This present time may be a decent opportunity to purchase an e-reader for school — or that end-of-summer vacation. Amazon has reduced the cost of the advertisement-supported 8GB Kindle Paperwhite to an all-time low of $71 in a one-day-only sale, well below the official $130 sticker. That is lower than what we saw only two weeks earlier, and settles on it a simple decision contrasted with the base Kindle (which isn’t discounted as we compose this). You can purchase the ad-free and 32GB variants with substantial discounts, as well.
The Kindle Paperwhite is a simple decision in case you’re either new to e-readers or intensely invested into Amazon’s ecosystem. It flaunts a high-contrast backlit display, Audible audiobook support and waterproofing for your poolside reading sessions. Pair that with the standard weeks-long battery life of e-readers and you shouldn’t have issues taking this with you on vacation.
It’s not perfect. This deal doesn’t cover the LTE model, so you will not be getting books while you’re at the beach. You additionally will not discover MP3 playback or text-to-speech support, and you probably won’t be excited to see ads on the subsidized models. These limitations are not really surprises, however, and at this price they’re a lot simpler to forgive — you can spend significantly more on readers with less features.
