There’s no feeling that can match the captivating experience of getting lost in the mesmeric story of an incredible book, and Amazon’s e-reader gave us the power to take those stories anywhere. Now the all-new Amazon Kindle Oasis is here to give bookworms an even more advanced e-reader to keep the stories flowing.

The Kindle Oasis features a 7-inch 300ppi flush-front, paper-white display, but this time it also allows you to adjust the shade of the screen from white light to a warm amber so you can finish a few more chapters when the sun goes down. You also have the convenient option of setting light change schedules or using the front light that adjusts automatically, depending on lighting conditions. The ergonomic e-reader with a lightweight anodized aluminum back also has an IPX8 waterproof rating, allowing you to get some reading done poolside or seaside. Not to mention, you’ll have instant access to millions of books, audiobooks, and newspapers. The Kindle Oasis comes in an 8GB or 32GB variation, starting $250, and will be available on July 24.

Purchase: $250+
