Kindle (8th Gen 2016) E-reader + Free Australian Accessories KIT
Thin and Light for One-Handed Reading
The 2016 Kindle 8th Generation is 11% thinner and 16% lighter than the previous generation , making it easy and comfortable to hold in one hand.
Reads Like Real Paper
Kindle uses actual ink particles and proprietary, hand-built fonts to create crisp text similar to what you see in a physical book. The blacks and whites on the screen are uniform, improving text and image quality.
No Blue Light
Because the Kindle display emits no light, you can read anytime without losing sleep.
No Glare in Bright Sunlight
The high-contrast touchscreen display eliminates glare in any setting – even direct sunlight.
Battery Lasts Weeks
Kindle doesn't need power to maintain a page of text, allowing you to read for weeks on a single charge.
Thousands of Books, No Distractions
Indulge your love of reading without interruptions like email alerts and push notifications.
Flip Through Books While Saving Your Place
Page Flip makes it easy to find pictures, charts, maps, and even your notes and highlights from different parts of a book. While you swipe to other pages or zoom out to see page thumbnails, Page Flip automatically saves the page you're reading, pinning it to the side of your screen so you'll never lose your place.
Sharp, Dark Text
The fonts, such as Bookerly, have been hand-tuned at the pixel level for high readability.
Export and Share Notes
It's now easy to export notes and highlights from a book to your e-mail, so you can always have them on-hand for reference. Receive your notes as an easily printable PDF that's ready to bring to your book club or a simple file you can open in your favorite spreadsheet app.
