Now is a good opportunity to buy one of the best no-frills e-readers available. Amazon is selling the latest generation of its standard Kindle reader for only $50 during a one-day sale, or $70 for an ad-free version. These are the lowest prices we’ve seen since Black Friday and make them easy choices if you don’t need water resistance or other extras. There is also a gold box sale on Kindle e-books if you need some reading material.

The entry-level Kindle may be from 2019, but it’s still a very competitive e-reader in 2022. The touchscreen, front-backlit, high-contrast display, and compact design make it easy to use and read in many situations, whether in bed or on the beach. More importantly, you’re getting full access to the Kindle book ecosystem for one low price – if you don’t care what the Paperwhite offers, why pay more?
There are limits you should consider. The lack of waterproofing will keep you from reading by the pool, and the 4GB of storage might be limited if you want a large on-device library or tend to read visually intense books that eat up storage. For most people, though, the regular Kindle is enough.
