Reading the news can be a bit of a drag at the moment, and spending money on more and more streaming subscriptions can really start to eat into your monthly budget. As more of us turn to a good book to escape reality, we may be starting to realize that books can be a bit expensive, especially for newer, in-demand titles. And with local libraries closed, our avenue for free literature seems to have gone away with them. But it hasn't, at least, for many: there's a little app called Libby, and as long as you have a library card and your library supports it, you may be able to freely access thousands of books straight from your phone or Kindle.
Amazon's latest entry-level Kindle currently costs $89.99, but for today only, there's a cheaper alternative. Woot is currently selling the previous-gen Kinde for just $49.99, a $50 savings from the original MSRP.
If you've ever bought or seriously considered purchasing an e-reader, the odds that at least one Kindle made it onto your shortlist are pretty high. Amazon's family of e-readers have become so ubiquitous that Kindle has effectively replaced e-reader in the popular lexicon. The retailer is currently offering some great deals on both the base-model Kindle, available for $60 with Amazon's special offers or $75 without, and the Kindle Paperwhite, starting at $85 for the 8GB model with special offers or $100 without them.
Black Friday has come and gone, but we're not done with pre-holiday deals by a long shot. Cyber Monday is upon us, and the deals refuse to quit. A whole bunch of what we're seeing today is an extension of sales that have been running since last week, but there's plenty of new stuff, too. Here, for your convenience, we've rounded up all the best deals we've spotted.
Black Friday is barreling toward us like a freight train. Thankfully, retailers are kind enough to warn us about many of the deals they intend to run ahead of time, which helps us help you make the best possible holiday shopping decisions. Here, for your convenience, we've rounded up all the best deals we've spotted in advance.
If you're looking for an e-reader this Black Friday, you're probably checking out Amazon. The company is well known for aggressive discounts on its own line of products, and this Black Friday is no exception: Amazon is offering the lowest price yet on the updated base model Kindle, priced at $60 with special offers (down from $90) or $80 without special offers (down from $110).
Kids like their tablets, mainly because they can use them to play games, learn, and watch content. Unfortunately, they also tend to be clumsy with these devices, which is why Amazon built a special offering for children: The Fire Kids Edition. The seven-inch tablet usually sells for $100, but it's now dropped to just $60.
At the beginning of the month, Amazon introduced its revamped Fire HD 10 tablet, bringing some improvements such as USB-C connectivity and a faster processor over the previous iteration. The new device is now available on the retailer's site, both in adult and kids editions, selling for $150 and $200, respectively.
If you're looking for an e-reader, it doesn't get much better than a Kindle, especially now that you can get one on sale. Right now, the base Amazon Kindle starts at just $64.99, and the higher-end Paperwhite now starts at $89.99.
