  • Amazon’s line of Kindles are the best e-readers you can buy.
  • Current models include the basic Kindle, Paperwhite and Oasis, with the all-new Kindle Scribe launching in November.
  • Read on for a breakdown of each to find the best one for you.

Amazon started out as a bookseller, and Kindle e-readers were among the online retailer’s first gadgets. Kindles have a well-deserved reputation for long battery life and E-ink displays that prevent glare and replicate the feel of reading a printed page.

Kindles are always about providing the best reading experience, so they don’t have all the extra apps and features that come with tablets like the iPad or Amazon’s own Fire HD devices. Newer models have adopted waterproof designs, brighter lighting, and Bluetooth support for listening to audiobooks through Audible.

A robust eBook store and optional Kindle Unlimited subscription make it easy to fill your eReader with new titles. You can also load e-books and PDFs from your local library or other sources to read.

With several different Kindles to choose from, it can be difficult to determine which model is best for your needs. With that in mind, we’ve detailed the entire Kindle range, along with buying advice to help you choose the Kindle that’s right for you.

How to Get a Good Deal on a Kindle

If you can wait, Kindles see plenty of sales throughout the year, but especially during big Amazon flagship events like Prime Day and the upcoming Prime Early Access Sale. These big flagship events offer the best prices on Kindle devices and bundles. For example, the price of the Kindle Paperwhite often drops to the price of an entry-level Kindle during these events, offering better value for more impressive technology.
