Amazon is selling select Kindle eReaders for up to 31% off. You can save on the purchase of a Kindle Scribe or Kindle Paperwhite, but my pick for the best deal is the Kindle Paperwhite Kids for $110.
For $10 more than the price of a Paperwhite, you get a cover, no ads on the lock screen, a 1-year subscription to Amazon Kids+ and a 2-year worry-free guarantee.
While some folks are hesitant to invest in Amazon’s ecosystem, here are my secrets for not getting too locked into Amazon’s ecosystem, while still finding plenty to read:
- I borrow a lot of eBooks from my public library and have them sent to my Kindle, where I can read them free for three weeks.
- I buy DRM-free eBooks from sources like Humble Bundle and StoryBundle and use Amazon’s send-to-Kindle service to load them on my eReader.

I use Kindle the same way. I have purchased the occasional book from Amazon, but the majority of my ebooks come from the library or from other DRM-free platforms.
You can only find plenty of classics (public domain, I suppose) free around the internet.
