It's 119 for me on Amazon. This one seems a good deal in comparison even if not the very latest model.
I've got the 7th gen but am getting the newest for Christmas as I wanted the extra storage and waterproofing. Mine gets filled up (I read 100 books a year though so might be a special case! ;) ) and I like to read in the bath, so for me that £20 is well worth it. The old one works perfectly well and I'm passing it on to my son so I reckon - if they need those benefits ( big reader, read by the pool or in the bath, etc) its worth it but if not maybe older one is fine.
This is a good deal so heat, unfortunately Currys store is not that near to me and no delivery only C&C so will use time and fuel picking it up, will have to spend £10 more at Amazon for convenience
New one also has better back lighting (5 LED's) & Audible, so I would recommend that if you can afford it. Slightly lighter and thinner too. I've heated this deal though as it's £10 better than Amazon's own pricing.
This or £20 extra for the newer one which is waterproof and double storage? It's for a gift.
