One of the best parts of this time of year is that Amazon’s Prime Day event is always somewhere within this window. Within it is a huge list of massive savings for everything you could possibly think of that can be found via the retailer. Of course, not everything is on sale, but the sheer amount of products that you will find makes it one of the biggest sales events in the world outside of Black Friday. And of everything you’ll find, Amazon’s own branded products are always included. Products like the Kindle e-reader (ebook reader), are always at their best price all year.
This leads us to what we are talking about now. The Kindle Paperwhite edition is one of the best e-reader options out there. It’s a wonderful screen, with so much battery life, and it is waterproof. Meaning it will last nearly all month before needing to be recharged. It can be read nearly anywhere, including the pool. And you will never have a hard time reading the screen.
Right now, the Kindle Paperwhite is only $69.99 for the 8GB model and $89.99 for the 32GB model, which places it at almost half the price that its normal MSRP rests at. So this is one of the hottest times to make the jump over to a Kindle if you haven’t already. It is the ad-supported edition of each, but the ads never bother anyone (they aren’t annoying at all and blend right into everything). Well worth the investment.
Amazon has a huge library of books available for purchase, including some free ones. It also runs promotions all the time for free books, discounted ebooks, as well as free credits towards titles. Of course, you could also subscribe to the monthly/yearly Kindle Unlimited subscription service, which grants you access to all of the books you could ever want to read (a free 30-day trial is available).
If you don’t want to be locked down to Amazon’s library of books or already have your own ebooks you’d like to use the Kindle for, you could easily make use of programs like Calibre to convert them over. Amazon has also been expanding its own support for third-party books/files as well. Making it a little easier to get them on there.
The Kindle Paperwhite is, by far, the most common ebook reader (model) you’ll find floating around the office here. The price is right, the quality is perfect, and it is incredibly durable to dirt and water. It
