“Mindle Touch” on sale for $59
In honor of March being National Reading Month (gee, isn’t that every month?) ;), Amazon is offering
$20 off the The entry level model, the one I call the “Mindle Touch”(at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*) making it only $59
This the least expensive Kindle at this point, and it’s certainly a serviceable device. It does have a touchscreen, but does not have the built-in light of the Paperwhite or the Voyage. As is the case with all current non-Fire Kindles, it does not have audio (so no music, audiobooks, or text-to-speech).
This could be a good “guest Kindle”, though, and might be a good Kindle for a responsible child.
I do like the Paperwhite better, but this is literally less than half the price of that $119 device at this point.
They don’t say how long the sale will last, and my guess is not long…

* I am linking to the same thing at the regular Amazon site, and at AmazonSmile. When you shop at AmazonSmile, half a percent of your purchase price on eligible items goes to a non-profit you choose. It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. Shop ’til you help!
