The price is showing as £79.99 by default now for me and says this deal is available to prime users. Without the need of Alexa.

I think they are including the discounted annual prime membership (£20 off) and also being bad at maths.

Don't think I've seen it as cheap as this, £89.99 was the best previous price? Voted hot.
I notice they do a 32gb version too but relatively a lot more money. Is it worth it? Last time I had a Kindle you could fit loads of books into 4gb so guessing it hasn't changed much since?

It is not showing if I go to my amazon account but if I ask through my echo it offers it to me there. I ordered it and it’s now showing on my order page at the reduced price. I got an email with the details this morning making me aware of the deal.

There is a few other offers but this was the stand out one. Just ask Alexa “what are my offers”

The new ones are 8gb or 32gb. I went for the 8gb

I don't see the point of anything over the entry level model. I only keep the books I want to read on my Kindle; others can be downloaded in a few seconds.

Sorry, yes I meant 32gb. The question remains, is it worth it?

Did it offer you the 32 GB. If so, at what price?
Anybody know a good deal on a cover for a Paperwhite please?
Great deal BTW!

Just read that a 2gb Kindle could hold up to 1100 books, so unless I'm downloading 4k high definition surround sound versions now then I guess 8gb would be more than enough.

No, but don't just buy the cheapest. I bought the leather Kindle cover about 6 years ago and it is still in perfect condition despite being used daily. I know people who have bought the cheap eBay covers, but they fall to pieces very quickly (the covers that is).

I think so too. I don't use a fraction of the space on mine. I could probably cope with a 8Mb version.
Ah I get it, it's only available with alexa.

Works with the Alexa app, so anyone can get it if they have a smartphone.

Thanks. A 32 GB is worth it if you use a lot of audible books. I do. Otherwise a lesser volume should suffice if only for books.

Ah thanks, will download it now.
Just confused, £30 more for the 32GB, would I need that or would the 8GB be enough :/ .

See comments above. Unless you're using it for audio books then unlikely you'll need the bigger size. Even then it's touch and go whether it's worth it.

I would say not even slightly worth it, read a book, remove it, I've never run out of disk space on my 8gb
Thanks for your responses, I think the 8gb is fine.
Edited by: "_AK_" 13th Jul
I have the 2015 Paperwhite which still works fine but the battery life isn't what it used to be and there is some back-light inconsistency, which can be annoying but perfectly tolerable. Is this model worth the upgrade?
I heard that the 32Gb is mainly for the Asian markets where people read a lot of manga on them. If you're just reading text, the entry level is fine

I got the JE Tech cover for £5.99, 6 months ago and it's fine - no sign of wear

It wouldn't protect it from a big drop, but it means you can throw the Kindle loose in a bag and not worry about keys scratching the screen
Prime day soon though?
Gutted im waiting for one of these to drop and I don’t have Alexa. Will have to wait for Prime day

Totally agree
I've had a Kobo Aura for the last 5 years, but the background light isn't what it used to be.

Is it possible to completely avoid the Amazon eco-system on a Kindle these days? I would want to add books via USB/WiFi and not get these synced to the Amazon cloud (most is job-related and I would prefer not breaching my contract by uploading sensitive information to the cloud)? Ideally, I would not even want to log into amazon on the device.

Also, has it gotten any more practical to read pdf documents on these or do you essentially need to stick to mobi (even via conversion)?
I was holding out for the new Oasis. But £259 seems way overboard when I see stuff like this.
It says in the description that this is the KINDLE PAPERWHITE 8 GO, I can't find many cases on Amazon for it, all listed are for the 10th gen.
I have the older 4GB version which is barely half full despite the daily free book downloads.

You can add via USB but using WiFi means the book will be in the Amazon cloud.

You can disable most of the Amazon focused UI too.
