Kindles are a line of popular eBook readers from Amazon designed to work with the Kindle Book format (available to U.S. libraries only).

This profile covers E Ink Kindle devices, like the original Kindle and the Kindle Paperwhite. We have a separate device profile for Kindle Fire tablets (the Kindle Fire, Fire HD, and Fire HDX), which are compatible with more digital formats.
