Cheapest with light?

A friend needs a cheap e-reader with a light. I can't think of any specific other features they need. Slight preference for Amazon.

Probably would go for a used older one on eBay.

I'm thinking a 3rd Gen Paperwhite? Is there an older one that's worth it? They don't want the absolute cheapest, if there is a better one for only $5 more, that could be worth it, but they want pretty cheap.

Thank you in advance!

Note, recommend going for Paperwhite 3 (2015/2016) or at the very least Paperwhite 2 (2013). Don't get the 1st gen.

Can also sometimes find a cheap deal on a Paperwhite on Craigslist or https://www.shopgoodwill.com/ (just be careful about blacklisted devices).

Worth watching for offers on the PW. It goes on sale fairly frequently. Also worth keeping an eye out for refurbished devices at Amazon - they can be very good deals.
