Update: This deal has expired.

Amazon has its Kindle Paperwhite on sale for only $79.99 right now. Usually this would run you $120, and the reviews are stellar. The last time we saw this deal, it was a Prime member-exclusive, but today it's available for everyone. As an alternative, you could get the Kindle for the same price, but that model lacks a backlight and it doesn't have as good of a battery life either.

The Kindle Paperwhite is available in both black and white. Its touchscreen display is easy on the eyes with no screen glare and feels akin to reading words on actual paper, as opposed to regular mobile device screens which can cause eye fatigue after staring for some time. A single battery charge can last for weeks which is pretty awesome too. As a bonus, it doesn't have the built-in distractions that a smartphone does, so you will actually get some reading done and not end up crushing candies or running through temples. There is an all-new Kindle Paperwhite model which was released last month, but it hasn't seen a discount just yet.

This isn't the only offer available right now, as you can also snag great deals on the Fire Kids Edition Tablets and the Fire Edition Smart TVs.
