With a recent survey revealing that Aussies who read at least once per week enjoy a 16 per cent happiness boost, we wanted to make it easier for Australians to enjoy great books wherever they happen to be. That’s why we’re excited to announce the all-new Kindle Oasis, featuring a large 7-inch, 300ppi display with a new colour-adjustable front light. You can now customise the colour tone from cool to warm as you transition easily from daytime to a comfortable nighttime reading experience, and you can even schedule the screen warmth to update automatically with sunrise and sunset. Quite simply, it’s our best Paperwhite display ever.

The all-new Kindle Oasis’ thin and light ergonomic build has been designed to allow users to read for hours and comfortably hold with one hand. With many Aussies claiming their 2019 goal was to read more, this will help them to turn that goal into a reality.

The Kindle Oasis also features dedicated page turn buttons and is designed to withstand accidental drops whether you’re reading in the bath or pool. It is IPX8 rated to protect against immersion in up to two metres of fresh water for up to 60 minutes.

So, whether Aussies are looking to do their reading on an exotic beach away from the winter chill or skipping a social event for some “me time” with their favourite page turner – something over a quarter of Aussies confess to having done – the all-new Kindle Oasis is the perfect companion.

“The all-new Kindle Oasis includes everything customers loved from the previous generation, including the large 7-inch display and waterproofing—and now we’re making it even better. We’re adding a colour adjustable front light so customers can read with a warmer tone that’s customisable to their preference to easily transition from daytime to nighttime reading,” said Kevin Keith, Vice President, Amazon Devices. “Kindle is designed to create a sanctuary reading experience, and the all-new Kindle Oasis exemplifies this—whether you’re reading poolside on vacation or in in the comfort of your bed.”

Our new device also makes it easy to find your next read. With Kindle Unlimited, readers have access to millions of eBooks, audiobooks, comics, kids’ books, and more for just $13.99 per month.
