Kindle Voyage, 6″ High-Resolution Display (300 ppi) with Adaptive Built-in Light, PagePress Sensors, Wi-Fi


Kindle Voyage is our thinnest Kindle ever, with the brightest, highest resolution, and highest contrast display, plus reimagined page turns and an adaptive front light.

Hero Image

Brilliantly crisp display

New—The high-resolution display (300 ppi) features sharp, dark text that reads even more like the printed page. The micro-etched glass display diffuses light to eliminate glare and match the feel of paper. Kindle Voyage features the brightest, highest resolution, and highest contrast display of any Kindle.

Effortless page turns

New—PagePress allows you to turn the page without lifting a finger. Simply apply pressure on the bezel to turn the page, and PagePress will provide a silent haptic response for consistent and immediate feedback. PagePress is a custom-designed force sensor made of carbon and silver, which reacts to a subtle increase of pressure, triggers a page-turn, and provides a haptic response only your thumb can perceive.

PagePress Image

Light that adjusts with you

New—Kindle Voyage can be read in bright sunlight or total darkness—and it’s smart enough to know the difference. The new adaptive front light automatically adjusts the brightness of the display based on your environment, and can even be fine-tuned further to your personal preferences. When reading in the dark, the adaptive front light slowly lowers the display’s brightness over time to match the way the eye responds to darkness.

Remarkably thin design

Improved—At just 7.6mm thin, Voyage is our thinnest Kindle ever. Comfortably hold Kindle Voyage in one hand for long reading sessions. Kindle Voyage was designed to come one step closer to a sheet of paper, with a flush-front bezel for a clean, streamlined design. With a magnesium back and a specially-reinforced glass front, Kindle Voyage is both durable and sleek.

Hero

Designed for readers

Kindle is purpose-built for reading. Indulge your love of reading without interruptions like email alerts and push notifications. The weeks-long battery life allows you to read for weeks on a single charge.

No Glare

Arts & Entertainments: A Novel


Christopher Beha delivers a cutting send-up of our cultural obsession with celebrity—a deliciously witty, and ultimately tender, novel about the absurdity of fame and the complexity of love sure to appeal to fans of Maria Semple and Jess Walter.

A sharp-edged satire with heart, Arts & Entertainments is the story of Handsome Eddie Hartley who, at thirty-three, has forgone dreams of an acting career for the reality of life as a drama teacher at a boys’ prep school. But when Eddie and his wife, Susan, discover they cannot have children, it is one disappointment too many.

Weighted down with debt, his wife’s mounting unhappiness, and his own deepening sense of failure, Eddie is confronted with an alluring solution when an old friend-turned-web-impresario suggests Eddie sell a sex tape he made with an ex-girlfriend, now a wildly popular television star. Overcoming his initial moral qualms, Eddie figures that in an era when any publicity is good publicity, the tape won’t cause any harm—a decision that will have disastrous consequences and propel him straight into the glaring spotlight he once thought he craved.

A hilariously biting and incisive take-down of our culture’s monstrous obsession with fame, Arts & Entertainments is also a poignant and humane portrait of a young man’s belated coming-of-age, the complications of love, and the surprising ways in which the most meaningful lives often turn out to be the ones we least expected to lead.

Adelle Waldman

Christopher Beha
Adelle Waldman, author of The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P., interviews Christopher Beha

Adelle Waldman (AW): How did you decide to write about a sex-tape scandal? The plot has a bit of a “ripped from the headlines” feel. Did you base it on any celebrities in particular?

Christopher Beha (CB): As unlikely as this sounds, the idea came from Edith Wharton – specifically, a story of hers called “That Good May Come,” about an impoverished poet, unable to sell any poems to magazines, who is offered instead the opportunity to sell a piece of gossip about a society lady he knows. Before I’d finished reading the story I knew I wanted to update it for our time. It seemed somehow obvious to me that in today’s version the failed artist would be an actor, not a writer, and the “gossip” would be a sex tape.

AW: Arts & Entertainments is very much about celebrity obsession and the culture of reality television. Do you watch reality TV?

CB: Before writing the book I hadn’t watched many “celebreality” shows of the kind depicted in the novel, But two close friends of mine are reality-show producers. They shared a lot of information about how these shows get made, which no amount of watching such shows could have given me.

AW: Several characters from your first novel, What Happened to Sophie Wilder, reappear in Arts & Entertainments. Was it your intention to keep building on this world?

CB: Once I decided I wanted to write about a struggling actor, I immediately thought of Eddie Hartley, who is described briefly in the first chapter of What Happened to Sophie Wilder. His part in that novel is so small that it didn’t require any real backstory, but I’d written that he was a young actor with a few TV credits. Now it felt as though I’d created him so that I would have a struggling actor on hand when I needed one. I couldn’t possibly turn down the chance to tell his story.

AW: I found myself rooting for Eddie in spite of his flaws. Do you mean to satirize popular culture more than your characters?

CB: I wanted readers to understand the conditions that might cause an otherwise not necessarily bad guy to make some very bad decisions. Part of that is the culture. There is obviously something about our culture that encourages behavior like Eddie’s and even gives it an audience. That doesn’t mean I want to excuse him. The awful thing about life, says Jean Renoir, is that everyone has their reasons.

Blockbusters: Hit-making, Risk-taking, and the Big Business of Entertainment


Why the future of popular culture will revolve around ever bigger bets on entertainment products, by one of Harvard Business School’s most popular professors

What’s behind the phenomenal success of entertainment businesses such as Warner Bros., Marvel Entertainment, and the NFL—along with such stars as Jay-Z, Lady Gaga, and LeBron James? Which strategies give leaders in film, television, music, publishing, and sports an edge over their rivals?

Anita Elberse, Harvard Business School’s expert on the entertainment industry, has done pioneering research on the worlds of media and sports for more than a decade. Now, in this groundbreaking book, she explains a powerful truth about the fiercely competitive world of entertainment: building a business around blockbuster products—the movies, television shows, songs, and books that are hugely expensive to produce and market—is the surest path to long-term success. Along the way, she reveals why entertainment executives often spend outrageous amounts of money in search of the next blockbuster, why superstars are paid unimaginable sums, and how digital technologies are transforming the entertainment landscape.

Full of inside stories emerging from Elberse’s unprecedented access to some of the world’s most successful entertainment brands, Blockbusters is destined to become required reading for anyone seeking to understand how the entertainment industry really works—and how to navigate today’s high-stakes business world at large.

#Workout: Games, Tools & Practices to Engage People, Improve Work, and Delight Clients (Management 3.0)


“Can our organization be a little bit more like Pixar, Spotify, Netflix, Zappos, Virgin, Valve or IDEO? Is there something I can do to get a better company culture? Better collaboration? Better management?”

The book #Workout offers concrete games, tools, and practices for all workers so they can introduce better management, with fewer managers. It addresses many common questions, such as:

– How can we measure team performance?

– How can we decide on salaries and bonuses?

– How can we define job titles and career paths?

– How can we replace performance appraisals?

– How can we motivate our workers?

– How can we change the organization’s culture?

In modern organizations, people are expected to be “servant leaders” and “systems thinkers”, but nobody explains exactly how to do this on a Monday morning. “Empowering workers” and “delighting customers” is crucial, but it’s not concrete. Managers, and everyone else, need to know “how” because most organizational problems are management problems.

Management is too important to leave to the managers!

This book offers you:

– Serious games to help improve organizational culture
