How to Show the Clock on a Kindle Paperwhite

show clock on Kindle Paperwhite

If you are an avid reader like me, then chances are high that you sometimes get lost in your Kindle Paperwhite. I mean, I love Science Fiction so much that I sometimes forget to do anything else while reading about hyperspace engines and time travel paradoxes. But then, that’s the life of a freelancer. You get so much time on your hands that you have virtually all the freedom in the world to do what you want. Anyway, the great thing about the Kindle Paperwhite, which is my default reading device, is that it gives you a lot of options that allow you to customize how your screen appears. One of the things that you may wish to do is show the clock on a Kindle Paperwhite while reading. But how do you go about doing it?

Show the clock while reading on a Kindle Paperwhite

To show the clock while reading on a Kindle Paperwhite, you need to take the following steps;

  1. Go to the book that you are reading.
  2. Click on the top edge of your screen. This will bring down the menu options.
  3. Click on “Page Display.”
  4. Click on “Font and Page Settings.”
  5. Click on “Reading.”
  6. Next, you need to click toggle the screen to “On” on “Show Clock While Reading.”

What happens when I do this?

Now that you have chosen this options, you will see a clock telling you the current time on the top of your Kindle Paperwhite’s screen. This can be useful, if you are one of those people who, as already noted, are liable to getting lost while engrossed in one book or the other. However, showing the clock can also be a distraction. I personally prefer to keep it hidden. I want to have as little clatter as is possible on my screen while enjoying my books by the beach. It’s a matter of personally preference, in any case.
