New books are coming out all the time. New material for you to peruse. Time to get back on your reading game with an Amazon Kindle Paperwhite down to $79.99. This powerful e-reader normally sells for $130, and today’s drop is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen.
It’s not a surprise that the Paperwhite has gone on sale for Amazon Prime Day. We’re seeing a ton of Amazon devices go on sale, which is fitting given the day. For example, you can also save on other versions of the Kindle or even on Amazon’s Echo devices. You will probably need to be a Prime member to take advantage of these sales, but that’s okay because you’re going to find hundreds of ways to save while the sales event continues.
The Kindle Paperwhite offers some serious upgrades over the regular Kindle. For one thing, it’s waterproof. Take it to the pool or get caught in the rain without worry. It’s a great companion for reading at the beach or even while drinking some sweet tea you’ll inevitably accidentally spill.

It also starts at twice the storage with 8GB instead of 4GB compared to the regular Kindle. If you’re really into magazines or other Kindle media that takes up a lot of space, you can upgrade up to 32GB to keep even more reading on hand.
The Paperwhite uses a single battery charge that will last you for weeks. And they do mean weeks. These e-readers do not use much battery and are designed so you don’t have to worry about plugging them in very much. Plus, you’ll be able to use the more advanced features like the lights or Bluetooth without fear of draining the battery too fast.
It even works with Audible to play audiobooks through a pair of Bluetooth headphones or speakers. You can actually save on Audible right now in a couple of different Prime Day deals. Either you can get a full month of Premium Plus free, which is normally $14.95, or you can save $50 on your entire first year as a Prime member.
If you plan to start reading more, you might also want to consider Kindle Unlimited. It’s on sale right now up to 50% off its regular price. You can also buy it as a gift for the reader in your life.
