Amazon offers a great alternative to those hefty hardcovers: the Kindle. And now its basic version is on sale for $59.99 (regularly $79.99). Or, if you’d prefer the Kindle Paperwhite, it’s on sale for $99.99 (regularly $119.99).

What is the difference between the two? The Paperwhite has a higher resolution and picture density, as well as longer battery life (six weeks versus four weeks). It also includes a built-in light, which is useful for those who read in bed.

Of course, the basic Kindle should not be ignored. Although it might not have all of the features of the Paperwhite, it’s cheaper and a bit lighter.
