woot! deal: Kindle Touch for $54.99

Thanks to readers Brian and D. Knight for the heads-up on this!

woot! (owned by Amazon) has a deal today (while it lasts) on  a refurbished Kindle Touch for $54.99 (plus shipping).

woot! deals tend to sell-out (I was a little surprised this one hadn’t yet), so I wouldn’t wait if you want one (or more…you can get up to 3).

This is the forerunner of the Kindle Paperwhite. It doesn’t have a built-in light…but it does have sound (which includes text-to-speech).

That makes this model particularly attractive to some people…I typically listen to TTS for hours a week in the car.

It has a four out of five star average on Amazon, with 8,358 reviews at time of writing. The Paperwhite does have a higher average: 4.4 stars.

If you were to buy a refurb on Amazon right now, it’s $79, so this is about a $25 savings.

Thanks for the heads-up!
