To buy: Kindle Paperwhite, amazon.com, $80 (originally $130)

Amazon shoppers rave about this e-reader for everyday use and travel. “I love the Kindle Paperwhite. Lightweight, easy to take with you, easy to read in sunlight,” one reviewer wrote.

Another shopper emphasized how easy it was to adjust to a Kindle after reading hard copy books. “[I] was certain that I preferred to hold an actual book in my hand – I love to read. Then, [COVID-19] struck and my used bookstore closed for awhile, then opened with shortened hours and limited times to return books. It was no longer convenient to return books and shop for new [ones]. So, I gave in and purchased a Kindle. I borrow books from my local library through Libby and couldn’t be more pleased with the process of reading with my Kindle. Great features, long battery life!”
