There has never been a better time to buy an Amazon Kindle

Amazon Kindle with built in light (ad supported)

Amazon Prime Day deals are going fast, especially for Amazon exclusives. If you’ve been in the market for a Kindle, you’re in luck today. The Amazon Kindle, now with a built in front light, has hit a new low price of $59. Normally selling for $89, you’ll save yourself $30 on one of the best e-readers out there. Whether for you or a loved one, there’s a lot to admire with this Kindle.

For starters, the 167 ppi glare-free display reads like actual paper, even in direct sunlight. You’ll also never have to worry about a high-demand battery, for a single charge will power the Kindle for a whole week. Not hours, a week. The built in reading light makes it possible to read anywhere, whether you’re lounging on the couch at midnight or chilling at the beach. The lamp itself is also adjustable, so you’ll always be able to re-position based on your reading situation. Speaking of reading, the Kindle is your open door to Amazon’s massive reader marketplace, featuring millions of books, newspapers, and other publications. Boasting 4GB of storage, you can also download all your Kindle content for reading on the go.

Intuitive touch controls allow you to highlight sections of text, make notes, zoom in, translate prose to different languages, and more. One of Amazon’s lightest Kindles, it feels like nothing to hold the device in one hand, while sipping coffee with the other. If you’re a Prime member, the deal perks get even better. Prime subscribers get instant access to Prime Reading, which will net you thousands of free Amazon books and other publications for no extra cost. Do keep in mind that this is an ad-supported Kindle. When the device is in standby, the lock screen will display sponsored screensavers. If you want to ditch the ads, the ad-free version model goes for $79 (down from $109).

Now $59 on Amazon, this is the ideal time to try and score a Kindle. Normally retailing for $89, that’s $30 off the reader’s normal price. If you’re inclined to buy, we say go for it, especially before the holidays enter full-swing.
