Kindle Oasis (small, Preferred: Woot)

Reading a good book can be one of life’s greatest pleasures, and e-readers make it easy to access great stories and store thousands of books without the clutter. If you’re thinking about buying a new e-reader, Woot is offering a large discount on the international edition of the 9th-generation Kindle Oasis for today only.

This previous generation Oasis is not easy to find and is usually only available in used condition. That makes this a good deal for those who want a Kindle Oasis in new condition but don’t want to splurge on the latest model, which starts at $249.99. The 9th-generation Oasis lacks the adjustable warm light of the newest version, but is otherwise unchanged.

The Kindle Oasis is a premium e-reader that we called the best overall e-reader. The only thing that makes this model international is the packaging, as users must pick the language for the e-reader during setup no matter what edition they buy.

The 9th-generation Oasis features 8GB of storage, a 7-inch display with 300 pixels-per-inch (PPI), physical page-turning buttons, and battery life of up to six weeks when reading for half an hour per day. It also has a waterproof design and even works with Audible books so you can listen to your favorite books. 

We loved its thin design, bright screen, tactile page-turning buttons, easy library access, and the Kindle store’s massive selection of books. The only downside is that Amazon e-readers do not support the industry standard EPUB format, meaning you can’t buy books from other online sellers. 

Overall, the Oasis is the best e-reader on the market. It’s perfect for bookworms or anyone else who values a premium e-reading experience.
