I currently have a 3rd gen Kindle with physical buttons. I love the physical buttons, but would also like to have a screen that lights up. I've browsed the list of kindles here and didn't seem to find any that weren't touch screens but also light up.

I'm just looking for an ebook reader that has: * Physical buttons (no touchscreen, don't like the idea of accidental clicks) * Lights up * Part of the Amazon ecosystem.

Can anyone help point me in the right direction?

All the currently available Kindles have a touchscreen. One solution would be to buy an old kindle lighted cover


The current answer is technically no.


You can use a Kindle Oasis (from 2017) nearly all by buttons. Some search screens are scrollable only by touch but you rarely need to use them and selecting a choice e.g. a book from the library requires touch. Paging through a book can be done by button.


No, Sorry, the light up screen kindle are all touch screens

  • Do you have a reference to support this? While I suspect it is probably true, a reference supported answer is less likely to be down voted or deleted. Jul 11, 2015 at 9:33

buy kindle cover with lights. It takes power from the kindle so you don't need to charge them separately

  • How does that apply to buttons or touch screen

  • @mmmmmm I'd say this answer is suggesting using any kindle that has physical buttons and use a cover with lights as an alternative to a screen that Lights up.
