Amazon's waterproof Kindle Paperwhite is on sale for its best ever price today only

The all-new Kindle Paperwhite (opens in new tab) is down to $89.99 at Amazon for one day only. That's $40 off this recently-released device, and the most significant price drop in its history. The Paperwhite didn't go on sale for Black Friday and saw its first price drop just before Christmas. Today's deal beats that drop by a further $10 and makes the newest Kindle Paperwhite the most affordable it's ever been.

As well as taking $40 off the entry-level Paperwhite, you can score the same savings on every model currently available including versions with more storage (opens in new tab), no special offers (opens in new tab), and free cellular connectivity (opens in new tab).

The Kindle Paperwhite is the thinnest, lightest model yet. It has a built-in adjustable light to help you read at night, and the glare-free screen is easy on your eyes, too. It's waterproof, so you can read at the beach or in the bath. It can connect to your headphones for audiobook listening as well. The battery lasts for weeks at a time, and the display is higher-resolution than the original Kindle. This model also features Bookerly, which is an Amazon-exclusive font that was designed specifically for reading on digital screens. The display does feature special offers on the lockscreen, which are tastefully designed and unobtrusive.

To make things sweeter, Kindle books tend to be extremely affordable, especially when compared to traditional bound books. At least once per week, Thrifter posts a new Kindle book sale, but oftentimes the deals pop up more frequently than that. Prime members (opens in new tab) also get a free Kindle book (opens in new tab) each month. With Kindle Unlimited (opens in new tab), $10 per month gets you access to thousands of titles for free.

For just $40 more, you can get a Kindle Paperwhite Essentials Bundle (opens in new tab) with a leather case and a power adapter. This bundle makes a ton of sense if you plan on buying a cover anyway.

This sale ends today, so don't miss your chance to get your hands on the newest Kindle Paperwhite for less.
