This April, Amazon announced the arrival of their newest e-reader, the Kindle Oasis.

Said to be designed for comfort and extended reading, the Kindle Oasis is 30% thinner on average and over 20% lighter than previous versions and includes a physical design that is made to shift the center of gravity to the reader’s palm, resting in the hand like the spine of a book, creating balance for one-handed reading.

According to Amazon, Kindle Oasis comes with a dual-battery charging system that provides the longest battery life of any Kindle. A removable leather charging cover, available in black, merlot, or walnut is included with the e-reader, which lets readers enjoy e-publications for months without having to plug in.

With no set-up required, readers can easily start reading once their Kindle arrives. Tools like Whispersync, which saves and synchronizes your last page read so you can always pick up where you left off, and X-Ray which allows readers to see all of the passages across a book that mention relevant ideas, fictional characters, historical figures, places, or topics of interest, also come with the Kindle.

Kindle FreeTime is another useful gadget that gives parents a way to encourage kids to spend more time reading by hand-selecting books for kids to read, and giving out achievement badges when small learners hit reading milestones.

Other features of the Kindle Oasis include:
  • Goodreads—Kindle is integrated with the world’s largest site for readers and book recommendations, with over 50 million members, 1.3 billion books added, and 47 million book reviews,
  • Family Library—With Kindle and Kindle reading apps, readers can access not only their own books, but also books from the Amazon account of a spouse or partner.
  • Sharing-Readers can easily share book recommendations, highlighted sections, and meaningful quotes with friends via Facebook and Twitter,
  • Content-Kindle supports millions of books, newspapers and magazines, including the latest best sellers,
