Kindles are the most eye-friendly way to read digital books, and the battery life is outstanding (about a month per charge).

- Kindle for $70 ($20 off): If you're looking for an ebook reader, the 2019 Kindle has everything you need (8/10, WIRED Recommends ). This model uses a 6-inch E Ink capacitive touchscreen for reading, and it lights up so you can read in the dark. There's no water resistance though, and it still uses a MicroUSB charging port.
- Kindle Paperwhite for $100 ($30 off): The Kindle Paperwhite is an upgrade worth considering. The touchscreen is noticeably clearer (300 pixels per inch vs. 167 for the standard) and the light is better. The Paperwhite is also rated IPX8, meaning it can sit in 2 meters of water for two hours. That makes bathtub reading a little more relaxing.
