Amazon's Kindle Scribe is the retail mammoth's best eReader yet. Over a month past the Kindle Scribe's release date, Amazon's new reading tablet is now seeing a price drop. If one of your new year resolutions is to read more, here's a deal you might like. 

Currently, Amazon offers its 16GB Kindle Scribe eReader for $295 (opens in new tab). It ships with a basic pen and 4 free months of Kindle Unlimited. Normally it costs $339, so that's $45 in savings. This marks the Kindle Scribe's lowest price ever in one of the best tablet deals of January so far.

Save $45 on the Amazon Kindle Scribe. This e-reader packs a 10.2-inch 300ppi Paperwhite display, adjustable front light and 16GB of storage. It ships with its own magnetic stylus pen for easy storage. 

Amazon's Kindle Scribe is one of the best eReaders with writing capabilities. It's also a cheaper alternative to the soon-to-be-realeased $399 Lenovo Smart Paper — especially at this deal price. The Kindle Scribe sports a 10.2-inch 300ppi Paperwhite display, adjustable front light, 16GB of storage, and magnetic stylus pen. Amazon offers the 32GB Kindle Scribe for $335 (opens in new tab) ($55 off). Not to be outdone, big box retailer Best Buy mirrors this deal (opens in new tab). For $24 more, you can get the maximum capacity 64GB Kindle Scribe for $359 (opens in new tab) ($60 off) at Amazon or Best Buy (opens in new tab)

Although we didn't test it, Amazon Kindle Scribe review ratings average 4 out of 5-stars. Happy bookworms love the eReader's writing support, reading experience and slim design that's comfortable to hold. The Kindle Scribe's ambient light sensor and digital sticky notes functions to annotate books were also a hit with users.

The included four months of free Kindle Unlimited puts more than 3 million eBooks at your fingertips. Additionally, you get to peruse a library of over a million nonfiction titles and audiobooks — well into the thousands.

Now up to $60 off, the Kindle Scribe is more affordable than ever. It's a worthy Kindle Paperwhite upgrade if you want an eReader with note taking capabilities.
