Some say reading is a dying art, but they don’t have a Kindle. A Kindle is the perfect gift for anyone who loves a good book (that’s everyone!), and even if they already own one, this new version is a must-have for the Kindle enthusiast. Plus, these new Kindles are now on sale at Amazon.
Or maybe you’ve never bought one for yourself and need a pick-me-up for the holidays? To start with It starts with us by Colleen Hoover or check out Mercedes Lackey’s In the Westboth are fantastic to read.
A customer said they should have bought this a long time ago. “I’ve had almost every version of the Kindle since the first model. I’m not sure why I was so hesitant to buy this model, but I’m really glad I finally did. The size is great. The buttons are so much better than just touching the screen to flip through the page and back… This is a solid version of the Kindle. I’d recommend it if you’re looking to get a new Kindle or if you’re looking to upgrade.”
“This is by far the best Kindle Paperwhite of the many I’ve tried. I love everything: the size, the weight, the ease of use, and most importantly the adjustable warm light. The warm light is so much easier on my eyes… and it’s much better for your skin,” one customer raved. “I recently read a news article about a scientific study on the dangers of blue light on the skin. Apparently blue light can be just as harmful as sunlight. Yuck! No more blue light screens for me!”
One customer named this as their favorite reading device: “How did I live without this for so long? I am an avid reader…and usually read between 75-100 books a year, sometimes more…It’s the perfect size to hold, lightweight (huge plus!!) and thin If I could change one thing it would be to have instructions in the box and that the screen would be more sensitive to page turning Battery lasts as long as it feels. I’m so happy!”
All of these Kindles are available in the same format minus lock screen ads – at a slightly higher cost. But the ads are relatively unobtrusive, so you can ignore them and score the most savings. And who knows, you might discover a book that you like through one of those advertisements!
