It's a drop for refurbs. They've been running $139.
They were running $218 just a few months ago so they've dropped 50% in less than 6 months.

The K3 must be real close.

Even as a refurb, that's a great price.

Ah! Now I get it. I thought that was just a terribly illogical comment (and incidentally, wrong). But you're a seller, bashing your competitor's deals. Good one!

not so much bashing as the title is very misleading.

In which at a $109, doesnt' exactly offer much in value in light of the latest REAL price drops.

I agree that the title is misleading... Dulin's comment is not bashing anything.

Im afraid you've misjudge me. I dont do that. Its not wrong to point out that its the price of a refurbished unit and as someone else pointed out in the other thread

Just before this one went up there was one for $139 and there is still a global refurb going for $169.

I was simply trying to say that the price of a refurbished/used unit is not indicative of a "price cut".

We're still not getting anywhere near the $49 Kindle, but I can see a slew of $99 eReaders in the near future.

Even having a Kindle myself already, I'm tempted at $109.
