What is a Kindle Scribe?

The Kindle Scribe is Amazon’s latest e-reader, equipped with advanced features that set it apart from its predecessors. With its large 10.2-inch display, 300 ppi Paperwhite display, and stylus support, the Kindle Scribe allows users to interact with books like never before, creating a demand for interactive activity “books.” (Note: not books in the traditional sense – more PDFs or Printables.)

It’s designed not just for reading, but for writing and interaction, thanks to its stylus capability. With the Kindle Scribe, users can annotate, draw, and interact directly with the content, making it a powerful tool for both personal and educational use.

While it’s a bit pricey at the moment (several hundred pounds/dollars), it’s worth considering investing in one. If you’re going to be using it for work, it’s a tax write off. Right? Right! Prime Day deals anyone? The Scribe is at the top of my birthday wish list. (Hint hint.)
