Hate carrying your bulky hardcovers or having to make room for multiple books in your suitcase while traveling?
If you’re unfamiliar with the magic of Kindle, let us fill you in! The portable device houses all your purchased books, plus it grants you access to Amazon’s Kindle library, where you can shop for your next read directly from the e-reader.
And right now Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite — the thinnest and lightest Kindle model ever — is on sale for just $85. That’s $45 off retail!
The Kindle Paperwhite is waterproof, so it’s perfect for vacations by the pool, relaxing moments in the tub or rushed mornings — according to product details, the Paperwhite can last up to 60 minutes underwater without getting water damage.
Made with a 300ppi glare-free screen, the display is bright enough to mimic the effect of reading from an actual page, without the bright-white glare that’ll give you a headache if you look at it too long. The built-in adjustable light shifts wherever you go.
Shoppers say this latest version of the Kindle Paperwhite has a battery that lasts for weeks, which allows more time for reading and less time looking for chargers. It even includes Audible, so you can listen to your favorite audiobook if you’re on the move (or just want to give your eyes a rest).
Another cool feature is the Paperwhite’s automatic power off. To put your reader to sleep, all you have to do is close the case over the screen, and the battery and page location will be preserved.
Shoppers are loving this Kindle deal, saying that it’s changed their reading experience for the better — and that it helped them read more!
“I bought this kindle to replace an old keyboard one,” one happy reviewer shared. “I wanted one that I could read in bed without a light on and also needed to be able to adjust the type size. This meets my needs perfectly. I read about 45 min to an hour every day and the initial charge is still about 70% after a couple weeks.”
