KindlehandThis news is a few days old, but for folks lusting after an Amazon Kindle, it’s worth the mention. Oprah Winfrey featured the Kindle on Friday’s episode, which is the one where she shares her favorite things. Although I didn’t watch the show this year, it’s actually one that I usually catch. No, I don’t hear about any new devices or anything, it’s simply interesting to see what items make Oprah’s cut.

Jeff Bezos was on the show as well and after sharing all of the wonderful features of the eBook reader, he and Oprah teamed up to offer a $50 discount code that’s good through the end of this week. Use the code OPRAHWINFREY to nab a Kindle for $309. That’s a pretty solid deal for a device that uses eInk and has integrated EV-DO for near-instant book purchases in Sprint 3G coverage areas. If that deal isn’t appealing, try the super-secret discount code of KEVINISAGEEK; your Kindle will be pre-loaded with every book I’ve ever written for the all-inclusive, extra-special price of just $359…

  1. I just bought my wife one last week and it is a fantastic reader. She fell in love with it at first download…

    It makes sense that since I’ve bought one now, that there should be a sale.

  2. Don’t worry, Kevin, it wasn’t THE “favorite things” show. The Kindle was just part of Oprah’s Fridays Live show, half of which was dedicated to how to turn two roasted chickens into three different meals. The Kindle segment was only about 15 minutes long.

  3. Thanks Jenn, I feel better now because I do like the “Favorite Things” show. Especially the part where the audience gets one of everything… know where I can get seats? ;)

  4. There was once a rumor going around that Brad Pitt wasn’t able to get his mom tickets to a FT show. If true, your best bet would be to have Brad get tickets for himself and then take them when he’s not looking. :D
