If you're scrambling to find something to give your dad for Father's Day, why not encourage them to read more by grabbing them an e-reader? Amazon has discounted its base model Kindle by $25, making it currently $65. You can also get the ad-free version for $80, down from its usual $110 price. While $65 isn't the lowest we've seen the standard Kindle sell for, it's close to the $30 off it was over the Memorial Day long weekend.
Amazon's latest entry-level Kindle is perfect for those who want an e-reader that nails the basics. It's the first of the company's most affordable Kindles to feature an illuminated display, making it much better suited for nighttime reading. Amazon also improved contrast on the new screen and redesigned the device to give it a slimmer and sleeker design. With 4GB of built-in storage, it can also store thousands of books.
For dads who are bookworms, another option is the more expensive Paperwhite. It's $30 off at the moment, making it $100 currently. The extra bit of money gets you an e-reader with twice as much base storage, a water-resistant design and a denser 300 pixel per inch display. For context, the base model Kindle features a 167ppi screen. All told, those extra features help make the Paperwhite ideal for those who like to read more often, as well as for those who want to enjoy a book while in the tub or at the beach.
