The Kindle Paperwhite is the perfect pick for the traveling reader who can't stand looking at a screen for too long, as its display features Carta e-paper technology that doesn't show a glare in the sun and looks eerily similar to the page of a book. It doesn't require a computer to download content either, and features a built-in light for late night reading that won't disturb anyone else in the room. Luckily, Woot is having a three-day sale on refurbished 2nd-gen Kindle Paperwhite e-readers from 2013 which come with a 90-day limited Woot warranty and start at just $49.99. That's a full $80 lower than a new Kindle Paperwhite would cost you today at Amazon, so it's certainly a deal worth considering.

For $5 more, you can (and should) grab the 3G Cellular model which gives the device free 3G wireless access with no monthly fee or subscription required! That means you'll be able to download new books wherever you go without having to find a Wi-Fi network to connect with. The $50 model can connect to the internet using Wi-Fi only.

If you're an avid reader, you've probably already experienced the frustration of trying to move several boxes of heavy books to a new location. With the Kindle Paperwhite, you can bring over 1,000 books and not worry about their weight. You don't have to worry about its battery life either, as this model of the Paperwhite is capable of letting you read for up to eight weeks without needing to be recharged.

This deal is just a small part of a much larger sale on refurbished Amazon devices and accessories, and you might find a few other interesting pieces of tech you've been looking for there. Other models of the Kindle, like the Kindle Voyage, are included in the sale as well.
