Did you hear that Amazon is offering a “special offers” Kindle e-reader for $114? It’s $25 less than their next-cheapest model.
According to Amazon, this Kindle will have ads in the screensaver space and on the home page, so you won’t actually have to look at the ads while you’re reading a book.
You’ll also be eligible for special promotions, such as $10 for a $20 Amazon gift card.
I like ebooks. I’ve read several of them on my iPod Touch using the free Kindle app. But I do a lot of my reading in lowlight while rocking a sleepy baby, so I don’t know that I’d get much use out of a Kindle right now.
I still think that at some point, I’ll get one. Surely the price will keep on dropping, right?
Where are you on the ereader debate? And would you pay more for an ad-free version?
Part of me thinks that if they’re going to be making money on ads, they ought to have this version much cheaper than $114.
