Amazon announces new, limited time $30 Discounts on select Kindle E-Readers. Updated for Kindle 10th Anniversary page added tonight.

Amazon just announced a "limited time" discount of $30 off select Kindle E-readers.  You'll see which ones in the Comparison chart image above.

If you click on the image, it'll take you to Amazon's full Comparison Chart of features for each E-reader, or you can click here for that.

Their "Limited time" deals tend to be sudden and short-term, but their e-mail wording was:
' $30 off select Kindle E-readers, plus more deals
    Celebrating 10 years of reading '
The basic Kindle, normally $80, is $50 for or however long they run this.  That's probably the lowest price I've seen on that model.  It has Amazon's Audible capability (using Bluetooth, same method for the New Oasis) but does not have built-in lighting.

  It's the lightest one of this current set, weight-wise -- an important factor for many.  Its display resolution is 167ppi vs the 300ppi of the other Kindles.  The text would be a little less bold than on the other Kindles.

The Paperwhite's current sale price is just $10 more than the regular price of the basic Kindle but has built-in lighting and the higher-definition display, although it has no Audible capability.

Will get this quick blog entry off, so blog readers will be aware of the temporary $30 discount and have enough time to read the comparisons and all of the Amazon page details to see which features might be more or less important for you.

UPDATE: Amazon has added a Kindle 10th Anniversary Deals page and appears to still be adding to it.
  Included are better trade-in terms than usual, though not startling.  But they're featuring a possible $75 toward a new Paperwhite when trading in an older Kindle E-reader (another "limited time" offer), depending on the condition of your used Kindle and the way in which you prefer to receive $credits.

For other info (general), you can visit the blog anytime at A Kindle World on the web.  That info or link is for those who still choose to have the last 25 blog entries delivered to their Kindle readers via the blog edition for Kindle E-readers (US).  This is a 14-day free trial and 99c per month if it's wanted.

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
