Amazon takes good care of its devices: Echo Dots are routinely discounted, and now the Kindle Paperwhite is on sale at a serious discount. Whether it's an 8GB or 32GB model, with or without special offers, you will save at least $40.

Amazon refreshed the Paperwhite in late 2018, and it's an all-around solid update. It features a sharp 6-inch glare-free touch display. Like turning the pages of a physical book, you can easily swipe with a finger forward or backward.

The Paperwhite is fully IPX8 waterproof at depths up to 2 meters (6½ feet) for 60 minutes, so it's safe to read in the tub, on a boat or at the beach. Since it has an e-ink display with a controllable backlight, you should get weeks of battery life. You'll have access to the thousands of e-books that Amazon offers, which means you should never run out.

The Paperwhite has earned 4.2 out of 5 stars on more than 2,700 customer reviews on Amazon.com, and it's Prime eligible. Here's the full pricing breakdown:

  • 8GB Amazon Kindle Paperwhite with Special Offers ($89.99, originally $129.99; amazon.com)
  • 32GB Amazon Kindle Paperwhite with Special Offers ($114.99, originally $159.99; amazon.com)
