The Amazon Kindle (2022) is the cheapest and most basic model in the retailer’s line of e-readers, but it offers all the features that will let you enjoy e-books. The device features a 6-inch e-ink display with a resolution of 300 pixels per inch, up from the previous generation’s 167 ppi, so book covers will look even better and text looks just like ink on paper. The e-reader can last up to six weeks on a single charge, and its 16GB capacity can store thousands of books in your virtual library. The Amazon Kindle (2022) is lightweight and compact, and it features a backlight that’s easy to activate when you need it.

The 2021 version of the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is our top choice in our search for the best Kindle, partly because of its 6.8-inch e-ink screen with a resolution of 300 ppi and slightly slimmer bezels compared to its predecessor, plus the addition of a USB-C port for charging and a capacity of 8GB. The e-reader also comes with a blue light filter for easier reading at night, an adjustable warm light that can change the shade of the display from white to amber, and waterproof capabilities so you can read while in the bathtub or beside the pool. It can last up to 10 weeks on a single charge.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition (32GB) — $140, was $190

If 8GB worth of e-books isn’t enough for you, or if you’re planning to use the e-reader with audiobooks from Amazon’s Audible service, it’s highly recommended to go for the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition as it offers 32GB of storage. Additional upgrades from the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite include wireless charging and an auto-adjusting front light that changes brightness depending on the lighting conditions of your surroundings.

Why you should subscribe to Audible Premium Plus
We’ve written a whole guide to the best e-readers, yet we’re still aware of how difficult it can be to get wrapped up in the pages of a book that has NO pages.
