Amazon’s Black Friday Sales Begin Today – Here’s What’s Good
As promised, Amazon’s Black Friday deals start today, and they are so good that they are well worth tearing yourself away from the table.
Amazon doesn’t have either of their newer Kindles on sale, but they did put the older Kindle Paperwhite on sale as well as several Kindle Fire models. Amazon also knocked $80 off the price of the 2018 iPad (I would get one to replace the iPad I misplaced 3 years ago, but I missed out).
- Paperwhite 4 – $129 (it comes with 6 months free, Kindle Unlimited)
- Paperwhite 3 – $79
- Paperwhite 3 essentials bundle ($60 off) – $119
Other eReader deals
- Kobo Aura 2 ($30 off) – $99
- Sony DPT-RP1 Digital Paper ($100 off) – $599
- Sony DPT-CP1 Digital Paper ($100 off) – $499

Either a Fire tablet or my new Samsung smartphone with a 5.5″ screen.
The thing is, I am reading a lot more non-fiction boks at the moment, and ereaders just aren’t as good at jumping around from section to section and book to book compared to tablets.

I couldn’t help myself – I ordered the previous generation (7th) Paperwhite without Special Offers for $80 plus a Fintie Folio case (ZD Antique Bronze) for $15 as an "upgrade" from my Touch.
I’m losing audio and TTS for a 300ppi screen with light. Both have only 4GB. I’ll be curious to compare performance since I’ve read the Paperwhite becomes sluggish when hundreds of titles are downloaded…
