Are you serious?
By that logic anyone in the developed world isn't allowed to complain about anything.

- Excuse me waiter there's a fly in my soup.
- There are people dying of starvation in Africa and you're complaining about a little fly? Be thankful you're getting that extra protein.

- Damn the office AC has stopped working.
- There are people having to do back breaking work in this heat all day long and you're worried about it getting a little warm.

- The car has broken down, it's gonna cost hundreds to fix it.
- There's people around the world who walk for miles just to get water and you can't even cycle a few miles let alone walk. Besides those hundreds of £ could support that family for years.

The £39.99 by credit card offer looks cheaper, initially, but it doesn't get you the free Kindle.

Ordered, with thanks, got the free Kindle version/offer.

A Kindle and some kindling. Heat added.

Wonder what the benefit for them to keep selling this. The magazine is always thrown away while price is not that profitable for them too

Obviously a good deal, however I have to say that I find the Kindle app on my phone absolutely fine...

Offer not visible through TCB! Still a good deal without though.

Karen Gillan is the love of my life, so have some heat

Can you choose to have a white kindle rather than the black version?

Not voted either way, mainly because it is disgraceful that the £59.99 device has forced adware. Even more despicable that Amazon make you pay an extra tenner for a device without it. Obviously in this instance the 'free' device is an adware version.

Proprietary format plus adware, surprised how the Kindle has the eReader market sewn up.

The magazine makes its money from advertising. Amazon make money from people buying books & people subscribe to get the kindle. Smart marketing.

Err...it is an opinion, I still find it disgraceful they are pumping adware and speaking of which if they will remove ads for free and happily take a tenner from others that do not realise you can, the marketing stinks even more.

I don't need to order one, I already have an eReader that isn't a walled garden. As said not voted either way.

You think charging £60 for an eReader is some kind of bargain?

There are children dying of starvation, but some people get het up about adverts on an ereader.

I think you need to worry about more things than adverts.

The way the adverts are shown on the Kindle, you don't have to watch them do you? They are on the screen when the Kindle is in standby mode. It's not like you have to watch an advert to get to read the next chapter.

It's not disgraceful, just standard corporate marketing behaviour- how many apps are there where you pay to have them removed?

They don't make you pay an extra tenner for anything - you can choose which tier of payment, or not at all. Technically, they knock a tenner off for the subsidised "special offers" device - the ads are that unobtrusive, I forgot I had them undok reading this thread and I couldn't tell you what a single one is for on any of my kindle or Fire devices.

There's certainly far worse behaviour to worry and get all het up about than this first world non-problem!

It is an opinion as said, counter arguments are what are turning it into a 'first world problem', and others getting 'het up' about my comment.

As said, it is amazing how Amazon have sewn up the eReader market with a proprietary format and adware.

Advertising inside the mag

Do you get actual mags or is just a digital download to your new device (which would make more sense to me?)

Your right - I haven't eaten for at least 2 hours now.

I don't have an opinion on the matter. I looked at the deal to check it's not a Paperwhite. And then I saw your tremendously stupid post and I got sucked into your strange world.

Yeah I use the kindle app on my phone and tablet occasionally and it's good but I also own two kindles, the standard and the paperwhite and I have to say the kindles themselves are great. I read the paperwhite each night and it only needs charged up monthly, it's great on the eyes and the light emitted from it is very long so I can read and my partner is still practically in the dark.

The standard kindle is good too with the e-ink display being great for the eyes and the battery lasting 3-4 weeks.

I'd also say if u get a kindle all the books sync between devices so you can read on your phone or tablet and pick up from where you left off on your Kindle later and visa versa, that's the best feature for me.

They don't have the market sewn up (at least in europe, the usa is another matter). You can't even rent library books with a kindle, as Overdrive uses epub in the UK, while it uses mobi/azw3 in the USA, where the kindle is dominant.

Kobo, Onyx or Sony are a better choice over here, and even then, more people use tablets to read on than ereaders.

Try buying one of the other devices other than the Kindle here....Barnes and Noble pulled out of the UK market with the Nook and Sony pulled out of the eReader market altogether. As far as I am aware the only other device left in competition now with the Kindle is Kobo, at least in the supermarket/retail bricks and mortar sectors.

Out of preference I prefer using an eReader for reading paperback books on because of the e-ink, and a tablet for digital magazines/comics.

My trusty old Sony PRS-650 serves me very well, mainly because I have no need for wi-fi, I somehow never find myself stuck for needing to put a book on it when on holiday anywhere, so have no need for an e-commerce store on an eReader device. On the occasions that Amazon have the best price on a book I strip the DRM and convert to ePub.

What a daft opinion. What's wrong with a business model that reduces the price of something and makes up the shortfall with advertising revenue? Plenty of apps do it, as do all newspapers, magazines, TV and radio.
As for kindle being a walled garden, that may be so, but it just comes down to personal preference. For me, amazon's customer service, convenience and variety, plus the ability to borrow thousands of titles included with prime membership make the choice easy.

My s4 mini is too small to comfortably read from but is the right size for a mobile (i.e. not too big to fit in my handbag or my hand for that matter) I have the traditional keyboard kindle and wouldn't swap it for the world. In fact I bought another one recently as my original is getting a bit tired. I don't get ads on it either, lol.
Back to the deal - oh yes, that was what we were talking about wasn't it? (_;) Good find, OP, thank you for sharing. Heat added for a good deal, not one I need or want to take up, but that part is actually irrelevant.

Contact amazon, and explain to them it is for your young son or daughter and that you don't want the adds on for them to click. They remove it free of charge.

Sony stopped manufacturing ereaders (although they just released a new pdf reader last month), but it's still possible to pick up new a PRS-T3. It's definitely pretty sad the way the market is, but amazon really haven't got the market sewn up here - although they no doubt will if they are allowed to get their own way.

I've got a number of ereaders, but I prefer to use a tablet for books - refresh rate of eink is far too slow and bothers me, and I've never had any kind of eye strain from reading an LCD panel. I can get ~16hours of reading between charges on a basic android tablet, which isn't much less than I get from eink devices, plus I appreciate the customisation available - to get that level on an eink device I'd have to spend £500+ on an onyx android reader running moon+reader pro.

I wasn't talking about myself though :

The Nielsen survey contained another first: mobile phones and tablets overtook e-readers as the most common device used to read ebooks, with readers favouring multifunctional devices over dedicated e-reader brands such as Kindle and Nook.

Sales of ereaders are falling year on year. Amazon dominate the ebook market in the US, but it isn't anywhere near as clean cut here.

I have no need of stores on my devices either, but I do run an OPDS server hosting all my ebooks, which I'll connect to on the rare occasion I need to copy a book while away from home.

For goodnesss sake, if this is the ereader the only ads are recommendations of books you might want to read when you first switch on. One touch on the screen and they're gone.
