Hate carrying around hefty hardcovers but love reading the newest bestsellers? Tired of weighing down luggage with multiple tomes but unable to travel without lots of book options (who knows what you'll be in the mood for once you arrive)? If you’re not yet acquainted with the magic of a Kindle, we are pleased to have the opportunity to fill you in. And even more delighted to tell you that right now, this top-selling e-reader is on sale. There's never been a better time to grab one.

This portable e-reader houses all your purchased books, and just keeps weighing in at slightly over 6 ounces. It also grants you access to Amazon’s Kindle library, where you can shop thousands upon thousands of titles and have them delivered straight to your e-reader.

Right now, this Kindle, with a built-in front light, is on sale from $110 to just $70. That's a savings of $40, and the all-time lowest price on this super-popular e-reader. With over 33,000 perfect five-star reviews, this model is a champion in the field. And this purchase? A sure thing.

Amazon will give you free shipping too. But if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get so much more — access to new movies and TV shows, discounts at Whole Foods, exclusive sales and two-day shipping on many, many items. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here.

Made with a 167ppi glare-free screen, the Kindle offers a display bright enough to mimic the effect of reading from an actual page, without the headache-inducing glare. The built-in adjustable light shifts to accommodate the setting.

Some shoppers love the Kindle more than the (much pricier) Apple iPad Mini. "...First of all, the display is gorgeous," raved one five-star reviewer. "I love how crisp the lettering is and how the pages actually look like real paper. There's barely any glare on the screen when held up in sunlight — a huge advantage over the iPad Mini ...."

Amazon shoppers also rave about the battery life on this Kindle, pointing out that the charge lasts for weeks.

It even includes Audible, so you can listen to an audiobook if you’re on the move (or just want to give your eyes a rest).

Another valued feature is the automatic power off: Close the case over the screen, and your device goes to sleep, preserving your page and battery power. So effortless.

Let this Kindle sale launch a new chapter, where you boost your literary intake, enjoy winter more and lighten your load.
