    I just found out some people still read books in baths - me i just shower - but i still doubt anyone would want to pay 230 pounds since normal kindle is a lot less

    Re: Amazon announces waterproof Kindle Oasis

    Used my old kindle with a keyboard many times in the bath, the key is to not put the kindle in the bath but only yourself. If you get your hands wet, dry them off.

    I think my kindle cost £100 about 7 years ago, still going very strong! One of the few gadgets that I haven't replaced with an upgraded version.

    Those reviews are priceless, a quote from one :-

    "Got this for the Mother in-law for bath time, hoping it'd be crap, her kindle would slip out and electrocute her. So far, this bloody thing is staying in one piece. Great for waterproof kindling, crap for murder."

    Lmao
