If you’ve been looking to pick up a Kindle, this is the time to do it. The all-new Kindle Paperwhite is down to $129.99 right now, and Amazon’s also including three free months of Kindle Unlimited, which gives you access to a digital library of more than one million books for free (normally $20).
The latest Kindle Paperwhite is the best e-reader for most people. It supports all of the most popular digital book formats, plus Audible audiobooks. Every title from your Audible library will be accessible on the Kindle, and you can stream them through a pair of Bluetooth headphones or speaker. The Kindle Paperwhite’s backlit screen makes it easy to read in the dark without turning on a desk-side lamp.
If you want to take your reading into the pool or tub, the Kindle Paperwhite is totally waterproof. You can leave it in over three feet of water for up to 30 minutes without damaging it.
Beyond that, the Kindle Paperwhite has all of the same features that have made Amazon’s e-readers incredibly popular. Its e-ink screen doesn’t show glare in the sun like a phone or tablet; it can store hundreds of books (or dozens of audiobooks); it’s as light and small as a standard paperback; and its battery can last up to 16 hours. Need to stock up on reading material? You can get access to Amazon’s Kindle store on the device itself.
If you want a durable, long-lasting e-reader for casual reading and everyday use, the Kindle Paperwhite is an excellent choice. It’s a great deal in general, but at its current $129.99 price plus the three free months of Kindle Unlimited, it’s a no-brainer. See all the Kindle deals here.
