Amazon Kindle fans, rejoice! The giant retailer unveiled three new Kindle Paperwhite e-readers today.

Anyone who already owns a Paperwhite may be tempted to upgrade.

The new Kindle Paperwhite comes with a larger, 6.8-inch glare-free display — an increase from the 6-inch screen in the old version — and up to 10 weeks of battery life. The new device also features adjustable warm light, USB-C charging and 8GB of storage. It retails for $139.99.

An alternative version — the first Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition — includes an auto-adjusting light sensor, 32GB of storage and wireless charging — making it the first Kindle with wireless charging. It retails for $189.99.

You can pre-order the devices now. They will start shipping on Oct. 27.

For a limited time, your purchase comes with four months of a Kindle Unlimited membership for free. This membership includes access to more than 2 million e-books.

Parents with young readers in their home can also purchase the new Kindle Paperwhite Kids.

It comes with a larger screen, a kid-friendly case and one year of Amazon Kids+, which includes access to thousands of books. The device also features the ability to look up the definitions of words, a vocabulary builder and parental controls. The retail price is $159.99.

As with the other new Paperwhites, you can pre-order the Kids model now, with shipping starting on Oct. 27.

A Paperwhite might be the perfect holiday gift for the bibliophile in your life. But you don’t need a Kindle to read e-books. For more, check out:
