Amazon’s latest Kindle Oasis ($270 as configured via Amazon) is the ultimate e-reader. Two important features debut with this 2017 model: It’s waterproof, and it supports audiobooks via Audible.
Make no mistake: Reading on this device is a luxurious pleasure. With a starting price of $270 (or $250 with “Special Offer” lockscreen ads), however, the Oasis floats beyond many budgets. For everyone else, we suggest picking up a Kindle Paperwhite, which can be had for half the cost.
