If you're tired of lugging around those heavy hardcover books, you should consider buying a Kindle. After testing all of the past and current Kindles--including the Kindle Oasis--our recommendation for most people is the newest Kindle Paperwhite (2018) (available at Amazon for $119.99). Not only does a Kindle give you thousands of books at your disposal, the convenience factor is just plain hard to beat. While all Kindles might seem the same at a glance, there are some key differences between each model that every prospective shopper should know about. For example, what type of display is best-suited for your reading habits?
If your Kindle has ads or "Special Offers" showing onscreen, it's because you made a deal. You chose to save money on your Kindle's purchase price by accepting the "With Special Offers" discount. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but now you're sick of the ads. The bad news: It's going to cost you. You might not have given this much thought when you bought your Kindle, but Amazon offers a lower price for the E-reader if you accept Special Offers.
Now you can pose in artsy black and white photos whilst reading for even less. It's not "Christmas in July" but it looks like Amazon is making "Black Friday in March" a thing. For a limited time (don't ask how long, because they won't tell), Amazon has knocked $30-50 off their Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite, and Kindle Voyage E-readers. The deal is available for Prime members only. I'd complain about the exclusivity; but I can't think of the last time I didn't have a Prime membership, it's proven to be so useful.
The Kindle is the undisputed leader in e-readers, and Amazon makes several models. Knowing which Kindle to buy depends on your budget and your reading preferences. With this guide and our in-depth reviews, we'll help you find just the right Kindle for you or your lucky loved one. Alert: If you're a longtime Kindle reader, you might have one of the original models. In December, 2021, those 1st- and 2nd-generation Kindles will lose Internet access, as 2G and 3G networks go offline.
Now is a good opportunity to buy one of the best no-frills e-readers available. Amazon is selling the latest generation of its standard Kindle reader for just $50 during a one-day sale, or $70 for a version without ads. Those are the lowest prices we've seen since Black Friday, and make them easy picks if you don't need water resistance or other extras. There's also a Goldbox sale on Kindle e-books if you need some reading material. The base Kindle may be from 2019, but it's still a very competitive e-reader in 2022.
