Amazon ebook sale


There’s nothing to distract you from the issues in the world quite like a good book, and Amazon’s coming to the rescue with great deals on over a dozen popular titles, including Room, Fool Me Once, and, uh, Clear And Present Danger. Be sure to head over to Amazon to see the rest.

Luminoodle LED TV backlight strip, $17

We see deals on HDTV bias light strips all the time, but never one that’s 118” in length. $17 would be a solid price even for a shorter strip, and you can cut this one to length to fit any TV.

LED bias light strips plug directly into your TV’s USB port for power, and stick to the back of the set via built-in adhesive. Once you turn your TV on, the light strip will cast a soft glow on the wall behind it, which can reduce eyestrain when watching in the dark, and improve your TV’s perceived black levels.


Lenovo Chromebook N22, $185


With 4GB of RAM and an IPS touchscreen, the Lenovo N22 is a little more advanced than your average Chromebook. Today only, you’ll only have to pay the bargain basement price of $185. And yes, it runs Android apps.

Intermatic DT122K two-outlet digital timer, $10


You don’t necessarily need an internet-connected outlet switch to flick your lights on and off on a schedule; you just need this $10 gadget. It can actually program two separate outlets, and includes sunset and random time modes, which is perfect for making it seem like somebody’s home while you’re away.

Sport-Brella, $30


Bar none, Sport-Brella is the ultimate beach umbrella, and Amazon’s discounting the red model for just $30 today, an all-time low.

Unlike a regular umbrella, Sport-Brella leans backward and attaches to the sand with stakes, creating a kind of semi-private cocoon with enough space for a couple of chairs and a cooler. Best of all, it sets up in about five minutes (once you know what you’re doing), and can provide a full day’s worth of privacy and sun protection.
