I love to read, and I'm a big fan of dedicated e-readers like the Amazon Kindle. Sure, I can just as easily enjoy e-books on my phone and tablet, but they're full of distractions. It's hard to focus on a novel when things like text messages and TikTok are clamoring for my attention.
Want distraction-free reading for yourself? For a limited time, the Amazon Kindle is just $55, the lowest price to date. In fact, that's actually $5 below the Black Friday sale price. It won't arrive in time for Christmas, unfortunately, but it should come just a few days after (at least based on today's delivery estimates.)
This is Amazon's ad-supported Kindle, meaning you'll see ads — mostly for books — on the lockscreen. Want my two cents? Big deal: One swipe and you're past that screen. And it's what's past that screen that matters.
If you've never owned a Kindle before, the device is notable for its paper-like display, outdoor readability and weeks of battery life. All these amenities make it vastly superior to a phone or tablet, both of which can cause eyestrain (to say nothing of sleep disruption owing to blue-light emissions).
The Kindle can also play audiobooks; just pair your Bluetooth headphones or speaker if you prefer to listen to your stories.
