Kindle Paperwhite Plum Sage

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

This slim device gives you access to a veritable trove of books. The latest Paperwhite is waterproof and has twice the storage of the previous-gen. You can even get it with three months of Amazon Kindle Unlimited for free.

The Paperwhite is Amazon's best Kindle device for most people thanks to its balance of features and affordable price tag.

The current Kindle Paperwhite's latest additions make it an even better option if you're just getting started with e-readers. The new design changes are subtle, but if you've used a Paperwhite in the past, you will appreciate the fact that the screen is now flush with the body. That makes turning pages that much more seamless, and it just feels better in-hand.

But what sets the Paperwhite apart is the IPX8 certification, which lets you take it to the pool. That's a feature that was traditionally exclusive to the Oasis, so it's great to see the mainstream Paperwhite also picking up a waterproof chassis. Then there's Audible integration over Bluetooth, which means you get to pair your Bluetooth headphones to the e-reader and stream Aubile audiobooks on the go.

If you're stuck for something to read or you're a real bookworm that just can't get enough, Amazon is also offering three months of its Kindle Unlimited service for free with your Kindle Paperwhite purchase right now. With its myriad of titles, Kindle Unlimited could keep you reading non-stop if you wished. You can keep up to ten titles at a time, and when you feel like swapping them out, the process is seamless. After the two months are up, it will renew automatically for the normal rate. You can cancel at any time with no penalties for doing so, though you might find that $10 per month is a great value for all that Kindle Unlimited offers.
