2. Kindle Paperwhite Wi-Fi
If you can’t wait for Amazon to offer a deal on the Kindle Paperwhite, grab one from Paytm at an effective price of Rs. 8799 (MRP Rs. 10,999). It’s one of the lowest prices we’ve seen on the new Paperwhite. Use the promo code TAB20 to get 20% cashback in your Paytm Wallet. For those who spend a significant amount of their time reading, an e-book reader like Kindle Paperwhite is a must-buy.
For one, it enhances your overall reading experience by reducing the screen glare which you normally get exposed to while reading on a smartphone, tablet or a laptop. It’s probably the next best thing to printed books. The 4GB in-built space ensures you can keep a large number of books on your Kindle Paperwhite. Amazon also sells Kindle e-books at a relatively cheaper price compared to their print variants.
