Browse more than Books

The Kindle Paperwhite has a Web browser which is basic, but it can be handy if your other devices are low on battery. Without Wi-Fi, you will only be able to access Amazon and Wikipedia.

Delete Unwanted Books

Kindles come pre-loaded with free books, which is really great but what if you do not like them? Press and hold the title and a “Remove from Device” option will appear.  You can always download them to your Paperwhite in the future. But if you want to permanently delete them from your Amazon account, log in from a browser and go to Manage Your Content and Devices. Navigate to the Your Content tab > Show and the category under which the unwanted book appears. Then select the book, click Delete, and confirm that you want to delete it permanently.

Use for other Activities

You probably bought your Paperwhite mainly to read, but you can use it for playing games and using apps. You can learn yoga, play puzzles, and note down your thoughts on a notepad.
