You don't have to spend a ton of money to get your hands on great tech. Today only, Woot is offering the 8th-generation Amazon Kindle for only $49.99. This device is the previous-gen Kindle originally released in 2016. Though it was replaced in 2019 by a new model, the 8th-gen device is still an awesome pick up, especially at this price. Unlike a lot of Woot deals, it's offered in new condition with a 1-year warranty, too. If you're stuck inside because of Coronavirus, it's not a bad time to smag an e-reader to help keep yourself entertained.

The deal given is no longer valid and we do not have a better one. However, we have found some similar deals

The Kindle features a glare-free display and a battery that lasts for weeks on a single charge. This deal is on the model with special offers, which are tasteful, unobtrusive ads that display on your lockscreen. The device itself is thin and lightweight, and the e-ink display reads like real paper. Note that this model does not feature a backlight like the 2019 Kindle, so if you want to read in the dark, pick up a cheap book light.
