The Amazon Kindle is the basic, plain-vanilla version of a Kindle, available in black or white. The battery lasts for ages and it’s extremely sturdy, though not waterproof, which might be an issue if you like reading in the bath. In addition to reading, the latest version allows you to listen to audiobooks via Audible, if you have bluetooth headphones. You can actually switch back and forth between an ebook and an audiobook, which can be useful if you’ve got a long commute that involves sitting as well as walking, but does cost a bit extra (you have to buy both the e-book and the audiobook, though Amazon does offer a discount). Price-wise this is the best Kindle to get, as it’s the only one coming in at under $100. You can also save an additional bit of money by buying a Kindle ‘with ads’, which advertises books on the main screen when you’re not using it. If you’d find that annoying, make sure to select the Kindle ‘without ads’ option.
