Don’t own a Kindle? If you’re considering getting one, now’s a great time because Amazon has two great new Kindle offers:
1) a Kindle WiFi with special offers for only $114; and
2) the newest deal (just announced 2 days ago) a Kindle 3g + WiFi with special offers for only $164.
Take a look at both of them here, as well as the other types of Kindles. I think the 3g with special offers is a really sweet deal – it’s about $100 less than I paid for my Kindle 2.
