How to Buy a Kindle (Seriously, it's that complicated)

Unless you're very proficient at computers (#LikeAGeek), you're probably going to need some help when it comes to Kindle buying. First of all, I don't recommend buying a Kindle from a retailer nor from your mobile device (including from an app). Buy it on a computer from Find the Kindle section on Amazon. Pick out the Kindle that best fits your lifestyle. If you read in dark areas, pick out a Kindle Paperwhite. If you don't have an internet connection at your house, buy a Kindle Paperwhite with 3G (this 3G is free and unlimited for a one-time fee). Or, if you're just looking for the very minimum, buy a Kindle for $69. Ignore Kindle Fires. Next, decide if you want "Special Offers", also known as ads. If you buy a Kindle with Special Offers, you can remove them later if you choose to. Finally, choose if this is a gift (No, not to yourself). Check the "This is a Gift" button if it is. This removes the Kindle logo from the box to keep it a surprise. Also, it doesn't register the Kindle to your account. Usually, a Kindle ships with your account already linked. Congrats! You're ready to buy your Kindle! Good luck!
