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. 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. At $199.99 for the 8GB model and $223.99 for the 32GB version, it's down to its best price outside of Prime Day. Amazon is even including a free 3-month trial of Amazon Kindle Unlimited with your purchase to sweeten the deal further.

What's more, it has a glare-free screen, so you can use it anywhere without casting harmful reflections into your face. The screen is pushed to one side making it easier for you to hold the device in one hand. Arm tired? Flip it around and use the other hand for a while. If your eyes need a rest, you can also simply pair your favorite Bluetooth headphones to the device and listen to your book using Audible.
