Today is the last day to get $20 off the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite. If you are looking for a front-lit, dedicated e-ink reading device, this one is a great choice. My husband and I both have Paperwhites and love them! In my husband’s case, this replaced the first Kindle Touch. He loves the front-lit screen on the Paperwhite.
Do you have one of these or replace an earlier model KIndle with one? Sound off in the comments and let me know what you think of the Paperwhite.
And for the online traffic report: Best Buy’s website was down this morning when I checked (more details here). Walmart.com and NewEgg were running a bit slow for me this morning. And it’s not even Cyber Monday yet! Happy shopping!

I had this blog post ready to go yesterday about Amazon’s holiday promotions which included various Kindles bundled with Kindle Unlimited subscriptions. I was surprised when I found out this morning that they had reduced the prices even more on the bundles! The price updates are in red.
First, Amazon is bundling sales of its Kindle and Kindle Fire Devices with 6 months of their Kindle Unlimited subscription serve for a savings of about $40. According to the promotion page, there are currently 4 choices:
The basic touchscreen Kindle with six months of Kindle Unlimited for $ 99$79.
The Fire HD 7 with six months of Kindle Unlimited for $169$139.
The Kindle Paperwhite with six months of Kindle Unlimited for $149$129.
The Fire HD with six months of Kindle Unlimited for $129$109.
Amazon.com is also offering $40 off if you purchase Prime with a new Fire HD tablet. The offer seems to exclude the Fire Kids Edition: That device’s product page does not show the Prime banner.The Fire HD 6, 7 and 7″ HDX are all on sale today for an extra $20 off.
And finally, if you really wanted one but thought the price was too high, Amazon has reduced the price for the unlocked, 32Gb Fire Phone. You can now purchase one for only $199. The deal includes a year of Amazon Prime. You can still get the AT & T version for 99 cents with a two year contract.
If you like to shop online and are ready to get a head start on your holiday shopping, Amazon has already started their Black Friday deals sales. New lightning deals are now appearing every 10 minutes. You never know what you are going to see in these sales- last year I saw a trolling motor for a boat as a lightning deal! 🙂
If you or someone you know is an avid reader of e-book Westerns, Amazon has a great deal going on you may be interested in. Until October 23, 2014, you can choose from 201 Westerns on sale for only $1.99 each. Authors include some of the greats in the genre: Louis L’Amour, Zane Grey, Max Brand, Ernest Haycox, Will Henry, Cotton Smith and many more.

Daily Links are interesting links I discover as I go about my online day. The frequency and number of links posted depend upon the daily news.
I actually had quite a bit of interest in my blog entry announcing that Ed McBain’s books are now available for the Kindle. Well, today only, all 35 titles of the Ed McBain 87th Precinct mysteries are on sale for only 99 cents each! Normally, these are $4.99 each.
