Read and write as naturally as you do on paper
With a 10.2” 300 ppi glare-free Paperwhite display, Kindle Scribe is perfect for reading and writing, even in direct sunlight. The large display gives you room to take notes and journal, and makes it easy to adjust font size and margin width for improved reading comfort. Writing on Kindle Scribe feels like writing on paper. From the natural grip of the pen in your hand, to the sound you hear when you write, Kindle Scribe’s surface is crafted for the best possible reading and writing experience.
The power of the pen
Kindle Scribe includes either a Basic or Premium Pen. Both give you more ways to use your Kindle than ever before. The Premium Pen has a dedicated eraser and a shortcut button, which can be assigned to seamlessly switch between pen, highlighter, and more.
Add handwritten notes to your books
Create handwritten sticky notes in millions of eBooks from the Kindle Store without cluttering up the page. Simply tap where you want to insert a note on the page to quickly capture that handwritten thought for later. Sticky notes are automatically organized by book, into one place, so you can easily navigate, browse, and export all your in-book notes.
Streamline your life’s notes
Kindle Scribe is also a notebook and a journal with included templates like lined paper, blank paper, to-do lists, and more. Stop searching through stacks of paper—keep notes organized in folders, and search for notebooks by title to quickly reference later. Get access to your notebooks through the Kindle app sync feature.
Make notes in your documents
Easily import and mark up PDF files or insert sticky notes on Microsoft Word documents and other compatible formats. Send them to your Kindle Scribe through your desktop web browser or via the Kindle app using the “Share” button on your iOS or Android device. Coming early 2023, you will also be able to send documents to Kindle Scribe directly through Microsoft Word.
Read and write in any light
Adjustable warm light and auto-adjusting front light provide a comfortable, personalized reading and writing experience, day or night. And with USB-C charging and a battery life that lasts months for reading and weeks for writing, you can immerse yourself in your content without the worry of finding a power outlet.
A world class library, more beautiful than ever
Kindle Scribe enhances the beauty of images, illustrations and graphs on a large, thin, high-resolution display. The Kindle Stores worldwide offer an unmatched library of content with more than 13 million titles. With a Kindle Unlimited subscription, you gain unlimited access to millions of comics, audiobooks, magazine subscriptions, fiction, and newly added top nonfiction books.
Handy covers and necessary tips
Designed exclusively for Kindle Scribe, these slim, form-fitting covers attach securely and can fold back into two reading positions. They automatically put your Kindle to sleep when closed and wake upon opening, making it easy to get back to reading and writing.

For most people, the Kindle Scribe probably is the easiest choice if they’re looking for a simple note-taking device or big e-reader. [source]
Artists, designers and serious note-takers also probably want to look elsewhere for a more sophisticated drawing and annotating solution — the iPad and Apple Pencil might be your best bet. But as a combo of an e-reader that can also serve as a basic digital notepad, the Kindle Scribe is surprisingly satisfying. [source]
The Scribe's size and weight make it more of a burden to carry around, especially when you consider the smaller baseline Kindle can fit into a coat pocket. But in all, the Scribe strikes a very good balance between a large-format e-reader and an E Ink note-taking tablet. [source]
