The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (2018) is the perfect holiday companion for bookworms seeking freedom from suitcase clutter and smartphone notifications.
Not only does it have an e-paper screen, with 300 pixels-per-inch that’ll withstand sunnier climes, it also harbours weeks of battery life and Audible audio book support.
However, best of all, there’s a new waterproof design that’ll enable you to chill on a lilo without worrying about frying your book collection, when you’re inevitably tipped off it.
In fact, we enjoyed the new Kindle Paperwhite so much that it earned a five start review following its release in November last year, calling it “perfect package of all the best Kindle features for a great price.”
Now the latest model is even more enticing, thanks to an Amazon discount in the United States, offering $40 off the asking price for the 32GB of storage. That’s the lowest ever price.
This is the version of the device that isn’t laden with ‘special offer’ advertisements, while it’s also available with free cellular connectivity, as well as Wi-Fi.
If you want the 8GB version with special offers and only Wi-Fi connectivity, you can get that for as little as $89.99, but the higher-end device is very tempting at this price.
Unfortunately, the offer isn’t available to UK buyers who still need to fork over £219.99 for the same 32GB model, minus the special offers.
In his review, our own Max Parker added: “If you’re looking to upgrade an older e-reader, or purchase your first such device, the Kindle Paperwhite is the obvious choice.
“It’s far cheaper than the flashier Oasis, yet still sports a beautiful display, waterproof design and Audible support. Nor are you losing much in other areas outside of design.”
