Step up your reading game with a Kindle e-reader and save 35%


If you love reading and traveling worldwide, you might have a hard time carrying your collection of books with you, especially with weight limits being what they are for travel. Luckily, you can grab an e-reader like the Kindle to keep all your favorite books in one place. Even better, while this 2022 Kindle usually goes for $100, you can grab it for $65 from Amazon and spend that extra $35 in savings on more books, although it’s important to note that this version is lock screen ad-supported.

Why you should buy the 2022 Kindle e-reader

So what sets the new Kindle apart from the older ones? Well, it’s much lighter than previous versions, making it easier to carry around when you’re out and about or traveling. It also has a great 300 ppi display which gives you higher pixel density and resolution for sharper text when reading, which is always a big plus. There’s also double the amount of storage of the previous version with 16GB, which can easily fit hundreds if not thousands of books to read and several dozen audiobooks. Probably the biggest upgrade is the use of USB-C, rather than the typical micro-usb, which means one less extra cable you’ll need and keep track of.

The Kindle is also a great alternative to a laptop since you don’t easily get distracted by messages; plus, the e-ink screen is less straining for your eyes and lasts much longer than a regular tablet or smartphone. That said, remember that this version is ad-supported, which means the lock screen will show you ads. You can certainly buy the version without lock screen ads, and it’s surprisingly well-priced at $85 rather than $120. You can also buy the lock screen ad version now and then pay a one-time fee to remove the ads if you want to test it out.

If you love what you’ve seen, you can grab the Kindle at Amazon for just $65 with lock screen ads or $85 without. While you’re at it, be sure to check out our list of must-read books, as well as our list of classic sci-fi books and best classic fantasy books to grab.

Amazon’s early Black Friday sale has a 50-inch 4K TV for $200
best prime day deals 2021 insignia f50 qled 4k tv

With Black Friday slowly rolling on us, there are many great early Black Friday deals you can take advantage of, such as this North Face Black Friday sale on outdoor stuff or this Tumi Black Friday sale on wallets, bags, and suitcases. One of the things that's great to grab during Black Friday and Cyber Monday is electronics, and that's why we're already seeing great sales on things like TVs. Take, for example, this 50-inch Insignia TV deal from Amazon, which knocks $100 off the original price to bring it down to just $200, which is a steal.

Why you should buy the Insignia 50-inch Class F30 Series
One thing that's great about the F30 Series from Insignia is that it's very budget-friendly, especially since the brand was created under the premise of being budget-oriented but still provides great features. That's how you can get a 50-inch TV that gives you 4k resolution. The whole thing is also built on the Fire TV platform, so if you're in the Amazon ecosystem, this is perfect, and if you aren't, then you still get access to all the apps you'd expect on any other major smart TV platform. You might also be surprised to hear that the F30 Series supports HDR10, one of the better HDR standards, and that means you'll get excellent contrast and image quality compared to a traditional TV without HDR.
