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.

A Woman of No Importance:
The Untold Story of the American Spy Who Helped Win World War II
by Sonia Purnell
France was falling. Burned-out cars, once strapped high with treasured possessions, were nosed crazily into ditches. Their beloved cargoes of dolls, clocks, and mirrors lay smashed around them and along mile upon mile of unfriendly road. Their owners, young and old, sprawled across the hot dust, were groaning or already silent. Yet the hordes just kept streaming past them, a never-ending line of hunger and exhaustion too fearful to stop for days on end.
Ten million women, children, and old men were on the move, all fleeing Hitler’s tanks pouring across the border from the east and the north. Entire cities had uprooted themselves in a futile bid to escape the Nazi blitzkrieg that threatened to engulf them. The fevered talk was of German soldiers stripped to the waist in jubilation at the ease of their conquest. The air was thick with smoke and the stench of the dead. The babies had no milk, and the aged fell where they stood. The horses drawing overladen old farm carts sagged and snarled in their sweat-drenched agony. The French heat wave of May 1940 was witness to this, the largest refugee exodus of all time.
Day after day a solitary moving vehicle weaved its way through the crowd with a striking young woman at the wheel. Private Virginia Hall often ran low on fuel and medicines but still pressed on in her French army ambulance toward the advancing enemy. She persevered even when the German Stukas came screaming down to drop 110-pound bombs onto the convoys all around her, torching the cars and cratering the roads. Even when fighter planes swept over the treetops to machine-gun the ditches where women and children were trying to take cover from the carnage. Even though French soldiers were deserting their units, abandoning their weapons, and running away, some in their tanks. Even when her left hip was shot with pain from continually pressing down on the clutch with her prosthetic foot.
