Kindle Voyage Users Manual: A Guide to Getting Started, Advanced Tips and Tricks, and Finding Unlimited Free Books

Amazon’s newest Kindle, the Voyage, sets the gold standard for eReaders. It’s noticeably lighter and smaller than its predecessor, the Paperwhite. When you consider the quality of the hardware plus the richness of Amazon’s unsurpassed library of content, it’s an unbeatable combination.

The biggest improvement the Voyage brings is its incredible display, which equals the sharpness and contrast of the printed page. When you compare the Voyage and Paperwhite side by side, the Paperwhite’s display is fuzzy and blotchy. Yes, the Voyage costs a bit extra, but it’s worth every penny to the discriminating reader.

This guide demystifies the Voyage and lets you get the most bang from your Kindle bucks.
