(Newser) – There's no need to leave your house to snag a killer Black Friday deal, like the one Amazon just announced: a Kindle e-reader for $89. The site disclosed the deal on its Facebook page, David Carnoy reports for CNET. The only catch: You can only get the previous generation (Amazon's second generation) at that price; the latest generation will still cost $139. The deal begins at 9am Pacific time.

Notes Carnoy, "We're not sure how it would go over to gift someone an 'old' model, but hey, certain people might not know the difference." Can't decide if you want an e-reader or not? Click here to see how buying one might change your reading habits. Or click here for more Black Friday deals.
