If only they'd discount the Paperwhite. (-; though since they haven't, I'm not as tempted to get one!

A question for Amazon!

I'm thinking about getting the basic.

Yes, if I didn't already have a Basic, I'd be getting one. But I really want to try the PW for nighttime reading. (-:

Can the $56.00 kindle download apps as well? Is it Color or black and white?

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 9, 2013 11:17:11 AM PST
It's black and white (actually gray-scale) and it runs no apps. It also has no speakers or headphone jack, so has no audio capability.

The $56 Kindle is a basic e-reader --- black letters on a gray background, no apps. Reading, just reading of books consisting mainly of text.

you can play very basic games on the basic kindle (which you have to purchase but some are free. grey scale mostly word puzzles but they can be fun and they don't require internet access to play, perhaps you'll need to reconnect the internet once in a while) (which I can't find a link to on the amazon website but if you search "free kindle games" or amazon digital services things should appear.

Amazon did have a sale for the Paperwhite a few weeks ago. Anyone who owned a kindle fire was able to purchase a Paperwhite for $19. :) Great deal...if you had a fire.

Sarida says:
I don't think it was "anyone who owned a fire." Because I sure didn't get an opportunity to purchase one, and I sure would have!

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 9, 2013 6:35:58 PM PST
AFAIK from discussions among those who did and those who didn't, it was random selection from among people who owned a Fire but *didn't* already own an e-ink kindle.

I remember that! I just didn't want people to think that "everyone who owned a Fire" was given that opportunity.

I have the Touch, and am pretty happy with it. I still liked my KK better, though. And I'm still thinking of purchasing the Basic if it is still offered. I haven't checked.

Also...I got the extra power adapter some time back in a lightning deal for $5.00. So it seems like a good plan to go ahead and get it.

My old Kindle froze up,has a picture on half of the page .i have a app,but don't like to take I-pad every where I go,would like to get a paper white ,can I trade it in ? Or would I be happy with the basic kindle ,or would paper white be better for outside reading,& in the dark?

So do we think the Paper white 3g will go on sale before Xmas?

Eric says:
Well I pulled the trigger. I really like the feel of a real book but this deal was just to good to pass up. I had a $15 credit also so I got the basic for a mere $40! I love the idea of a Kindle but I just love "real" books too! Lol. Well an early Merry Christmas to me!

I think you will love it--just think, you'll be able to carry hundreds of books with you, and have lots more in the cloud that you can access whenever you have a wi-fi signal. (-:

The Basic, especially given today's price, is lovely. *Very light weight, nice crisp screen, and a great spare (assuming you have a Paperwhite) to lend to good friends, or to rely on as a backup. If I didn't have one already, I'd be grabbing today's deal.

M. Ratcheson says:
And I think the deal disappeared within 5 seconds or thereabouts. There were only 5,000 available, and tons more people who wanted it. Somehow I lucked out, and I can't believe how lovely an experience reading on a Paperwhite is, before I successfully grabbed it, my favorite ereader was the Basic.
