With summer officially starting this Saturday, you’re probably wondering how you’ll get in all your summer reading when shipping times have been particularly long, especially for the coveted best-sellers. For a quick solution, might we recommend the Kindle Paperwhite? Strategist managing editor Maxine Builder calls it the best thing she bought in 2018, and after months in quarantine, she thinks it’s even more useful now. Her model is currently discontinued, but the newest model is waterproof (think: poolside reading) and features a higher screen resolution, so it’s particularly good for outdoors. And now, just in time for summer, it’s nearly 25 percent off on Amazon. You can easily plow through your long list of books thanks to its instant-access feature, and if you’re more of an audiobook person, you can download some of those, too.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
