The Amazon Kindle is the basic, plain-vanilla version of a Kindle, available in black or, as of 2022, denim blue. It’s the lightest and smallest of the Kindles Amazon sells. The 2022 version (11th generation) has a sharper screen and an even longer battery life. It’s extremely sturdy, though not waterproof, which might be an issue if you like reading in the bath. In addition to reading, this Kindle allows you to listen to audiobooks via Audible, if you have bluetooth headphones. Price-wise this is the best Kindle to get, though the most recent model is pricier, only coming in at just under $100 if you buy it ‘with ads.’ If you find ads when your screen is locked annoying, you’ll need to pay extra for the Kindle ‘without ads’ option.
