imageAmazon is offering a $100 discount on Audible-ready devices for members of its $14.95/month Audible audiobook club, including the Kindle 2. This would reduce the price of the Kindle 2 to $159.

While I make no bones that the Kindle 2 is not the perfect e-book reader, and Amazon is still doing some things that really annoy me, that price would make the Kindle 2 a lot more tempting if I had that much money to spare.

Of course, given that the Kindle 2 was sold out the last time I checked, it is anybody’s guess when the Kindle might actually arrive.

Update, 9:45 p.m.: Actually it’s in stock now as of now. Just checked. – D.R.
