They were on sale for 89.99, what? 4 or 6 months ago. And have been full price since. And don't seem to sell at a discount on eBay etc. This deal seems pretty okay, if you want an ereader sooner than later.

Warm light for this gives it an advantage over the Kindle Paperwhite. IDK how good library integration is tho.

It's true that this has been $10 cheaper so historically not the best SD on this e-Reader, but if you want one right now, you can get it straight from Kobobooks.com $30 off of normal pricing with FS.

I think this deal is to compete with Prime Day 2020.

In terms of eReaders, in this price catagory and form factor I think this beats out all Kindles (Paperweight, Voyage) due to the following:

1. Double the storage capacity (8GB vs 4GB) at this price range
2. Warm light capability (only the $250 Kindle Oasis does this)
3. Much better compatibility with borrowing ebooks from the library (overdrive downloading native)
4. More ebook file type compatibility (14 file formats supported natively (EPUB, EPUB3, PDF, MOBI, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, TIFF, TXT, HTML, RTF, CBZ, CBR) allowing comic/graphic/magazine reading
5. Large 1500mAh battery for longest run time
6. 300ppi high resolution good quality screen
7. Loads of great reviews on GoodReads, PCMag, etc.
8. Can import Kindle books into Kobo using Calibre
9. Can mod in the following ways
a. Increase storage to 128GB
b. Root
c. Load android

Nice!

Edit : since people are not getting what I meant, I was pointing out the funny typo in the above post.

We have a mix of kobos (I have an aura HD) and kindles (wife has oasis and I gave our daughter my old voyage).

I'll say that the kobos are just generally cleaner to use, especially for kids who are using Overdrive/Libby to check out ebooks from the library. The Kindle overdrive integration is kludgy and having a kids account on the reader makes things awkward.

I've gone ahead and put the voyage up for sale and picked this up for my daughter.

I think you meant Paperwhite?

Kindle Paperwhite is great if you've decided to stay in the Amazon ecosystem but if you want to read anything other than an e-book they are not that great (i.e. pdf, comic books, graphic novels, magazines, etc).

Also, if you're interested in using your e-reader to check out books from the library, (as another poster mentioned) Kobo readers are much preferred.

Nice!
Except no whispersync, so it loses.
I want the same book on my device and my app and I want it to be in the same location.

I call this "toilet reading", but it is really slick to be able to sync books across multiple devices.

Don't forget being able to email books to other Kindles. Nice not having to talk someone through on how to sideload a book and just email it to their device halfway across the world.

The Kobo app is available on both the Amazon App Store and Google Play so I'm not sure why you couldn't syn all your devices to your Kobo library.

Definitely. There's native Overdrive support on-device.

Yes, library browsing using an Overdrive account is baked into Kobo's OS. You'll need to make an overdrive account and then link your library account number to your overdrive account within the Kobo settings menu.

This video will explain it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-iVb-vln00

Pulled the trigger and ordered one. My primary use is reading library books in bed before going to sleep. So the overdrive integration and warm light are a big plus.

My understanding is that the kobo app will only sync purchased books between kobo and app.
It won't sync side-loaded books, for example if I use calibre
