In 2007, Amazon released the first Kindle upon the world. For many, the Kindle was a welcomed gadget that allowed them to condense their unwieldy book collection into a single device with an ‘E-ink’ display that didn’t murder your eyes during a long bout with fiction. This first generation model wasn’t the prettiest gadget ever created, but it did what it set out to do: make reading easier.

A decade later, the Kindle Fire has become a pretty big competitor to the iPad, especially for people that are just interested in reading on their tablets while the regular Kindles own the e-reader market. However, it didn’t happen overnight. So, with the new Kindle Oasis on the way, let’s take a look back at how America’s favorite e-reader evolved to become the literary juggernaut it is today.
