What is an Amazon Kindle?
Kindle is the brand name of a range of devices dedicated to reading digital books. Amazon uses e-ink screens in its Kindle lineup which, as the name suggests, looks like a printed page. These touchscreens can only display in black and white, extending battery life to weeks and months. Kindle screens also don’t reflect sunlight, saving you the blinding glare that plagues those who try to use their smartphones and tablets outdoors. A built-in backlight means you’ll be able to keep reading through the evening and into the night.
Select water-resistant Kindle models can withstand immersion in up to two meters of fresh water for 60 minutes and 0.25 meters of salt water for up to 3 minutes. This means that you will be able to read in the bath, on an inflatable in the sea, on a boat, in the swimming pool without any worries, which is certainly not the case with a traditional paperback.

Kindle readers can adjust the font, font size, and alignment of their eBooks. Amazon has added support for OpenDyslexic, a typeface designed to avoid some of the most common misreads for people with dyslexia. Another feature, called Word Wise, will highlight the definition of difficult words between the lines of books, so you won’t have to interrupt the flow of the book to find out the meaning of a difficult word. Of course, if you need to find the full definition, you can press and hold any word to look up in the built-in dictionary.
Wikipedia entries can also be invoked on Kindle, which should be useful when reading non-fiction books. And transactions are also supported for those who read in different languages.
X-Ray, available on all Kindle models, makes it easy to keep track of people, places, and events in your book. So if you come across a name you can’t remember, just tap on it and the Kindle software will send you a quick prompt to remind you.
How to buy books on Kindle?
Kindle owners can purchase digital books from the Kindle Store, which is part of Amazon’s website.
Books can be purchased directly from the Kindle e-Reader via Wi-Fi or 4G mobile networks on models that support cellular, or from any web browser. If you buy a Kindle book on another device — a laptop, for example — you’ll still need an internet connection to your Kindle to download the title.
Unfortunately, Kindle owners are unable to purchase or download books from rival digital bookstores. For example, Barnes and Noble has a thriving e-book store, as does Rakuten. However, Kindle readers will be limited to Amazon’s offering. Considering Amazon runs the largest digital bookstore, with over 10 million titles, it’s not a bad store to limit yourself to.
Can you get discounts on Kindle books?
If you’ve never owned a Kindle before, you might be wondering how economical it will be to buy everything of your books from Amazon’s digital library. Luckily, the company regularly offers e-book discounts on its store. Every day, Amazon unveils a new Kindle Deal of the Day – usually a popular bestseller or critically acclaimed non-fiction title.
As well as its Daily Deal, Amazon is slashing the price of hundreds of digital books to 99p every week, with titles from top-selling authors regularly included in the windfall. You can browse the latest selection of Kindle Book Deals to find your next pageturner – without paying top dollar.
Of course, these discounted ebooks won’t be still be to your liking. However, if you continue to check these promotions regularly, you should soon be able to create a queue of Kindle eBooks on your eReader that you’ve wanted to read for a while… without paying more than 99p for each title.
In addition to discounts, Amazon also offers a number of popular books free. These tend to be classics, where copyright has expired and these works are now in the public domain. Some of the best-known works to enter the public domain (and now available for free download from the Kindle Store) include Gatsby the magnificent by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf In our time by Ernest Hemingway, The secret of fireplaces by Agatha Christie, and A girl of the samurai by Etsu Inagaki Sugimoto, to name a few.
Amazon has also commissioned a number of popular authors, including Stephen King and Margaret Atwood, to write novels that stand exclusive at the Kindle Store. Finalists will therefore need to switch to e-books to read everything these authors have published.
Kindle Unlimited usually costs £7.99 a month, but you can access the service without paying
