This Kindle has a 6" anti-glare screen that allows you to read content in direct sunlight and a 167 ppi resolution for displaying clear and crisp text.

The Kindle comes with a USB 2.0 cable for charging and can last up to 4 weeks on a single charge. This eReader supports children's books with Kindle Text Pop-up and allows you to set parental controls for denying access to mature material. The device's 5-way controller is designed for simple operation and navigation. With a weight of 5.98 oz and width of 4.5", the Kindle is compact and light-enough to fit in your pocket.

Reads Like Real Paper, No Glare Even in Bright Sunlight
Kindle uses an electronic ink screen that looks and reads like real paper. The matte screen reflects light like ordinary paper and uses no backlighting, so you can read as easily in bright sunlight as in your living room. The Kindle's screen has no glare.
Lighter Than a Paperback
At less than 6 ounces, Kindle is designed to make it easy and comfortable to hold in one hand for extended periods of time.
One-Month Battery Life
Kindle does not require power to maintain a page of text, allowing you to read for up to a month on a single charge, with wireless off and a half hour of reading per day, versus hours on a tablet or smart phone.
Sharp, Clear Text
Kindle uses actual ink particles and proprietary, hand-built fonts to create crisp, print-like text similar to what you see in a physical book. The screen's 100% aperture ratio means no gaps between pixels. The blacks and whites on the screen are uniform, improving image quality.
Easy on the Eyes
Every time your eyes switch from a bright screen to a dimmer, ambient room, your eyes have to adjust, which may result in fatigue. With Kindle the page is the same brightness as everything else in the room so there's no adjustment needed.
Read in Any Position
When you read for long periods of time, you often switch positions to get more comfortable. Kindle has a uniform contrast ratio that does not change with your viewing angle, so you can read in any position.
Book Prices
The Kindle store offers a large selection of competitively priced book titles.
Kindle Matchbook

Adjustable Text Sizes, Font Choices
Kindle has eight adjustable text sizes to suit your reading preference. You can increase the text size of your favorite book or periodical with the push of a button. If your eyes tire, simply increase the font size and continue reading comfortably. Kindle also has three font styles to choose from - all optimized and hand-tuned to provide the best reading experience.
Custom Fonts
Kindle uses hand-built, custom fonts and font-hinting to make words and letters more crisp, clear, and natural-looking. Font hints are instructions, written as code, that control points on a font character's line, improving legibility at small font sizes where few pixels are available. Hinting is a mix of aesthetic judgments and complicated technical strategies.
Global Language Support
Kindle supports the display of non-Latin characters, so you can read books and documents in your favorite language. Kindle displays Cyrillic (such as Russian), Japanese, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), and Korean characters, in addition to Latin and Greek scripts. Kindle also provides access to several international dictionaries.
Real Page Numbers
You can match the pages of a Kindle book to the text in a print book to identify the corresponding "real" page number. Easily reference and cite passages or read alongside others.
5-Way Controller
Kindle's 5-way controller is designed for ease-of-use, enabling precise on-screen navigation for selecting text to highlight or looking up words.
Supports Children's Books and Comics
Kindle supports children's books with Kindle Text Pop-Up, and comic books with Kindle Panel View, which allows you to read a comic book panel by panel.
Whispersync
Whispersync technology synchronizes your last page read, bookmarks and annotations across your devices so you can always pick up where you left off.
Free Library Backup
Automatically back up your library in the cloud, so don't have to worry about losing your books. Re-download wirelessly anytime for free.
Organize Your Library
Organize your Kindle library into customized collections, or categories, to easily access any book you are looking for. You can add an item to multiple collections to make organizing and finding titles even easier.
Search Wikipedia and the Web
Kindle makes it easy for you to search. Enter a word or phrase and Kindle will search every instance across your Kindle library, in the Kindle Store, on Wikipedia, or the Web using Google search. Kindle features an experimental WebKit-based browser to provide a better experience.
Built-in Dictionary with Instant Lookup
Come across a word you don't know? Kindle includes The New Oxford American Dictionary with over 250,000 entries and definitions for free. Kindle lets you instantly lookup the definition without ever leaving the book - simply select the word with the cursor and the definition will automatically display at the bottom of the screen.
Fast Page Turns
Kindle's processor is engineered for fast, seamless page turns.
Carry and Read Your Personal Documents
Kindle makes it easy to take your personal documents with you, eliminating the need to print. You and your approved contacts can e-mail documents - including Word, PDF and more - directly to your Kindle and read them in Kindle format. You can also send documents to your Kindle using Send to Kindle.
Bookmarks and Annotations
Add annotations to text, just like you might write in the margins of a book, with a virtual keyboard that appears just when you need it. And because Kindle books are digital, you can edit, delete, and export your notes. You can highlight and clip key passages and bookmark pages for future use. You don't need to bookmark your last place in the book, because Kindle remembers for you and always opens to the last page you read.
Share Meaningful Passages
Share your passion for books and reading with friends, family, and other readers around the world by posting meaningful passages to social networks like Facebook and Twitter directly from Kindle, without leaving the page. Want to post or tweet about a great new novel or newspaper article? When you highlight or create a note in your book or periodical, you can easily share it with your social network. Help your network of family and friends discover new authors and books.
Public Notes
Share your notes and see what others are saying about Kindle books. Any Kindle user - including authors, book reviewers, professors and passionate readers everywhere - can opt-in to share their thoughts on book passages and ideas with friends, family members, colleagues, and the greater Kindle community.
Popular Highlights
See what Kindle readers think are the most interesting passages in your books. If several other readers have highlighted a particular passage, then that passage will be highlighted in your book along with the total number of people who have highlighted it.

