Hi..
Anyone tried the link to buy Amazon Kindle at $88usd?
Kindle $88 Amazon

it says shipping to singapore but when i select the country, it says not available for shipping??

Anyway, is kindle recommended for kids? Isnt it bad for your eyes when they are lookign at the monitor/screen instead of a book?

Amazon USA don't ship directly to Singapore. I'm using ezbuy's ship-for-me service.

It's good for eyes as Kindle electronic ink technology is close to normal ink on paper. Definitely many times better with less eyes strain than looking at a typically bright tablet LCD screen.

Is there anyway to get amazon to ship to SG though? Or should I order and have it posted to fren in states and get her to post it to me in SG?

first timer here thinking of getting a kindle. i do read on the go and it's only for that. would the paperwhite 2019 be an overkill? i also read graphic novels which seems the kindle is not the best way to read those due to it's non-color screen. anyone can advise would getting a tablet (7") be better? i already have an ipad pro 10.5 but it's just too big to take out and read it in public.
Graphic novel on kindle
Spoiler!

Kindle Oasis is 7"...It will be better than reading on a 7" tablet...If you don't mind reading graphic novels in Black and White like reading manga, I think Oasis will fit your requirement more than the Paperwhite....

U try booksavenue lo...Recently I see they got some promo on free audiobooks. Before 30th june to sign by their site.

They also got a guide how to get free VPN via their promo links. Dunno how this company still can survive with all the promo codes sia.

Power to the consumers! Lol
