When I am at home, I use a proper Amazon Kindle Paperwhite e-reader which I have owned since 2016. There are not many pieces of consumer tech that I will keep and consistently use for over seven years, so I think it has been an amazing investment.

However, I once left the first Kindle I owned on a plane, and since then, I have refused to take it with me when travelling.

Instead, I normally take a tablet, as this gives me the flexibility to watch TV and movies as well as read books and browse the internet.

There are plenty of e-reader apps to choose from on both iOS and Android devices, but I stick to the Kindle app because that’s how I read my books at home.

If you want to read Kindle books on your iPad, it is quite a straightforward process. However, buying them on your iPad is a bit more convoluted.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to read Kindle Books on an iPad:

  1. Download the Kindle App: Go to the App Store on your iPad and search for “Kindle.” Tap on the download icon to install the Kindle app on your iPad.
  2. Sign in to Your Amazon Account: Once you have the Kindle app installed, open it and sign in with your Amazon account credentials. If you don’t have an Amazon account, you can create one directly from the app.
  3. Access Your Kindle Library: After signing in, you’ll be taken to the Kindle library. This library will be empty if you’re a new Kindle user. If you’ve used Kindle before, all your previously purchased books should be displayed here.
  4. Download Books: Tap on a book cover to download it to your iPad. Once downloaded, simply tap on the cover again to start reading.
  5. Browse the Kindle Store: To find new books, tap on “Store” in the upper right-hand corner of the app. You can browse the Amazon Kindle store to find the books you want. Once you buy a book, it will appear in your Kindle library.
  6. Adjust Reading Settings: While reading a book, you can tap in the middle of the screen to bring up reading settings. From here, you can adjust the font size, background color, brightness, and other aspects of the reading experience to suit your preferences.

Also, any changes you make in the Kindle app, like highlights, notes, or bookmarks, will sync across all your devices that have the Kindle app installed and are signed in to the same Amazon account. This makes it easy to switch between devices without losing your place.