              Comments about Kindle 6" eReader (With Special Offers Advertisements):

              I was not an avid reader. My wife is. I plan to gift her a regular Kindle. Why regular kindle, and not paper-white version or a tablet? I will come to that later. But I wanted to give something that will enable her easy access to books.The day I received it. I fall in love with this little treasure. I am reading and reading ... day and night. I don't know why, I have started into getting the habit of reading more than I usually do. Book is our best friend. I never knew this (though my wife told me 1000 times). A Kindle in hand, and if you love reading, the world opens in your mind. Such a simple gadget, yet far far more than a gadget. In fact I am doubting who will use it more, my wife or I :)Now coming back to the reason why not a tablet and a regular kindle .... first, tablet strains eyes and, I think, it can never replace the e-ink technology with back lit LED screen. The purpose of a tablet is different from that of a eBook mainly because eBook works like a slate (e-ink technology) with no back-lit glow.Why regular kindle and not a paper white? Three reasons ...First paper white still glows.... less than a tablet, but still it does. I do not want glow, rather attach a reading lamp if I need to read in dark. I am going to take no chance of glow hurting my eyes (though I am not sure to what extend the glow of paper-white version strain the eyes)Second, paper-white version is touch sensitive, I have read in many reviews where people complain that an unintended touch on the screen turns to next page. I wanted it simple, I will rather press the button on side of regular kindle to turn page. I am not touch obsessed. If I am, I will use my tablet or notebook which is for different purpose than reading books.Third... I got a sweet deal here. 20 dollars off regular price. [$] ... to open my world of imagination and ideas .... very well justified.By the way, my wife said so long, nothing can replace paper books; the great feel of holding a book in hand and reading it through ... is something people other than book lovers will never understand. I have heard the similar statement from many others ... I am not sure if I am too new of the old school thoughts ... but I am loving reading books from this light weight kindle so much, I will not mind if my wife refuses to change paper book habit. I will rather keep this for myself :)Few technical positive points .... super battery life...its light weight....its feel is NOT like cheap plastic ... the back side of Kindle does feel good in palm.... by the way, it does not retain finger marks impressions as the glass of my Nexus tablet does.Negatives .... it dims to black when changing page, and very lightly retains the impression of alphabets of previous page. I think this more to do with e-ink technology... and I do not mind any of these cons.Recommendation: I feel I need two accessories ... a cover and a reading lamp.

                            I bought the kindle to be able to read outside. While I didn't mind reading through the kindle app on my iPad, I was frustrated by the glare and the limit of being about to read wherever I was at. The kindle has been amazing so far, I keep the wifi off unless I am syncing it and the battery life is fantastic. Obviously there is no back lighting, so at night you have to have light source, but I'm fine that. I also enjoy that it reads more like a book, the way the typeface appears is different than on the app. I am very glad I god the kindle and would reccommend it in a heartbeat. Now that summer is really settling in, I am very excite to continue using it.

                            I own a Kindle HD and find it very hard to read due to glare on the screen so I was looking for a black & white, e-ink type device for reading only. This basic Kindle does the trick. The page looks exactly like a book. Since I do almost all of my reading with a light source this works great for me (the basic Kindle has no back-lighting). It is so light it is very comfortable to hold for hours at a time.

                            There are no other gadgets, no camera or memory card slots or USB ports or earphone jacks. It is an easy to use ebook reader and I love it!

                              I love this little device. It makes it easier to carry and read a huge book. It is light weight and can be read anywhere there is light. It reads and looks just like a book. You can even read it outside in bright light. I bought a book cover with a light attached for $9.00. It is perfect for reading in not so well lit places.

                              I really love the fact you can move the cursor to a word and the definition pops up. It makes it so easy to expand your volcabulary and your understanding of what is really being said.

                              I read someone's comments about not being able to read it while laying down. I have no trouble with that. There are page back and forward buttons on each side and if you do accidently hit one that changes the page, there is a back button at the bottom of the reader that will take you back to the last page you were on.

                              I also love the fact you can highlight passages and make notes. All of your highlights, notes, bookmarks (you can make book marks too) can be seen from one menu. Simply put the cursor on the page number and the Kindle takes you right to the highlighted information.

                              You can not view video on this Kindle but you can browse the internet with it if you have a wireless connection to your home internet and are in range. You can also save pictures and your own documents to this device. Everything will be in black and white. I also had some ebooks in pdf form and was able to download and view them on my new Kindle.

                              I am very happy with my new high tech addition. You can even purchase books from Amazon right from the comfort of your Kindle.

                              It takes a minute to get it set up. Please be patient. It will be worth it.

                                my mom's old electronic sudoku puked, and she needed a new one...well this fit the bill pefectly, and i loaded up a few other goodies besides the sudoku and she is as happy as a clam..

                                she doesn't complain about the keyboad function of scrolling and selecting each individual character, which i feel is truely the downfall of the unit; but i know the kindle keyboard vertion would have been no better because i have an alphbetical keyboad on my scientific calculator that serriously would require a brain transplant to opperate any more effectively..

                                hopeing the 4th gen non-touch's USB port will support a mini thumb style qwerty, but haven't been able to find information confirming one way or annother yet..

                                I need a simple reader to read books, and I find the Kindle 6 ereader perfect for my needs. It is small, light, compact (I can put it in my pocket), however easy to read with no glasses which I normally need when I read paper books. My only suggestions for improvement would be a back light, and the page turner button looks a bit fragile. I know the Fire model has back light, however I was not interested on a tablet to stream movies or connect to the Internet, I just wanted a book reader. I would have gladly paid $10 more for a back light. The page turner button I know is not durable because it broke pretty fast on my previous kindle and I can feel it is not very sturdy. All in all, I would highly recommend Kindle e-reader, it is a great value for the price
