Take $40 off Amazon’s newest Kindle Paperwhite with this delightful deal

Everyone always says they want to read more, but how many actually end up doing it? Well here is your chance to put your money where your mouth is. Amazon is offering a $40 discount on its Kindle Paperwhite right now. It has a 6.8″ display with built-in backlight, a battery that can last up to 10 weeks, access to over 2 million titles, and right now you can get one for $100.

Why you should buy the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

Think about the last time you played with an Amazon Kindle. It probably had a tiny, dull display, with no backlight, and it might have looked like an old monochrome PDA. This just isn’t the case anymore — particularly with the Kindle Paperwhite. It’s highly-regarded as one of the best, if not the best, e-reader available right now. The aforementioned 6.8″ display features 300ppi and is glare-free, meaning it reads like real paper — even in direct sunlight. You can also read at night and in darker settings, with the built-in adjustable warm light, and you can even take it with you in the tub, thanks to the IPX8 waterproofing. Picture that for a minute: you’re enjoying a nice warm bubble bath, with a warm washcloth around your neck, and you’re deep into a good book on your Kindle, surrounded by candlelight. Oh, is that lavender I smell? Tell me that doesn’t sound relaxing.

Rounding out the features on the Paperwhite are enhanced performance, with 20% faster page turns than previous models, and a battery that can last up to 10 weeks on a single charge. It charges via USB-C, or you can spring for the slightly more expensive Signature Edition, which includes support for wireless charging. The crown jewel, of course, is the access you get to the Kindle bookstore, which means you will never ever run out of books to read. The Kindle Unlimited service does have a monthly subscription fee, but today’s deal includes 3 months of it for free, and there are a number of free titles that don’t require the plan to download.

It’s worth noting that today’s price is for the Ad-supported model, meaning you will be served targeted advertisements on your Kindle’s Lockscreen from time to time. It really doesn’t impact your usage of the device at all, but if you’re absolutely against it, you can pay a few extra bucks for the no-ads version. Either way, you’re getting a heck of a deal. So why not pick up a Kindle Paperwhite today, and finally start reading more like you’ve always said you wanted to. Go on, do it.
