The new Kindle Paperwhite e-reader, released in November 2018, is back on sale for $95, or $35 off its list price of $130. It hit $90 during the holidays last year, but it's still a very good price for our favorite e-reader.

Meanwhile, the new entry-level Kindle, which features an integrated light, is also being discounted: it's $65, which is $25 off. That's also a good deal, but the Paperwhite is arguably worth the extra $30 because it has a higher-resolution display (and is waterproof).

If you're shopping for someone who's looking for a dedicated e-reader, this is a great deal. The new Paperwhite is the Goldilocks in Amazon's line:

  • It's 10% thinner and lighter than the previous version.
  • It has a "flush-front" design with a back made of a softer, grippy material instead of hard plastic. 
  • It's fully waterproof like the high-end Kindle Oasis and has a plastic screen that Amazon says is shatter- and scratch-resistant.
  • It has built-in Bluetooth for integration with Amazon's Audible audiobook service.

It was an enthusiastic CNET Editors' Choice at $130. At $95, it's a very good deal. Read the full CNET review of the 2018 Kindle Paperwhite.)
