In a surprising pre-Christmas deal, Amazon cuts prices of Kindle Paperwhite and Oasis


If you buy an item via this post, we may get a small affiliate fee. Details.

You can buy Kindle Paperwhite for $109, and the Oasis for $199. There is still no deal on Kindle Scribe.

In a new, never-seen-before shopping event, called New Year 2023 Sale, Amazon offers thousands of products at prices lowered by even 50%.

Surely, the chances are small that any of the products ordered today will arrive before Christmas.

The only safe way to buy a last-minute gift is a digital subscription, gift card, or a digital content (such as ebooks, audiobooks, or movies) that can be delivered electronically.

The new shopping event is, in fact, not intended to fix the missing gift problem. It’s more about helping you make a fresh start in the New Year, and help accomplish New Year resolution, regardless of what they are.

So, the Kindle deals in the New Year 2023 Sale are addressed to you, not a book lover in your life.

You are probably wondering whether there is a deal on Kindle Scribe. Sorry, not yet. The first deal should arrive in March 2023, to celebrate the National Reading Month.

Which Kindle deals are available in the New Year 2023 Sale on Amazon?

Get Kindle Paperwhite 5 for $109.99 – the Paperwhite is a powerful device with a 6.8-inch display, which gives you 13% more display space than the regular 6-inch display. The price is the 8 GB variant with lockscreen ads is now down to $109, compared to the regular $139, and $95 on Black Friday 2022. You save $30 – enough to grab a decent case cover.

The Midnight Library

by Matt Haig

A Conversation About Rain

Nineteen years before she decided to die, Nora Seed sat in the warmth of the small library at Hazeldene School in the town of Bedford. She sat at a low table staring at a chess board.

‘Nora dear, it’s natural to worry about your future,’ said the librarian, Mrs Elm, her eyes twinkling.

Mrs Elm made her first move. A knight hopping over the neat row of white pawns. ‘Of course, you’re going to be worried about the exams. But you could be anything you want to be, Nora. Think of all that possibility. It’s exciting.’

‘Yes. I suppose it is.’

‘A whole life in front of you.’

‘A whole life.’

‘You could do anything, live anywhere. Somewhere a bit less cold and wet.’

Nora pushed a pawn forward two spaces.

It was hard not to compare Mrs Elm to her mother, who treated Nora like a mistake in need of correction. For instance, when she was a baby her mother had been so worried Nora’s left ear stuck out more than her right that she’d used sticky tape to address the situation, then disguised it beneath a woollen bonnet.
