We're in the same boat. It still works for most of my purposes.
Mine really started to show flaws, sadly. I couldn't highlight things anymore cause it would freak out. When I went to the next page sometimes it didn't pick up the touch and when you pushed again you were two pages further. A lot of the times when you went to the next page it would still slightly show the previous page...


Let me check. The one I have (Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition) is currently €189,99 and I paid €139,99 so it was a €50 discount which is better than anything black friday would offer.

I have such little patience for things, so I'd end up wanting to throw the reader against the wall with all those problems.

I bet it was about 50 to 60 dollars off

You were right, Tina!

It's good to know that Prime day is better than Black Friday.

I will wait and see and probably pick a new one later in the year.
I will keep my old one because I love the word games on it.

I feel like they do this on purpose to make you get a new one.

But at least you got a good deal.

IT was incredibly frustrating. I didn't use it for years but felt like I still couldn't justify getting a new one but my sister got one so it was good motivation. I've been reading books on my computer for years now

That's good!


Kindles are on sale at Best Buy website! I'm taking mine back to refund the difference of almost 80 dollars. It's only been a week.

I am the same way. It's weird because I can read a fanfic on a laptop/desktop but I can't do a book. I need some kind of more portable device for a book

Same here. Fan fic I can read on a laptop.

Books, can't do it.

Don't know why that is. It's still many chapters, there are still words involved....

I just think my mind knows there's a difference between fan fic and a published book.

Same. And I think the brain also knows you CAN'T get the fanfic elsewhere so it's online or nowhere.

Amazon is offering 30% off plus $40 book credit until August 13.
Probably trying to get people like me to get a new one.
