made of soft, grippable material so it rests easily in your hand.

  • Read books your way—Personalize your ideal reading settings on your Kindle device with a selection of fonts, font sizes, boldness levels, and text alignment options.

  • Worry-free archive—Automatically backs up your Kindle books in the cloud so you never need to worry about losing your books—re-download your books wirelessly anytime for free.
  • Time to Read—Tells you how much time it will take to finish a chapter, or a book based on your personalized reading speed.
