There are several alternatives to the Kindle (e.g.) Kobo, Sony and Nook, but as you already using a Kindle you will be tied into Amazon's proprietary mobi/azw3 format but you can manage & convert books using a computer program called Calibre (linux, Mac or Windows) to (e.g.) the internationally approved standard .epub format.
If books are 'protected' (sic) it is possible to remove the DRM allowing the books you have paid for to any format, so you are not tied to Amazon.
Alternatively, you might want to risk 10 quid on a replacement battery from ebay.co.uk, unless you can find someone with a similar model to test yours by swapping the battery.

Will just have to read books for the next month and then buy one when back in the U.K.
If you have a laptop or PC you can download an app from Amazon that allows you to read Kindle books (Google KindleForPC). When you've installed it you can then download your books to the PC and read them.

Please can anyone give me Information on where I can buy a kindle?
Hi Annier, I just bought a new paperwhite, but my old Kindle Touch (4th generation 4GB, WiFi 6") is in a good condition if you don't mind a second hand one. Works perfectly. I was just going to hand it into the charity shop when I got home on the 25th. Yours if you want it. Example of model attached. Regards Margaret
