I see three advertised on Amazon:
Kindle Fire
Kindle paper white
Kindle oasis
Fire is what I have. I love it and use it for reading and some silly games when I am bored. As others have said it's more tablet-ish.

As for books, I get a lot of books from bookbub.com that are free or $2 or less. I also use my local libraries and can often borrow books for 2 weeks that way. Never at a loss to find something to read. Let us know what you decide.

I have the Fire table basic $50 I can read book, watch movies, listen to music. I can also do email ,weather apps, games, and access internet and SKMB. Now that is an accomplishment for non techno me. It now has Alexa, tho I haven;t graduated to using that yet. It is backlit so I can read at night. Can not beat the price for all it does.
