Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (2018) Best Overall

The 10th Generation Kindle Paperwhite is the latest version of Amazon’s most popular Kindle as well as our pick for the overall best. While its core features and overall presentation are largely the same as its predecessor, this Paperwhite has a few tricks up its sleeve: namely a waterproof design and Audible functionality.

In the past, users who wanted to enjoy these features would have to sign up for the Kindle Oasis—an e-reader we love, but one whose price tag is nearly double that of the Paperwhite. And although the Oasis is still the more premium of the two, people who passed on the Paperwhite in the past ought to take a second look at the most recent iteration.
