There's still time to get in some of that summer reading! Hook yourself up with a new e-reader because Amazon is having a huge 45% off sale on the Kindle Paperwhite (opens in new tab) in multiple configurations. You can get the base Paperwhite down to just $70.99 (opens in new tab). It normally sells for around $130, so today's deal is $59 off. It's a crazy low price that's $15 better than any deal we've ever seen before. You can upgrade to versions with more memory or more features like a Paperwhite with LTE and Wi-Fi (opens in new tab) that's $72 off its normal price. The deals are available in every color including Black, Plum, Sage, and Twilight Blue.

The Paperwhite is the quintessential e-reader, and it has all the features you'd want from a device dedicated to reading. The biggest strength is that e-ink display designed to look like real paper. The best part about it, of course, is that you can take the Paperwhite anywhere and read even if you're out in the sun because your books won't get drowned out by glare. There's also a light on the front so you can keep going after dark. It's nice to be able to just pick it up and start reading anywhere without having to worry about how the light is going to impact you.

Other features include the ability to highlight your favorite passages, look up words using the dictionary, translate other words you might stumble across, and even adjust the text size to make it easier to read. Download and store thousands of books with Amazon's library. You can even sign up for Audible and listen to audiobooks while using Bluetooth headphones.

The Paperwhite is also waterproof, so if you plan on hanging out near the pool you don't have to worry about a little splash. The basic ad-supported version has 8GB of storage and built-in Wi-Fi. You can still upgrade and save, though, including going for the ad-free version or upgrading the storage to 32GB. If you upgrade to the version with LTE (opens in new tab) you don't need to have a Wi-Fi network nearby to download something new.
