Most readers adore the tactile experience a good book provides, however there are times when space, weight and life all get in the way. The highly practical 2019 Amazon Kindle eReader, with a built-in front light, enables you read to your heart’s content, on your terms. With a battery that will last about a month on a single charge and weighing only 174g, you can load up and enjoy hundreds of books, no matter where your travels take you.
With an adjustable front light, Amazon Kindle allows you to read at any time of day – without disturbing those close to you. This device has been purpose-built for reading, so there’ll be no messages or distractions. It features a 167 ppi (Pixel Per Inch), glare-free, touchscreen display that handily reads just like printed paper – even in if you’re in direct sunlight.
