(Hey, that “credibility bookcase” for your Zoom calls isn’t going to assemble itself.)
If you’re starting to run out of room for your collection, consider compiling a virtual library of ebook titles — there are thousands upon thousands to choose from. With one of Amazon’s Kindle e-readers, you can carry around a bunch of them at once for on-the-go reading (which will come in more handy as soon as it’s actually safe to go places, but still).

The ultra-portable Kindle Paperwhite from 2018 is Amazon’s thinnest, lightest, and arguably best value e-reader yet, sporting a waterproof, flush-front design with a 6-inch, 300 ppi display that has zero glare even in bright sunlight — perfect for beach or poolside reading once All Of This is over. It comes equipped with Amazon’s premium Whispersync and Whispersync for Voice services, which let you seamlessly switch between the written and narrated versions of your books across different Kindle devices and apps, on top of three free months of Kindle Unlimited. (Typically $9.99/month, that gets you free rein of over 1 million books and thousands of audiobooks — click here to see the full catalog.)
Choose from four different colors (Black, Plum, sage, or Twilight Blue) and two different storage capacities: The 8GB model is on sale for just $94.99 (a $35 discount), while the 32GB version will run you only $119.99 (a $40 savings).
BEST BUDGET PICK: Kindle

2019’s entry-level Kindle is a no-frills e-reader that comes with a 167 ppi glare-free display, a long-lasting battery, 8GB of storage space, and a four-LED front-light system that enhances its visibility in dimly lit spaces. As with the aforementioned Kindle Paperwhite, Amazon throws in three months of Kindle Unlimited for the extremely reasonable price of free.
Grab one on sale in Black or White for just $64.99 — that’s 28% off its $84.99 MSRP (and only $5 away from its all-time-low Cyber Weekend pricing).

It’s designed only for reading — i.e., there’s no way for your child to get on the internet or social media — and free of distracting games, ads, and videos. Plus, each one comes with a year’s worth of Amazon Kids+ (normally $2.99/month for Prime members) for access to thousands of kid-friendly titles and a two-year, worry-free guarantee for your peace of mind.
This puppy is currently sitting at its all-time-low price of $79.99, which is 27% off its usual retail price of $109.99. Take your pick from four fun case styles: Blue, Pink, Rainbow Birds (pictured below), or Space Station.
