I’m not terribly fussy about how I read. I used an old Kindle Keyboard until a stray pen in my backpack broke its display, and I’ve long happily used a Paperwhite without so much as considering the fancier Kindles Amazon has released since I got it back in 2013. Hell, half the time I’m just reading on the Kindle…
When Amazon released the Kindle Oasis back in the spring of 2016, we said it was the best e-reader ever made. But that doesn’t mean it was perfect, and in the year and half since it came out, it’s become clear there was room for improvement. With a starting price of $290, the old Oasis was a bit pricey, it had a…
If you’ve flown at all in the last few years, you know the TSA wants you to pull out your laptop and place it in a separate bin for security screening. Well: now they want you to do the same with your tablets, e-readers, and even game consoles.
I’ve got a struggle y’all. I’ve been using the new Kobo Aura H2O off and on for the last few weeks, switching between reading on it with reading on my overpriced but super damn slick Amazon Kindle Oasis. The two aren’t entirely comparable: The Oasis costs $290 and the Kobo goes for $180. But the big difference between…
If you’ve got Prime and enjoy reading, Amazon’s offering some of the best Kindle discounts we’ve ever seen right now, with $30 off the entry level models, and $50 off the rarely discounted Voyage.
Amazon just kicked off another of its periodic Fire and Kindle device deals, with $10-$20 off various devices, and up to $45 off bundles that include chargers, cases, and more.
While not nearly as good as the Prime-only deals we saw last month, if you’re in the market for a Kindle e-reader this holiday season, you can save $20-$30 today on three different models.
As long as you don’t mind buying refurbs (and considering they come with a standard warranty, you shouldn’t), Amazon’s offering some incredible Kindle e-reader discounts today.
$20 Kindle e-reader discounts pop up every few months or so, but Prime members can currently save $30 on the standard Kindle, the Kindle Paperwhite, and the Kindle for Kids bundle, or $50 on the Kindle Voyage (which almost never goes on sale). Just note that these deals are for Prime members only, and you won’t see…
The Kindle e-reader has been with us in one form or another since 2007, and it’s still going strong. It’s a super simple device, and for most people, that’s a huge part of its appeal. But don’t let its simplicity fool you into thinking there aren’t any interesting tweaks you can make to your beloved e-reader. Here are…
If you own one of Amazon’s pre-2012 Kindles, listen up: there’s a critical update that you need to install if you want to keep using it, and you must do so before March 22nd.
I’ve been using Kindles since ebooks were barely a thing, and while the hardware has come a very long way, the user interface has been lingering. At long last, the much-neglected homescreen is being fixed.
For a limited time, Amazon’s taking $20 off the sticker price of several e-Ink Kindle models, including the first deal we’ve seen on the new, 300ppi Kindle Paperwhite.
Print is not dead. Actually, it’s e-books that are having a rough time right now. The Association of American Publishers says e-book sales slumped about 10 percent in the first five months of 2015.
We’re talking the old-fashioned kind. A “new” Dr. Seuss book, What Pet Should I Get? is cause for rejoicing, and likely the purchase of a paper copy, if you’re into Dr. Seuss. But do you really buy books these days?
The Kindle Paperwhite just updated to a higher resolution screen for the same $120 price. I probably don’t need to tell you it’s better than the last Paperwhite. It definitely is.
An eReader lets travelers bring thousands of books with them on their journeys, but what if each of those stories was customized to wherever they happened to be at the moment?
