Reading more is a popular New Year's resolution. If you've been considering purchasing an e-reader for the first time, or you're thinking of upgrading your current one, you should seriously consider the Kindle Oasis — especially while it's on sale for just $99.99 in refurbished condition at Woot today. That's half the price that you'd pay for it in new condition. While Amazon recently released an updated model with a new color adjustable front light, the rest of the specs remained pretty much unchanged so you can save by going for the previous-gen model on sale. The units at Woot are listed as used as there may be some cosmetic belmishes, though they have been inspected and restored to fully working condition by an Amazon technician and come with a 90-day warranty.
