If you've got a Kindle e-reader, you're probably keen to read away from home and without an Internet connection. But the Kindle works with WiFi. Is it possible to read books without Wifi enabled?

The quick answer: yes, you can read books on your Kindle without WiFi. But there are some prerequisites.

How do you read ebooks on your Kindle without Wifi?

First of all, your e-reader must contain books. On Kindle, you can either download books from the Kindle library or load books from a computer.

In the latter case, if you want to download ebooks, you'll need to use the Wifi connection and your Amazon account to download the books to your e-reader.

Once the books have been downloaded, you can turn off the Wifi on your Kindle e-reader and read without needing an Internet connection.

If you don't want to use your Kindle's Wifi connection at all, you can turn it off and load books onto your Kindle using Calibre software, for example.

Why read ebooks on your Kindle without Wifi?

There are several reasons why it's a good idea to turn off the WiFi on your Kindle e-reader.

The first is that you don't send any information to Amazon about the books you're reading or your reading habits.

The second is just as interesting, since turning off the WiFi on your Kindle increases its autonomy, so you can read longer between battery recharges.
