When New York writer Brian Feldman reviewed the Amazon Fire tablet, he said it excelled at the two things you want a tablet for: “watching stuff and reading stuff.” Now, with bars, restaurants, and movie theaters shuttered, those simple forms of at-home entertainment are more necessary than ever — which is why we’re excited to see this Fire tablet on sale for just $50. Plus, our friends at the Verge let us know that Amazon is offering two free months of Kindle Unlimited, so you can use your newfound downtime to finally dive into Tana French’s oeuvre of psychological mysteries, see why everyone’s talking about My Dark Vanessa, or do some relevant (if terrifying) pandemic reading.
