Best reading tablets of 2024: Tested and recommended by experts

Kindle Scribe is perhaps the perfect example of part e-reader, part tablet to satisfy your reading and note-taking needs. It has the same functions you know and love on the Kindle, like a 300 ppi non-glare display, weeks of battery life, and adjustable warm lighting. It’s also compatible with Amazon’s Basic or Premium Pen, so you can take handwritten notes or underline important quotes in the book you’re reading.

Your notes are automatically organized in one place for each book, so you can browse, review, and export them via email. Kindle Scribe also comes with built-in templates to help you create notebooks, journals, and lists, and you can create sticky notes in Microsoft Word and other compatible Word documents.

Review: Amazon Kindle note taker

ZDNET contributing writer Matthew Miller worked on Kindle Scribe and called it “near perfect.” “I use Kindle Scribe every day as my primary note-taking device, and the habit of carrying it has also led me to read more books over the years,” Miller writes. “It’s a great e-reader that also doubles as a capable tablet.”

Kindle Scribe comes with a Basic pen, but for more advanced features like a dedicated eraser and shortcut button, you’ll need the Premium pen, which costs an additional $30. However, Amazon customers who have reviewed the Kindle Scribe say the premium pen is worth the extra money, especially since it has an eraser and a button that lets you switch the nib from writing to highlighting.
