Sure, you can read ebooks on your phone, tablet, or even your computer, but it just doesn’t equal the experience of reading a real book. The closest you can get to that is an e-reader, and one of the best options is an Amazon Kindle. While it may be ad-supported, that helps keep the cost down. And now you can also throw on a 44% discount.
While smartphones, tablets, and computers all have other tasks they’re designed for, the Kindle is designed just for reading. It has a 167 ppi glare-free display, which seems like you’re reading on paper, even if you’re reading in direct sunlight. The adjustable brightness allows you to read comfortably, wherever you are and regardless of the time of day.
Another difference from a tablet is that the Amazon Kindle will last for weeks on a single battery charge compared to just hours. A built-in front light allows you to read in any light. It has 8GB of storage, allowing you to keep thousands of books at the ready, all on one device.
It makes a great option for vacation. You only have to pack one small device instead of multiple books, and you don’t have to worry about running out of reading material.
On a Kindle, you won’t need to be disturbed by annoying distractions like notifications while you’re reading. Additionally, you can highlight text, get definitions, translate, and adjust the text size.
A subscription to Kindle Unlimited provides access to millions of books, newspapers, and audiobooks. You can get three months to try it out. However, the options aren’t limited to reading, as you can also listen to audiobooks with Audible when you pair your favorite earbuds or speaker through Bluetooth.
