BookBook for Kindle Paperwhite FAQs

The best way to identify which generation of Paperwhite you have is by the logos on the front and back. The 2018 10th generation has the full Amazon logo on the back. It is also the version that comes in multiple colors, whereas the previous generation only comes in black or white.

Because we use leather for the frame, other Kindle Paperwhites can fit in BookBook, even though it is made primarily to fit the 10th generation Paperwhite.
