I’m going to admit something right now, but you have to promise not to tell anyone: until earlier this week, I was still using a Barnes & Noble Nook that was about 7 years old! I know, I know… I’m not proud of it. But the good news is that I finally upgraded on Monday when I saw that the Waterproof Amazon Kindle Paperwhite dropped back down to its lowest price ever. I have to tell you — it’s awesome and I’m so happy that I finally upgraded! It’s still down to $89.99 instead of $130, so you should definitely check it out if you’re also due for an upgrade.

Here’s the key info from the product page:

  • Now available in Black or Twilight Blue
  • 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.
