One of those characteristic of Kindle is the non-replaceable screensaver, or someone calls it wallpaper or sleep images.
But where there is a problem, there is a solution. To change your Kindle's screensaver, you need to hack Kindle at first. I was going to put some links to the specific guide pages, but I find that there is not a universal method for different Kindle models and firmware versions. They might be useless just a week later.
Find a solid way to hack your Kindle Screensaver
So if you want to hack your Kindle for a customized screensaver, please search in Google like this ["Your Device Name" + "screensaver hack" + "Firmware Version"], for example, [kindle touch screensaver hack 5.1.2].

But I'm sure it can help you lot as the general processes are the same.

The images tend to minimalism, like a big simple icon, or repeated abstract patterns.
This is a blog built upon tumblr and it contains over 300 Kindle screensaver pics which cover various kinds of themes and styles, like animals, comics, classic arts, comedy, sports, movies, etc.
All the screensavers I am using on my Kindle Paperwhite at the moment are downloading from this site.
This site is pretty really a gold mine, it offers nearly 3,000 screensavers for Kindle, Kindle Touch and Kindle Paperwhite.
But the problem is many of them are just convert into grey shades images, the size are not suitable for Kindle screens. For this situation you need to manually customize the image size for you Kindle screen's resolution.
You can easily figure out this is a reddit group from the url. Just like all the user-generated content site, this reddit group has a huge images capacity and the quality is pretty well, because those low quality ones are all disliked and buried under the dust.

And if you want get images much more specifically, you can search keywords like [Kindle Touch screensaver images], [Kindle Paperwhite screensaver images], etc. Just like what you are always doing when using Google.

Sometimes Google search results are not what we need, then we can ask a favor from professional image sharing site: Flickr.
But flickr's search box is not that reliable, it often tells me that there is no images suits my searching keywords. So if you want to seek Kindle screensaver images from flickr, please try this flickr image search engine: compfight.com.
