Go Beyond Just a Book
The Kindle comes with several features that allow you to have a better experience as you read your books. The Smart Lookup feature incorporates a full dictionary with X-ray and Wikipedia, allowing you to access definitions, settings, characters and more without moving away from the page you are reading. Add words that you look up to the vocabulary builder to expand your knowledge and increase retention. Translate a page instantly by tapping any word or section and translating it into other languages including Japanese, Spanish and more (provided by Bing translator). Share with friends on Goodreads, the largest online book-loving community to see what your friends are reading, share highlights, and rate your books (some of these features are only available when connected to WiFi).
Get the Kids Reading Again
Encourage your kids to read more by crafting personalised profiles on Kindle for Kids and give them access to books from your collection. They are awarded with achievement badges when they reach their goals and you can use progress reports to stay updated on total time spent reading, number of words looked up, badges earned and books read. You can even restrict access to inappropriate material, and stop them from making accidental purchases by blocking access to the store. Allow your kids to read with the peace of mind that everything is going smoothly.
