E-book readers are amazing devices for book lovers, as you can have access to a library’s worth of books in the palm of your hand. If you want an e-book reader for the holidays, or if you want to give one as a gift, you should take a look at Kindle deals, including the 8 GB version of the Kindle Oasis that’s available on Amazon for $270. There’s not much time left if you want to get the device in time for Christmas though, so you should click that Buy Now button as soon as you can.
The Kindle Oasis, Digital Trends’ top overall choice among the best e-book readers for 2020, features a 7-inch, 300 ppi Paperwhite display that uses the latest e-ink technology, so it looks like you’re still reading from the paper pages of a book. You also have the option of adjusting the screen’s shade from white light to warm amber, depending on your preference, though the e-book reader also comes with an adaptive front light that automatically tweaks the screen’s brightness, depending on your environment.
With an IPX8 rating, the Kindle Oasis is safe against splashes of water and rain, and can even be immersed in to up 6.5 feet of fresh water for up to an hour. The e-book reader is also compatible with Audible audiobooks if you have an account — all you need to do is to pair the device with Bluetooth headphones. You can also tap and hold on a word to look for its definition in the dictionary, and you can also select sentences to highlight them and share on social media.
When comparing the Kindle Oasis and Kindle Paperwhite, the Kindle Oasis has a bigger screen, faster charging time, and page turn buttons, which makes it a better choice than its smaller counterpart. You can also adjust the text size and boldness of the text that you’re reading on the device, and it can even help you find books to read through the Kindle Store.
There are different Kindle models to choose from, but the Kindle Oasis is arguably the best version of the e-book reader. The 8 GB version of the Kindle Oasis is available on Amazon for $270, and if you want it as a gift for yourself or for a loved one, you can get it in time for Christmas if you click that Buy Now button right away.
