Having a Kindle is great. I can slip it into a quart-sized zip-top bag and take it practically anywhere, from the bathtub to the beach. This week, both the standard Kindle and the Paperwhite version have been knocked down to some of the lowest prices ever, $59 and $99.
One of the best parts of having a Kindle is carrying around more books than you could ever hope to take with you. So your trip to a cabin in the woods doesn’t mean packing an extra suitcase full of the books you plan on reading. This morning on the bus I carried all the current Song of Fire and Ice series and our latest pick for Book of the Week, Strategy Rules. Sure, charging it isn’t fun, but it only needs to be done once every few days, if not longer.
This deal matches the lowest price ever on the Paperwhite, which includes a front-lit screen for reading in the dark without the strain that comes with the screens on tablets and phones. It also matches the lowest price of the year on the standard Kindle. Both deals are for the ad-supported “Special Deals” version of the e-reader, which shows ads on the lock screen in exchange for a lower price.
