The feedback on the article How Does Kindle Work? Getting the Most from Your Kindle
I love my Kindle! I’ve used a Kindle for the last 10 years and recently upgraded from the Basic Kindle to a Paperwhite. Every time I whip out my Kindle in public, someone inevitably asks what it is and “how does Kindle work?” or “how do you get books on a Kindle?”
Whatever your questions, this post will provide comprehensive answers to everything you’ve ever wondered about the Amazon Kindle. I’ll share how it works, all the types of Kindles out there, what you can and can’t do with the device, and how to make the most of being a Kindle user.
The Amazon Kindle is a device designed mainly for reading books. It is produced by Amazon and allows users to read ebooks purchased on Amazon, library ebooks, and personal documents
Kindle devices are connected to your Amazon account, so when you purchase ebooks online (via Amazon.com or on your Kindle), they’re wirelessly delivered to your device as soon as it is connected to the internet.
There’s also an Amazon Kindle mobile application available for Apple, Android, and Windows devices. The app also syncs regularly to ensure that all your digital content is present across your devices.
There are so many benefits of owning and using a Kindle e-reader (not the Fire tablet):
- It’s designed for reading: It looks like paper books but is better because you can increase the font size, change the font entirely if you hate it, check what unfamiliar words mean, and more. You won’t be distracted by any notifications from social media while you read.
- Ebooks tend to be cheaper: Owning a Kindle means you can get some books for less instead of always buying a hard copy version.
- Benefit from ebook sales and get ebook credits: With my Kindle, I can quickly snag a Kindle book when it’s on sale – no shipping fees needed. I also get ebook credits (more on this later!) whenever I buy a Kindle book. I can then use my credits to buy another book later when they hit the threshold.
- Travel with your library: No need to bring 10 physical books on your backpacking trip – just pack your Kindle and load it up with books. Once they’re downloaded, you’ll have them whether there’s wi-fi or not.
- Get library books on your Kindle: With Overdrive,
- Their battery lives last forever: Well, at least for a few weeks. You won’t need to charge your Kindle daily. And if you don’t have ads on yours, the battery will last even longer. I charge my Paperwhite once every three weeks or so, and I read every day.
- Kindles are easier to read in the dark: With their gentle backlight, you can read a few chapters before bed without needing to turn on your book light
There are currently five types of Kindle readers (specifically for reading) available. Besides those, there are also the Amazon Fire tablets
I’ll compare the Kindle e-readers,
- The basic Kindle: This is the classic fuss-free Kindle. Until a few years ago, it wasn’t even backlit, which gave it the appearance of a real paper book. It’s super lightweight and compact and is p. It’s wi-fi enabled (all Kindles are) and comes with 16GB of memory.
- Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Paperwhite Kids: These two are essentially the same – both Paperwhites, but one is designed for kids in terms of the software. The kids Kindle comes loaded with a free Amazon Kids+ subscription (similar to Kindle Unlimited, but different selection of books), a 2-year warranty, a free cover, and no ads. The Paperwhite is a fancier and sturdier Kindle. It has a stronger backlight and is waterproof. I,
- Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition: This is just the Paperwhite but with wireless charging, an auto-adjusting backlight, and 32 GB of memory. The normal Paperwhite is available with 8 GB or 16 GB capacity. I, go for the Paperwhite Signature Edition.
- Kindle Oasis: I think of the Oasis as the clunkier Kindle option, but so many people love their Kindle Oasis. This one has p. It also has a stronger front light, an ergonomic design that makes it easier to hold, and a champagne color option.
- Kindle Scribe: The Kindle Scribe is f. It comes with a pen and looks pretty much like real paper! Amazon has plans to integrate Scribe with Office 365 so you’ll be able to import your Microsoft documents easily.
Here are more questions answered about how Kindles work and tips for using them.
- A wireless internet connection
- An Amazon account
Nope. A Kindle is a one-time purchase. However, you will need to pay for each book you purchase on Amazon.com. Also, if you sign up for Kindle Unlimited (everything about Kindle Unlimited here)
Select the Kindle option before you click purchase, not the hardcover or paperback. Amazon will deliver the ebook straight to your Kindle.
This applies to US customers and can be done through Overdrive (full tutorial here)
Both sites will send you free ebooks of yet-to-be-published books if you review books on a blog or social media.
Go to Content and Devices > Scroll down and click on Personal Document Settings and you’ll see your Kindle email addresses for all your associated devices.
Kindle book prices vary widely. Most indie-published books, chapter books, and popular classics cost less on Kindle – anywhere between $0 to $7.99. Middle grade books typically cost between $6.99 and $12.99. But buzzier adult fiction titles can cost up to $15 on Kindle, as seen in the screenshots below.
Thousands! I had my first Kindle for over five years and was a voracious reader but never ran out of space. Most Kindles only hold books with mostly text. You can’t open graphic novels on the Kindle Paperwhite, for example, so the books don’t take up that much memory.
No, they don’t. Once purchased, a Kindle book is yours unless you return it within the seven-day period.
Absolutely! And that’s why you need an Amazon account to use a Kindle. They can save all your content in the cloud and restore it to any new Kindle you sign in on.
If you have a Kindle e-reader, you can shop for other Kindle books on your Kindle. But besides that, the only thing you can do is read. If you have an Amazon Fire tablet, you can do pretty much anything else you can do with a regular tablet.
Yes! Without wifi, it’s impossible to receive your purchased books. You can connect your Kindle to your computer via USB and send personal documents to it that way, but you can’t receive content remotely without wifi.
Once your books are on your Kindle, though, you don’t need Wi-Fi to read them. You can even hold on to library books for longer (without messing up the wait line) by turning off internet access on your Kindle.
Yes, it does – but significantly less than other tablets or your computer. Research shows that Kindles give off just about the same amount of blue light as your cellphone.
- If you have Bluetooth headphones and an Audible subscription. You can purchase the Audible audiobook and listen to it through Bluetooth headphones from your Kindle.
- Alexa can read your Kindle ebooks to you. You can enable this on your Echo
All Kindles have dark mode! Even the basic Kindle has a dark mode setting if you prefer darker reading backgrounds. All except the basic Kindle have adjustable night lighting (where the light gets warmer to be easier on the eyes at night).
On the e-readers, you can browse the internet only to purchase new books. With the Amazon Fire, you can surf the Internet as normal.
By now, you should have a clearer answer to “How does Kindle work?” – here’s one last round of questions!
The latest Kindle Paperwhite is the 11th generation, released in 2021. The latest basic Kindle is the 11th generation, released in 2022.
If you’re looking for a tablet to watch movies, draw, and m read from time to time, get an iPad and download the Kindle app. But if you’re a big reader looking to read on the go more or at night, by the pool, or anywhere – get a Kindle!
It depends on how well you care for them. My basic Kindles all lasted at least five years. I expect my Paperwhite to last about the same or longer.
It’s excellent for night reading. The light is really gentle, and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve fallen asleep reading on mine.
Whispersync is an Amazon feature that syncs your place in an audiobook to your place in the Kindle ebook. So, say you buy an Audible audiobook while reading the Kindle ebook. You can switch between listening (as you do household chores, drive, run, etc.) and reading (when you’re ready to cozy up to your book).

Remember that Kindles won’t stop you from reading physical books – they only broaden your horizon. I still read plenty of physical books, but I love that my Kindle is lighter and can fit in even my smallest purses!
Class is dismissed! Now that you know how Kindles work, go forth and conquer your Kindles. I’m happy to answer any additional questions you may have.
