Waterfi Kindle Paperwhite

With its touch-only control, 1,100-book capacity, eight-week charge, and dimmable front-lit screen, the Kindle Paperwhite is the best e-reader available. Courtesy of a special coating from San Diego–based Waterfi, it can now be made waterproof. Might as well drag that beach chair a little closer to the surf. [From $220; waterfi.com]
