Amazon has just lowered by $50 the price of its top-shelf Kindle model, and it looks like it’s for good.
We are working on an Amazon Prime Day 2018 price watch list, and we’ve just spotted something Kindle fans would love to hear.
The price of Kindle Voyage has been lowered from
$199.99 to $149.99 for the Wi-Fi-only variant with special offers.
The new price is displayed as the regular one. There is no information about any deal or a limited-time special offer the Voyage is a part of.
The price change must have happened after Father’s Day 2018, so it’s either today or yesterday. During the weekend, the price of the model was still set at $199.99.
We know it for sure as we have prepared and updated an overview of deals for Father’s Day 2018, and Kindle Voyage was not on the list. Well, the model hardly gets into any deals. Last time its price was slashed to $169.99 as a part of Kindle 10th Anniversary Deals in October 2017. Kindle Voyage Essentials Bundle was offered for Cyber Monday 2017 with a price lowered by $25 (and now, as the price of the e-reader has been cut, it’s further down to $229.97).
The only chance to grab Kindle Voyage at a reduced price for Father’s Day 2018 was to visit Amazon Warehouse Deals and get the certified refurbished device. Its price was the same as the new regular price – $149.99.
Kindle Voyage is already four years old. It was released in October 2014 and was the first e-reader with 300 ppi display resolution. It was the most advanced and thinnest Kindle at that time, offering the brightest front light – by 39% brighter than in Kindle Paperwhite.
The device features a unique way to turn pages, called Page Press, with custom-designed force sensors located under page-turn buttons.

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
by Suzanne Collins
Part 1: The Mentor
Coriolanus released the fistful of cabbage into the pot of boiling water and swore that one day it would never pass his lips again. But this was not that day. He needed to eat a large bowl of the anemic stuff, and drink every drop of broth, to prevent his stomach from growling during the reaping ceremony. It was one of a long list of precautions he took to mask the fact that his family, despite residing in the penthouse of the Capitol’s most opulent apartment building, was as poor as district scum. That at eighteen, the heir to the once-great house of Snow had nothing to live on but his wits.
His shirt for the reaping was worrying him. He had an acceptable pair of dark dress pants bought on the black market last year, but the shirt was what people looked at. Fortunately, the Academy provided the uniforms it required for daily use. For today’s ceremony, however, students were instructed to be dressed fashionably but with the solemnity the occasion dictated. Tigris had said to trust her, and he did. Only his cousin’s cleverness with a needle had saved him so far. Still, he couldn’t expect miracles.
The shirt they’d dug from the back of the wardrobe—his father’s, from better days—was stained and yellowed with age, half the buttons missing, a cigarette burn on one cuff. Too damaged to sell in even the worst of times, and this was to be his reaping shirt? This morning he had gone to her room at daybreak, only to find both his cousin and the shirt missing. Not a good sign. Had Tigris given up on the old thing and braved the black market in some last-ditch effort to find him proper clothing? And what on earth would she possess worth trading for it? Only one thing—herself—and the house of Snow had not yet fallen that far. Or was it falling now as he salted the cabbage?
