Made with a 300ppi glare-free screen, the Kindle Paperwhite offers a display bright enough to mimic the effect of reading from an actual page, without the headache-inducing glare. The built-in adjustable light shifts to accommodate the setting.
Some shoppers love the Kindle Paperwhite more than the (much pricier) Apple iPad Mini. "...First of all, the display is gorgeous," raved one delighted five-star reviewer. "I love how crisp the lettering is and how the pages actually look like real paper. There's barely any glare on the screen when held up in sunlight —a huge advantage over the iPad Mini ...."
The Paperwhite even includes Audible, so you can listen to an audiobook if you’re on the move (or just want to give your eyes a rest).
Another valued feature is the Paperwhite’s automatic power off: Close the case over the screen, and your device goes to sleep, preserving your page and battery power. So effortless.
Shoppers across the board are super-enthusiastic about this Kindle.
Says one customer: “I absolutely love my kindle. It's become such a staple in my life that I normally just tuck it into my purse no matter where I'm going. It's waterproof so I take it to the beach and on hikes without worrying that it'll get ruined. It's also great for reading in the bath. The battery life is ridiculous. Sometimes I can go like 2-3 weeks without ever having to charge it… I wish I'd bought a kindle sooner. I haven't read this much since I was in elementary school and first discovered the library.”
Let this Kindle Paperwhite sale launch a new chapter, where you boost your literary intake, enjoy summer more and lighten your load.

A week of records at the Evian Championship finished with history being rewritten when Australian Minjee Lee overcame a seven-shot deficit to win her first major. In defeating the overnight leader, Korea’s Jeongeun Lee6, on the first extra hole at the French course, Lee emulated her idol, Karrie Webb, and Patty Sheehan with the largest come-from-behind victories in the 91 years of female majors. It has been quite the month for the Lee family. Three weeks ago Lee’s brother, Min Woo, won the Scott
The Hundred – cricket’s controversial new tournament – became embroiled in a sexism row on Sunday night after more than 13,000 fans at Lord’s were offered a full refund despite having seen an entire women’s match. Hundred tickets are sold as double-headers: a women’s match followed by a men’s match. And when Sunday’s men’s match – a local derby between London Spirit and the Oval Invincibles – was rained off without a ball being bowled, it triggered the clause for a full repayment to fans. A spok
Annemiek van Vleuten bemoaned another Olympic mishap and broke down in tears as she explained a calamitous oversight after finishing second in Sunday's women's road race when she presumed she had won. The Dutch rider, who had been a pre-race favourite and set her sights on a gold medal after a horrific fall ended her hopes in Rio de Janeiro five years ago, sprinted away in the closing stages from the chasing bunch to cross the line with a broad smile and fists pumping at the Fuji Speedway. She had been unaware of an early break by unknown Austrian Anna Kiesenhofer, who rode clear of the field to record a sensational upset and grab gold.
U.S. gold medallist for women's taekwondo Anastasija Zolotic said on Sunday she hoped her historic win would give taekwondo a boost in her home country, where other combat sports have had a bigger following than the Korean martial art form. In a surprise result, the 18-year-old won the Unites States' first gold medal women since taekwondo became a full-medal Olympic sport in 2000. "Hopefully in 2024 if I make it over there and win another gold medal and just keep grinding to LA, by then taekwondo will be all over the map," she said, referring to the next Summer Games in Paris in three years and Los Angeles in 2028.
BBC One was facing mounting anger over its Olympics coverage on Sunday after missing live coverage of Britain's first two medal-winners. Viewers were left incandescent by the corporation posting online about Chelsie Giles winning judo bronze before their delayed broadcast of the fight on BBC One had finished. Instead it was shown live on the red button. The semi-final victory that guaranteed Bradly Sinden a silver in Taekwondo was also delayed for home audiences on BBC One. Viewers were similarl
The conversations among Springbok supporters brunching in the glorious winter sunshine between Camps Bay to Green Point on Sunday no doubt reflected the half-time fears of millions of Lions supporters watching the game back at home on Saturday night. “It is just like watching a rerun of the World Cup final in that first half,” was the killer comment. With the half-time score at 12-3 and the Springboks dominating the collisions and edging the scrum battle, it was easy to draw comparisons with Eng
