The Kindle paperwhite edition is an e-book reader that reads just like a book. At 300ppi resolution, images and text appear laser clear, just like a printed book. This e-book reader is also lighter than a book and can be operated easily with one hand. A single charge sees battery life last up to six weeks at a time (based on half an hour of reading per day). Furthermore, you can read comfortably day or night with the Kindle’s built-in front light. You can also enjoy reading with larger font sizes on over half a million books (including many bestsellers, with more titles being added each week). With these books, page layouts will automatically adjust to your chosen size of the text.
The ‘Page Flip’ feature allows you to flick through your e-book while saving your place on the page you were last reading – Your own virtual bookmark! The saved page will be pinned to the side of the screen so you can get back to it with ease.
Export your own Notes
You can now export excerpts from books to e-mail with ease, allowing you to always have them on hand for reference. These can also be printed – Perfect for bringing along to your book club.
Time to Read
This amazing feature adapts to your reading style and speed whenever you use the Kindle. ‘Time to Read’ will give you estimations on how long it should take you to finish a chapter or a book, based on your personal reading speed.
You can tap any passage or excerpt from a book to instantly translate it into many different languages.
