“Mindle Touch” on sale for $59

“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! :)

    Interesting comments. I have a Mindle, one of the old ones without the touch screen, and I love it – precisely because it doesn’t do anything else apart from display the pages of my book. I do have a cover with a built in light, and I wouldn’t want to be without that.

      Thanks for writing, Jenny!

      I had a Mindle, too, and did think it was a good device. You would probably like the Paperwhite, if you ever went to that…it’s also a purpose built device, and the light makes it the most comfortable reading experience I’ve ever had, including paper.

      Jenny, I was using Mindle and I loved it. Then I went to Paperwhite, built-in light is much better (more convenient). But what I miss from Mindle are real buttons for page turns, I would prefer those over touchscreen.

        I’m sure Jenny (and other readers of mine) appreciate you expressing your opinion!
