Amazon’s new waterproof Kindle Paperwhite is awesome in every way. The high-resolution display is gorgeous, the lighting makes it easy to see at night, and it’s waterproof so you can read in the bath or even in a pool without having to worry about damaging your device. If you’re a heavy reader though, the 8GB of internal storage can disappear pretty quickly, and the problem is that the upgraded version with 32GB of storage is super expensive at $160. Want to get more room for books and save a ton of money in the process? Amazon is selling refurbs right now for just $99.99, which is $30 less than the $130 you’d pay for an 8GB model if you buy it new. This is a killer price and we would be shocked if it didn’t sell out, so definitely hurry if you want to get in on the action.

Here’s some additional info from the product page:

  • A Certified Refurbished Kindle Paperwhite is refurbished, tested, and certified to look and work like new.
  • The thinnest, lightest Kindle Paperwhite yet—with a flush-front design and 300 ppi glare-free display that reads like real paper even in bright sunlight.
  • Now waterproof, so you’re free to read and relax at the beach, by the pool, or in the bath.
  • Enjoy twice the storage with 8 GB. Or choose 32 GB to hold more magazines, comics, and audiobooks.
  • Now with Audible. Pair with Bluetooth headphones or speakers to listen to your story.
  • A single battery charge lasts weeks, not hours.
  • The built-in adjustable light lets you read indoors and outdoors, day and night.
  • Get instant access to new releases and bestsellers, plus over a million titles at $2.99 or less.
