Can you read books on Kindle without Internet connection?
With both the Kindle and Nook app you need Internet access to get the initial download of the book. 3g or Wi-Fi, either works. Once the book is downloaded to the phone then you do not have to have access in order to read them.
To use Time to Read:
- While reading, tap the top of the screen to show the reading toolbar.
- Tap the Display Settings (Aa) icon, and then tap the Reading Progress tab.
- Select your preferred tracking option to be displayed at the bottom of your screen: Location in book. Page in book (if available) Time left in chapter.
- Sleep: To put the Kindle Paperwhite in Sleep mode, press and release the power button. A screensaver appears on the display. Off: To turn off the Kindle Paperwhite, press and hold down the power button for 5–7 seconds, until the charge indicator light (located next to the power button) blinks and the screen goes blank.
- You can solve many issues with your Kindle, such as a frozen screen or issues with downloading content, by restarting your device. Help for Kindle Paperwhite (5th Generation).

Press and hold the Power button for a full 40 seconds. After the first 6 to 8 seconds, the screen will go blank, which is normal.
To download content from the Cloud:
