If you just want an e-reader and you’re not worried about all the extra gubbins, Amazon have lopped £22 off their Paperwhite today. There’s free delivery on this too, and this has got a battery that will last for weeks rather than hours.
No colour screen, no apps, no distractions, just an easy-to-read screen that works in direct sunlight. There’s a “comfortable” font, paper-esque appearance and an adjustable light for day and night reading.
If you don’t want to get it from Amazon directly, you’ll find it for the same price in the mighty Argos. Full specs include that 6″ e-ink screen, WiFi and 4GB of on-board storage (enough for thousands of books).
